A still, small voice

Teen Challenge SA relies heavily on donations within the church and the community. Please consider supporting us today for our spring 2021 appeal. All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible. Donate here.

Did you know you are exposed to between 6,000 to 10,000 advertisements and media messages every day? Among all that clutter, I hope you will consider reading this article about a vital request from Teen Challenge SA.

With all this clutter and other mega issues happening globally right now, it is easy for God to be buried in all the noise. He is just a still, small voice! It is also too easy to be distracted and wander from the right path. James 5:19 says, ‘My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins’.

Today, you have the opportunity to help Teen Challenge SA help people who have wandered a long way from the truth. As Leith (who was close to death) says in this month’s newsletter:

I was offered a bed at Teen Challenge SA. I have been able to rest substance-free and renew my relationship with our Lord. Now, as I come to the end of the program, I find I have a clear head. I have focus; I have dreams. And I have hope for a new future walking with our Lord.

You may not be aware, but every occupied bed at Teen Challenge SA costs on average $50,000 per annum. Clearly, Leith – and others like him – cannot fund their rehabilitation.

Demand for Teen Challenge SA is increasing due to the stress and anxiety levels in the community, and more than ever before, your financial support is actually saving lives. Maybe you could fund a day ($136), a week ($961) or even a month ($4,166). Every donation helps!

Whatever you can do to help Leith will have eternal consequences.
