Spokane County has about
475 Christian congregations
- People are in need 365 days a year, not just during the holidays.
- Government programs do not make a difference in making people better, because they cannot offer relationships. Changing people's behavior is done through relationships (a parent, relative, teacher, minister, friend, neighbor), because those who care about us cause us to want to develop our capacities.
A speaker at a State prison asked 100's of prison inmates,
"What was it that brought you here as inmates of this penitentiary? I am frequently a speaker at various gatherings of young people and at graduation exercises, and I would like you to tell me so that I can warn them." Almost without exception, they answered,
"We are here in the state penitentiary because there came a time in our lives when we were made to feel that nobody cared what happened to us." Adam S. Bennion (addressing Utah State Penitentiary inmates)
- When seeking to help those in need, ask the bishop, pastor or minister of a local church who in their congregation needs help.
