Knowing and respecting the language of another still opens doors. On the island of Sicily, an improbable but amazing story in missions continually is adding new chapters as that simple principle of knowing and respecting language is the basis for reaching the unreached.

Light for the Lost is key to making this happen.

Or perhaps more accurately, how can *I* fundraise?
