Why Does Tara Support Trek Thru Truth?

Children and their families have so many options to fill their time in today's world.  Often times this includes high-energy, over the top technology, and mind-blowing activities and entertainment.  In the midst of all this world has to offer the stories of God's word can get lost and seem boring and not relevant to today's generation.  However, the Good News of Jesus and the truth of His word is needed more than ever before.  Trek Thru Truth will bring His truth alive for all generations.  My why is because of the boys and girls and men and women who still need to hear that Jesus loves them and died on a cross and rose again so they could have eternal life! That Jesus is real and relevant and desires a relationship with them!
