Teen Challenge SA relies heavily on donations within the church and the community. Please consider supporting us today for our summer 2022–23 appeal. All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible.

According to reliable sources, the most stolen item from Christian bookshops is WWJD (what would Jesus do?) bracelets! Secondly, the most stolen book in the world is the Bible. Seriously, what are people thinking?

I am writing today to ask you to consider WWJHYD (what would Jesus have you do?) when it comes to supporting Teen Challenge SA during this Christmas season.

While most of us are celebrating and enjoying the festive season, for Teen Challenge SA, it is one of the busiest periods because people who are homeless, desperate and addicted to drugs and alcohol have nowhere to turn because many places simply shut down.

The Christmas period is also a time when donations dry up. Every year, it is like a perfect storm of increased demand and reduced resources. Teen Challenge SA knows that Jesus wants us to continue ministering to people. People like Jesse, who said:

To have all of the trauma that has kept me in addiction for 15 years washed clean by the blood of Jesus brings me to tears. Thank you, Jesus Christ, Father and Holy Spirit – you have saved my life.

Today, you have the opportunity to consider, ‘What would Jesus have me do?’ You could give the best Christmas present ever by helping Teen Challenge SA restore broken lives – people like Jesse, who have lost so much through drugs, alcohol and self-harm, and people born into the wrong circumstances at the wrong time. 

… And your gift will help to give somebody’s life back to them!

One day, all of us will stand before God, and he will ask one question: ‘What did you do with what I gave you?’ 

Please consider donating today.

May God bless you in every way possible over this Christmas season.

Graham Ross
