As a result of working with Blue Trust, we have had the blessing of serving others and being the hands and feet of Jesus without the burden of detailed financial management. God has allowed us to support various ministries, time to minister to our adult children and grandchildren, serve internationally and locally on short-term missions teaching Crown and building relationships to share our faith and make disciples.
