“Trauma is a vast mission field. I believe it is the mission field of the 21st century. Global trauma is the voice of our Savior calling to us through suffering humanity to follow Him in the fellowship of His sufferings. The question before the church is: will she go? We have said yes and pray you will join with us in interceding for this work.”
