Holy Week -- friends, it's here!!

This is a very special week as we remember the events leading up to Jesus' death & resurrection.
This ONE WEEK that happened thousands of years ago changed our lives forever -- including Ellie Taylor's.

Listen to the video below to see how Ellie's relationship with Jesus led her to transfer to UNI this semester and go to Jamaica over Spring Break.

Also -- how cOoL is it that God chose to use BASIC (BASIC live, Lamentation Series, mission trips, etc) to bring His freedom and love into Ellie's life??!
