What? I thought I just saw Jesus! (This should be us, Christian)

Want an idea of what Jesus looks like in today’s world?

 

 

Now, let us all go and do likewise…. including myself.

Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world.  ~ James 1:27
