YOU can be a part of this outreach. Please pray for SitP. The program began this summer and has reached a few families, but there are many more. Also, we need readers. If you can spare one hour on a Saturday morning, I promise you will be blessed. Thank you to everyone who has donated cereal, breakfast bars, books, your time or prayed.
