Hey you, yes, You: Thanks for supporting the Read to Lead Summer Academy with prayers, donations, social media shares, and food donations. Your support is vital. This week alone, the kids got to work on a mural with Mark Making that will go on the Bethlehem Center building, learn chess, receive counseling, worship, work on reading and math comprehension, and so much more. The kids are "flexin'" because they know they're getting stronger every day. Thanks again! The Bethlehem Center

Greetings everyone!! It's day 1 of the V-Team orientation and the summer interns are already learning a lot. TJ Johnson from Front Porch Alliance talked to them about key issues ranging from gangs to the importance of team work. Most of our interns this summer come from Howard High School, but we have several from other schools. They have been chosen because they are already exemplifying character and leadership. Your financial support made this possible! Thank you for giving the summer interns access to intensive character and leadership training, work experience, the opportunity to be mentors, and the life-changing power of the Gospel.

They are ALL people of integrity who care about peoples deepest needs, and they made us laugh. Please like this status to help us thank Wadel Media and Williams Web. Thanks everyone! The Beth Center
