To the Child Advocates, Community Leaders, and Potential Sponsors:

We are excited about the opportunity to celebrate 16 years of service to children and youth throughout the country, and more specifically, right here in Newton County, Covington, Georgia for the past 3 years.  On June 17th, 1993, a Save the Children’s Youth Crusade was held on the lawn of the Mason Temple Institutional Church of God In Christ, in Kansas City, Kansas, in response to a call to rescue the children who were being suspended from school, and cast into the streets, as if they no longer existed.  In response to an ordained assignment, we decided to erect a classroom in the streets, in search for those that were lost both, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  
To our surprise, within a short period of time, one by one those who were caught in the crossfire of gang banging, drive-by shootings, increased juvenile crime, the erection of multiple juvenile detention centers, and the loss of many young lives, begin to show up at our building.  Before long, we begin to realize that we had been fortunate enough to sow into the lives of approximately 573 school age children and youth.  
One thing led to another, and we graduated from offering just a Christmas Party for foster, needy, and homeless children, to a summer camp program, an alternative school program, a week of spring break activities, and eventually, a year-round program, that also focused on families of missing persons and runaway youth.  For 10 years, our mission was to go out into the highways and by-ways and search for those that were lost, and lead them back home, by way of showing them love, and doing whatever was necessary to keep a smile on every child’s face. 
Upon relocating back to Georgia, after being away for approximately 13 years, and thinking that we were coming back to a place to start a new life, my daughter and I found ourselves back in the same position of responding to the needs of the financially challenged youth, and going out to the streets of Atlanta, in search of a 14 year old female who had run away from home.  Within 48 hours, we were able to celebrate the safe return of one of His lost sheep, and from that time up to this unique moment, we have continued to complete the assignment we were called to perform.  We want to invite you to join us this year, by allowing your youth who have been making a difference in our community, to celebrate through praise dancing, singing, shouting, and performing in any positive capacity, to be a part of this grand occasion.  
All you have to do is contact Ms. Lillian Y. Bittaye, Directress, by way of email at letthechildrenlive@yahoo.com, or by phone at 770-572-8995, to confirm that you do have some youth who would like to participate.  We would love to have the opportunity to highlight their accomplishments as well.  You may also want to consider sponsoring a child for just $16.00 per week, for a 5-week summer camp program.  Just go to our website at www.letthechildrenlive.net, click on the PayPal button, to make your donation.  We thank you in advance, and look forward to receiving your correspondence no later than June 12, 2009.  This is our way of saying “Thank You” for allowing a chosen child, to sow into the lives of many of your children!

I was hoping that in the spirit of Christmas, people would help me and some others at my store. Oliver Palmer is a 10 year old boy from Waterloo that has an inoperable brain tumor and not much time left. All he wants for Christmas is to see how many Christmas cards he can get. Please join me and my co-workers and send him a card. His address is:

Oliver Palmer 417 Oak Lawn Ave. Waterloo, IA 50701

There is so much good that can be done out there and this kind of grousing is the best you got? Come help me pass out some sandwhiches, or come up with something of your own. MIKE

I have been one of your loyal fams for how many year Larry Moore has been on. I followed his cancer an admired him daily. It recently brought me to a point of frustration watching this last bastion fall. This station has been reducted to domination and sensationalization of Kansas weather! You would think you were reporting something of the quality of Newtown. Kansas weather doesn't need to comsume the airway. It is ridiculous to cut out Dr. Oz when you are already reporting 3- 5 times a day and mostly repetitiously. You need to rethink. It is bad enough we are stuck in it an then have it reported over and over again while cutting out some of the only quality tv we have to overcome cabin fever!
