Imagine getting up in the morning searching for change throughout the house and after finding a few pennies, nickels and dimes you finally collect the right amount to walking to the local liquor store to buy a package of Ramen soup. Now imagine that package of Top Ramen Soup is the only meal you'll that day.
I watched a small child early one Sunday morning and wondered where were his parents? It broke my heart. After doing a little research, I found out that our Ministry, the Gethsemane Church is located in one of the poorest areas in South Central. The local Middle School is a Title 1 School. This type of school has a high percentages of children from low-income families. It is very difficult for these children to meet challenging state academic standards. The anxiety of poverty destroys an individuals self esteem.
Our desire is to develop a Food Program and a Tutor/Mentor Center for Youth and Adults in order to inspire, motivate, support and empower underprivileged and broken individuals in our area.
We are renovating our facility to accommodate our community. With all the new codes, laws and regulations the expense is far greater than expected. We've raised funds to start the project but not to complete it. If you would like to make a difference, Please Donate Today!
God bless you for your giving.
