Article on Journey Christian Church and our Afghanistan Project

February 1, 2010 — Leave a comment

The Greeley Tribune ran a nice story on Journey Christian Church and our efforts to collect clothes for children in Afghanistan..

I love being a part of this church!

Here’s an excerpt:

Three beautiful, brown-eyed girls are walking through the city in a bad part of Afghanistan. Their clothing is minimal and the sight breaks the heart of a U.S. soldier who pulls out the only dollar he has and gives it to the girls. An American dollar to them is like gold.

Hearing numerous stories like this one prompted Josh Eldridge to reach out to the Journey Christian Church in Greeley. On Dec. 2, Eldridge, a Greeley resident now serving in Afghanistan, contacted Lead Minister Arron Chambers, voicing concern about the well-being of children where he’s stationed and asking for help. Chambers was inspired and on Dec. 6 asked the members of the church to donate clothes for the cause.

On Jan. 11, 70 boxes containing $7,000 worth of new and used winter clothing were shipped from Greeley to Afghanistan.
