Small Acts of Love Have Great Impact in the World

Episode 190 - La'Wana Harris

In the Kingdom of God, small acts of kindness can mean the world. La’Wana Harris joins the show to discuss the importance of prayer, service, and obedience. She currently takes trips to Haiti to help end illiteracy and to spread the love of Christ and has a goal to provide 10,000 books to kids in Haiti by the end of 2017. Also, she works in the States as a motivational speaker, a writer, and a worker for social justice.

In all of her involvements, the Lord has been at work to reach those in Haiti and in her local community. She clearly carries the Word and prayer as her weapons as she goes to share the Gospel. From bringing books and creating puppet shows, to bringing smiles and creating conversation, La’Wana follows the Lord to show the love of God to anyone she meets.
