What do a 13-year-old Texas boy and a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor have in common?
At first glance? Seemingly nothing.
Yet, both have demonstrated incredible love with what little they have. Their stories hold the key to your happiness and success…
Not long ago, my young friend Jacob came up to me. He had heard me preach about the Holocaust survivors we are supporting, and, holding out a jar of money,
