This is the front and back of the t-shirt that all of the kids from her school will be wearing for the campaign day tomorrow!!!

Olivia places a Scripture on her locker every day and the kids really do see her as a “light” in the school!  They are singing, ‘This Little Light of Mine” after she speaks and the kids do their skit!

I love how God uses even a school club to reach out to the world!!

Matthew 5:16

In the same way, let your

light shine before others,

that they may see your

good deeds and glorify

your Father in heaven.

Praying we can all shine for Him today too,
