*The Time is NOW*-- Resources for Undocumented Students

I know that my blog posts are usually Biblical applications, but I wanted to dedicate a post about resources for undocumented students. After all, What Would Jesus Do [WWJD]? Side note, if you don't know who Jesus is, click here.

I will continue to update this blog post when I learn more information about a subject that is very near and dear to my heart. The other day, I was telling a couple of friends that I could totally see Jesus helping out our youth [and adults] if He was still walking amongst us today in 2012. And yes, I definitely know He is helping out right now in the situation from Heaven and "Lord, we praise you for it!"

hatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for ME." Matthew 25:40

The time is NOW to act + help others in need.

Be blessed and please pass on this blog post.
