Shelby G to NYC
Organized by: Shelby Galles
First and foremost, thank you for taking the time to read this. It is intended to give you an idea of next year’s mission and how you can be involved. To provide a brief testimony, I spent my childhood moving from city to city living with different relatives. My father has been in and out of jail my entire life; this partially influenced my view of a Heavenly Father. I never quite understood who God was and why He loved me until my visit to the New York Dream Center. I experienced what could only be described as a tidal wave of grace. I became a true follower of Christ. After returning home, I could not stop thinking about the amazing people whose lives were touched by God through outreach. I wanted to be a part of that. I looked into their Leadership Program. It is a ten month program where one serves the Harlem and Chelsea communities providing them with tangible needs (food, clothes, etc.) and then uses it as a bridge to meet their spiritual needs through Jesus Christ. During this time, one also attends college bible courses. It is an incredible opportunity and the total costs $8,000; this amount covers housing, food, and transportation. The deadline is October 1. I currently have two jobs and a team planning fundraising events to reach this amount… but I know I will need help. If this is something you feel God wants you to partner on, please give. If you have questions, email me at ShelbyGtoNYC@gmail.com. Lastly, I ask for your prayers for this fundraising effort and, most importantly, for the lost in New York City that they may know Christ.
