Thank you for providing all the information of the foundation of the Potters house! I, too have a heart for praying , so this information touched my heart. At one time,twenty plus years ago God called me to be the prayer coordinator for Tri-Unity Christian School. Praying is such a key for a believer. As I was reading the pages , it was Love That I saw and felt. It was a Haven with the showing of acceptance! This was how I felt as well when filling out my profile for volunteering, and again when I was accepted to help out with the school mailing. Thank you! I am an outside parent! A new volunteer!
