And while Hogwarts and Middle Earth may have been out of reach, it still seemed possible that life could unfold in magical ways. Take the movie Garden State, for example.

The Most Powerful Words You Can Speak

Two years ago, Hoboken Grace sent a team to Gulu, Uganda, for a Restore International Vision Trip. Their tour of northern Uganda took them to Restore Leadership Academy, where they held a graduation ceremony with Bob Goff, the group’s founder. They danced, watched balloons sail high into the air, and shared words of love and encouragement.

How I Almost Missed My Miracle

My name is Anna, and this is my story. One Sunday, Pastor Chris unexpectedly announced a mission trip to Uganda with three weeks’ notice. It immediately sparked my interest, but like most other times when I’ve heard that still small voice, I procrastinated.
