Snappin’ Ministries provides special care for special care givers! Led by Barb Dittrich, she shares, “In our ministry, we have seen God’s love—one family, often one person at a time. It may be the meal that someone brings to the family whose child just had surgery. It may be in the woman who selflessly gives a mom some time off so she can refill her well. It may be in the teenager that accompanies a special child to Sunday school so that they get the individual attention and inclusion that they need. We have grown exponentially since our inception.”
