Lead Pastor of Lighthouse Church in Ireland

“When we texted a family to invite them to the Bradenton Dream Center Christmas Dreamland event, the mother shared this: ‘I am sitting here crying right now because our light bill is past due and our rent has increased, so I was trying to figure out how my kids were going to have a Christmas. You all show God's love to my family in so many ways and it means so much.’”
