How one man's faith is helping end famine with help from LDS Church
This article is silly. Two hands working can do more than 1000s of hands clasped
in prayer. If you really want to see a change, make it happen. Put forth the
effort to see change. Your will is only limited by your hands ability to
Re: The Atheist Provo, UTThe non-believer views the known universe
through a telescope, expounds on his knowledge, and proclaims that there is not
