Message, symbol of unity crossing county lines
Then Jesus said to his disciples. “If any man come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Luke 9:23.

The effort deemed “Mississippi Glowing for Christ” will make its way into Tunica County on Oct. 20 and is a partnership between Mission Mississippi and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
