"Being mindful of the words of the Lord Jesus, how He Himself said, it is more blessed - makes one happier and more to be envied - to give than to receive." Acts 20:35

Greeting Army of God,

Since the founding of A Promise to Help in 2003, we being obedient to God have embarked on missions to the black belt to share the love of Jesus. On August 4, 2012 we will continue our mission work by traveling to Gees Bend for the ninth consecutive year. We pulled out the past updates and read them reminiscing on how faithful God has been and how wonderful of an experience this has been for my family and for all of the hundreds of volunteers who have given their most precious gift, their time, to sow a seed of hope in the lives of so many who feel hopeless. What an epoch this past nine years has been and only God knows what memorable events that are to come. There are a few numbers that stood out in our review; 610 is the number of patients that we examined and treated for medical problems[4135 total], 2100 is the number we have served food to[13505 total], 1395 is the number of bags of clothes we have given out[8875 total], 350 toys at Christmas[2250 total], 485 book bags filled with school supplies[1735 total] and 249 is the number of men, women and children who have given their life to Christ[1872 total], "Give Glory to God". We've had over 4675 volunteers to join us in this mission movement and we don't take that lightly, we appreciate and value every volunteer young and old , black or white, male and female, present and in the spirit. We believe that the past 9 years were seeds that are primed to produce a harvest that is unprecedented in the Kingdom of God and we look forward to continuing to press forward toward the mark that God has set before us. God loves a cheerful giver, we encourage you to continue to give your time and resources to HELP those that are in need and we pray that God will continue to supply all your needs according to his riches and glory. Amen.

We believe that nine years marks the beginning of a new birth and sets the foundation for new hope in the black belt. Jesus ministry on earth only lasted three years but the seeds that he sowed are still producing fruit thousands of years later. He left with us the power to do even greater works, that is his testimony, what will our testimony be. We believe that universal healthcare is in our future. Please pray with us that quality healthcare, education and employment is in the near future for all who desire and need it. On our ninth anniversary mission to Gees Bend we will celebrate our new assignment with the taking of communion at 10:30 AM Saturday morning 08/04/2012 on the grounds of Gees Bend, join with us wherever you are and pray that God's will is and will be done.

APTH will continue to provide monthly, a free Medical Clinic staffed with volunteer physicians, nurses, technicians etc. to the Black belt Counties. Local volunteers will organize and handle the sites, scheduling and transportation needs of the community and APTH will also continue to feed, supply free clothes and share the Love of Jesus.
May God continue to bless you.
