Agape Fish Fund partners with O'Keefe, which provides tutoring and mentorship to low-income students in East Palo Alto. This year we'd like to enrich 12 of the students with field trips to see a nativity drama and to provide school supplies for them.
On Saturday, September 2, 2017, we took the kids to Willow Park for the morning. Everyone had a great time on the playground and hanging out.
Encouragement from Pastor Marcus Givens
Pastor Marcus Givens, Development Officer at Bayshore Christian Ministries, visited O'Keefe during the last week of September. He wanted to share this encouragement.
Please know that you are opening new vistas, encouraging our kids, and impacting their lives in ways you may not see for years, or until we're in heaven.
God bless you richly,
