Covenant Relationship Program

Annual donations are made to UM Missionaries in Mexico, Miguel Mairena, Nan McCurdy and Advance Program GYTTE (Give Ye Them to Eat), as well as to Carlos and Emily Romero of HFN (Heart for the Nations) serving in Guatemala.  These donations help SJA qualify for recognition in the Five Star Mission Involvement Program.

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.
