Deceived.

If you were expecting a heart-warming story about being thankful during this season, you may have to look elsewhere.

School. Food. Jesus. Not every kid hates school. Shocking, I know. Quality education at any level is very often a luxury in most of the places where GI works and ministers. In Ghana, West Africa, as it is in several countries in Africa, many children do not attend...
