Last night in Stillwater, Minnesota, a celebration of 10 years of Tutapona shined! One of our own, Carl & Julie Gaede founded this mission which brings trauma counseling to Uganda and Iraq currently. Our church has been behind them from the beginning and last night they celebrated 10 years!

To support their work, we sent Mike Jentes to bring greetings and blessings for this special occasion.

Because of our support, more than 40 thousand lives have been transformed and #40ThousandLights have been illuminated in their homes and communities. Tutapona couldn’t have done this without us!
