Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Little Hearts Medical Team
Little Hearts Medical has a desire to help orphans and other children from low incomes families in China. The program is designed to offer much-needed medical care to children who have been diagnosed with congenital heart disease. The idea for Little Hearts was inspired when Mike and Tanya Lee adopted, over a period of several years, three children with congenital heart disease from China. This led to them to spearheading Little Hearts, an organization that acts as the liaison between cardiac care professionals in the United States with medical professionals in China.
The Mannings are now residing in Vancouver with their sons Liam and Henry. God has placed it on their hearts to open a YWAM outreach base in Battle Ground. Please pray for financial support, for property, for facilities, and for other provisions. Check out YWAM Battle Ground’s website.
