If you are unable to donate or volunteer at present – or perhaps in addition – please sign up for our prayer list! By signing up to pray with and for us, you will be notified of our prayer needs. Here at The Mustard Seed, we know the vast strength of prayer, and are immensely grateful for your commitment.
