Those that God used in the past were just ordinary people with an extraordinary Master. They were not all champions of great faith, but little people who saw their own need, and put their small faith in a great God.  Winkie Pratney

We all experienced wonder as Alongsiders and leaders converged at Shalom Valley in Cambodia, realizing that the movement is built on ordinary people putting their small faith in a great God.
