(seriously, here's your spot: ______________________ )Now that's out of the way, I'd like to highlight something I just heard about the one in which I was saved several years back. They took up a one-time offering and gathered 1.1 million dollars for global outreach all around the globe. Not only that, but they have allocated a disaster relief fund so that if anything should happen in the realm of a natural disaster there is a lump sum of $400,000 ready to go out right away.
I have never heard of something like this...
then again, that's why the Church is an awesome thing.
