Meet 3-year-old Stella, whose story seems unimaginable…

If you've been a friend of Heaven's Family for more than a year, you've probably noticed that this year we began sending, every fourth month, letters like this one instead of our monthly magazine. I've really appreciated these opportunities to personally communicate with you about one special pressing need. Let me tell you about another wonderful opportunity to be a blessing, show Jesus how much you love Him, and lay up treasure in heaven in the process.
