ANGEL TREE 2017 HAMPER PROJECT

The Angel Tree is organized by Prison Fellowship Singapore (PFS). At the heart of Angel Tree is your gift to an inmate – an act of service that empowers him/her to reach out to family members. Hand-written letters with powerful messages of hope and reconciliation written by inmates to their families will be delivered along with the gift hampers. This reconnection of hearts not only brings hope and joy to children and youths with parents in prison, but also opens the door to forgiveness and the restoration of broken relationships between inmates and their loved ones. Please prayerfully consider how you can be a part of this opportunity to bless others. If you wish to give towards this project by cash or cheque (payable to “Grace Baptist Church Ltd”), please indicate “Angel Tree 2017 Hamper Project” on the offering envelope or back of the cheque. Closing date is today, 6 Aug.
