Wishful Wednesday . . . Charity

'I wish' .... I had never-ending funds to donate to a charity and it would be FCA and the Jiff Ministry!

These are two ministries very close to my heart! Memphis is a very urban city and many students play a sport as an attempt to get into college. FCA is a way to teach and mentor these athletes. It is an unthreating way to tell them about Christ when they otherwise might never have heard about him.

Jiff is Juvenile Intervention and Faith-Based Follow-Up. The JIFF ministry is based upon the conviction that crime and violence are in essence a spiritual problem, and while there may be other “factors” at work in a young offender’s life that need to be addressed, and are being addressed, ultimately these young people need a Savior to transform their lives and homes from the inside out. That Savior is Jesus, the Christ. God has stated in His Word: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!” That is their mission.

I know that both of these are Memphis area ministries but if I had never ending funds I would love to help expand these into other cities.

What charity would you give to? If you want to play along hop over to Kelsey's blog at The Seattle Smith's.
