YOU are invited to be part of God's mission to bring healing to this broken world, and to be "repairers of the breach," as the Prophet Isaiah proclaimed to Israel: Your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of many generations; you shall be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in.
