Stepping out in Faith

By Aaron Ziebarth, Executive Director


It is always good to hear from our donors and volunteers!  Recently, one of our volunteer’s sent us a letter that was very encouraging!  Here’s an excerpt of what she shared:

“Praise God!  God has provided the way to reach more and more students.  I enjoy beating our record number from a previous year (of Released Time).  We have four more students that are needed to join to beat last year’s record of 105 at Wrightsville!  God provided the way for the high school students to now attend CIA at Eastern York, Praise God!  He continues to provide listeners and a bus driver with a bus – for free, PRAISE GOD!  He provides and we need to take the step of faith in reaching out in His Name to invite adults to observe the program in hopes they will volunteer and invite students to observe in hopes they will be a part of this amazing program!”

It’s our desire to see Released Time continue to grow this year!  As many Released Time groups are planning for “Invite-A-Friend” days, it’s wonderful to hear a testimony such as this volunteer has shared, knowing that God will work through these events! 

Would you or someone you know want to observe for yourself how God is working in Released Time?  Do you know a child that could benefit from quality spiritual instruction and one-to-one mentoring?  Learn more about Released Time and how you or a child can get involved by going here.
