Covenant Relationship Program

A donation of $1250 to Carmen Melendez and Alejandro Rodriguez of GYTTE (Give Ye Them to Eat) and a donation of $1250 to Carlos and Emily Romero of HFN (Heart for the Nations) will be made in 2017. The combined gifts will fulfill our yearly goal of giving $2500 to GBGM missionaries and will qualify SJA for 5-star recognition in 2017.

Bead for Life

Parties held to sell Ugandan made products. BeadforLife eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful beads. Women in Northern Uganda gather shea nuts and press them into shea butter for cosmetics and soaps. And people who care open their hearts, homes and communities to buy and sell both products.
