Grant Winners for 2014

We are so excited by what God has shown us through the passionate people we met through this year’s ministries. Wasn’t it an amazing journey?IMG_1612

Our local grant went to the amazing San Diego Rescue Mission! Most of us had never been to this hospital-turned-homeless shelter in city center San Diego. This non-profit, average gift of $35, runs a tight, but respectful and loving ship. We replaced their old dryers with new ones (yay! we know the impact that can have!), and also helped with some computer stuff. (This room is where the mothers and children sleep.)

Our international grant went to Ellilta International, or EWAR for short, a ministry in Ethiopia rescuing trafficked women and girls. We funded, in part, a skills/job training program that would allow these women to leave the sex trade and be able to support themselves and their families. EWAR has witnessed over 1000 women–a 90% success rate–go on to lead a life free of prostitution.

In case you felt led to donate to any of these ministries above the SEEDS Grant, below are addresses for sending a check. (Their web sites that were listed in the voting materials will also accept donations using credit cards, but a check doesn’t give any money to the CC companies.)
