Summer Praise concert to support Sister2Sister Outreach Ministry BY NIKKI BALDWIN FOR THE CHRONICLE The first Summer Praise ben efit concert will be at the First Presbyterian Church Worship Center from 2 to 5 p.m. at 200 N. Cherry St. on Saturday, July 25, to support the Sister2Sister (S2S) International Outreach Ministry Inc. Admission to the concert is free and will consist of collec tions for love offerings. The proceeds from the con cert will go toward the construc tion of the S2S children's home and school in Ngong, Kenya. The S2S board members in Kenya and Purity Ruchugo will be over the construction of the home and scnooi in ivenya. The concert will consist of dance troupes, mime troupes, spoken word and singers such as Alfred Clemonts. The treasurer of S2S, Martha Alberton, and the board members of S2S will manage the proceeds raised from the concert. The concert idea was formed when Alfred Clements walked into Umoja store, which is owned by Purity Ruchugo, founder of S2S. Ruchugo, who had just attended Clements' spring concert, was hoping to use his singing talent to help raise money for the children in Kenya. The chance encounter led to Clements agreeing to the idea upon hearing it. Clements, who is an educator, said his motivation for wanting to participate in this concert was sparked by his passion for ministry, as well as the passion to start his own visions and to be apart of "this great cause." Clements believes in uplifting and inspiring others with the gift he has been blessed with. Purity Ruchugo, who was bom and raised in Kenya, started the Sister2Sister International Outreach Ministry Inc. Ruchugo, when asked why she started S2S, said she wanted to be a voice to the voiceless and raise awareness of the needs of women and children. "HIV/AIDS robbed Africa with over a generation of young men and women. This left many children with out parents. There are no programs to help empower women and children, so through ministry we are changing lives by educating orphans and pro viding feeding programs," Ruchugo said. Ruchugo, who was raised by her widowed mother after her father died when she was 4 years old, said she wanted to reach out and help those in need. Ruchugo believes if you help a women, then you can help the com munity, including the children as well. The S2S headquarters is in Winston-Salem in the Umoja store, for it is a part of the ministry. S2S is a 501(cX3) nonprofit organization. For more information about the benefit concert, contact Alfred Clements at 336-624-5577.

Understand that honor ing God is not a show but heartfelt commitment ? Ask for the strength to daily represent God in our lives "! Mildred Peppers Sunday School Lesson ?ill God wouldn't judge His own! His final cycle opens with the Lord presenting His case against Israel (Judah). Lesson: This cycle is set in a courtroom where God issues His complaints against Israel's leaders. He calls the moun tains, which were there when the covenant was made, to be His witnesses. God reminds them of His graciousness from 1 a\ ? /?u tecii\ Background: Micah gave his first two cycles of judg ment and restoration in chapters 1-2 and 3-5. Each time the leaders were indicted for corruption, injustice, greed and immorality. The leaders - politicians, judges, priests, and false prophets - were more interested in their own well being while ignoring/exploiting the masses. Micah declared God's words to a stiff-necked people who were and Gilgal (Joshua 4:19-5). Over and over His compas sion delivers them from their enemies.
