Have You Saved a Life
Most of us think you have to be a doctor or firefighter to be saving
lives on a regular basis. We need to start thinking differently. You
can be saving lives on a regular basis. It takes so little time it can
be done during your lunch break.
The bodies that God has given us are very complex. Regardless of all of
the advances in technology we still can't create a substitute for many

will be saving multiple lives by being a blood donor. In addition, your
