Together, we can make WONDERS!

Working wonders for the youth…

Mike was recently released from jail for serving time on drug convictions and needed a helping hand to get started again.  He was given an opportunity by Covenant House,  a ShareLife-supported agency, to learn the culinary arts.  In the longer-term residence, mike has stable housing for a year and access to all of the support services at Covenant House.  His hard work and determination have paid off as he now has full responsibility for his station.  An additional 40,000 people were also given food, shelter, guidance, care and education through ShareLife agencies.  Please support ShareLife.

Next Sunday 26 May 2013 is ShareLife Sunday.  Please give generously.  You can work wonders!

A Sunday School teacher said to her children, “We have been learning about how powerful the kings and queens were in Biblical times.  But there is a higher power.  Who can tell me what it is?”  Tommy blurted out, “I know.  Aces.”
