Youth in the Rio Grande Valley challenged to show hope through photo contest

Stonegate Fellowship Church from Midland, Texas, generously donated several cameras to the Buckner Family Hope Center in Peñitas, Texas. The staff there had been checking them out to volunteers to photograph classes and events until Gabriel Flores, community coordinator at the Hope Center, got a great idea.
