Summer vacation is officially here for kids across the Quad Cities, so how do we keep our children and teens active and healthy during their summer break? Counselor Joannie DeBrito gives us a host of ideas for summer fun that promote mental and physical health. This conversation will arm you ahead of hearing "I'm bored" with strategies that are creative, full of adventure, and away from too much screen time.
We recently remembered those who gave their lives for freedom's cause and this week on our Voice of the Martyrs Update with Todd Nettleton we'll hear about a special Hearts of Fire Virtual Event where you can hear from four courageous women who have suffered greatly for the cause of the gospel. Todd will also update us on Susanna Koh, wife of kidnapped pastor Raymond Koh, as she employs the legal system to gain information and closure regarding her husband's disappearance and we'll hear a remarkable report of the work of God in a closed country where persecution is lessening! Join with us as we find cause for rejoicing and praise along with areas of concern and prayer in this update with Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs.
