Congratulations to CARE sidewalk counselor Cheryl and her husband, Jamie, on
the birth of their daughter Hannah on 12/15/2000. Hannah is their first-born.. Both mother and baby are healthy and
well. We are very happy for Cheryl and
her husband, Jamie. Because Cheryl and
Jamie have shown concern for other families by participating in the CARE
ministry, God has rewarded them with a family of their own. Soon, God willing, Cheryl will be back on
the sidewalk with me, and she plans to bring Hannah with her.

VISION AND COMMITMENT
