Good Ground Communications – Eric Walker

Good Ground Communications is a not-for-profit Operating Project of the Joy to the World Foundation. The vision of GGC is to help spread of the love and message of Jesus Christ all around the world. This includes building up believers both nationally and internationally through the practical teaching of God’s Word. In addition, GGC is passionately involved in sharing the love and message of Jesus Christ with those who have not heard, specifically to those who live in the countries of the 10/40 Window. In recent years GGC has sponsored outreaches in Africa, Turkey and China. I am returning to China for 6 weeks this summer to teach English. I will be sharing the love and message of Jesus in Anshan, China, about 150 miles from the border of North Korea.

Bread of Life at Valley Covenant Church in Stillman Valley

Bread of Life Ministry was started in 1999 by members of Valley Covenant Church who were grateful for God’s blessings in the lives of their families and chose to share these blessings with their community. The purpose of Bread of Life is to offer care and concern for those in need in our region by giving help to all who come to our distributions on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. We provide hot meals; groceries, canned and boxed foods, frozen foods and meats, and personal care items; and books and reading material. We provide a welcoming atmosphere to all who come through our doors and distribute food to anyone in need. We encourage those we serve toward faith in Jesus Christ through gentle conversation, but we do not require a faith commitment of those we serve.
