His purpose is to generate funds through the corporations within the church and to make jobs available for his members.

Smith looked at the plight of the elderly and the handicapped, in a land of p enty, living in sub standard housing, unwant ed, fearful of their lives and, yes, prisoners n their homes and said, “this is not right.” After many years of agonizing thoughts, plan ning, hard work, God's guiding hand and sustain ing power, Ground Break ing Ceremonies for the New Pilgrim Towers, a 123-unit housing complex designed for the elderly 1 and handicapped, was held on September 16,1979, at 4 p.m. On October 30, 1980, the complex was complet ed with the first tenants moving in on November 1, 1980.Truly, this is one of the highlights of his 30 years of being in the grips of God at New Pilgrim. • At an early age, pastor Smith, no doubt, said in the .Pastor of New Pilgrim words of Harry Beecher, “There Is not a heart but has its moments of long ing, yearning for some thing better, nobler, holier than it knows now."

Protect Your Skin From Winter’s Chill Your skin needs special care to keep it looking beauti ful every season of the year. And it needs extra pampering to protect it from winter weather, especially the ex tremes you experience as you move from the cold outside -into dry, overheated interiors. These unhealthy contrasts can result in unpleasant dry ness and the ashiness caused by dry cells on darker skin. Now, more than ever, be sure you take a few minutes every morning and night to take these four simple steps to lasting good looks. First, cleanse to remove makeup, grime, pollution, ex cess oil. Follow with a toner to refresh and stimulate your skin, and to remove the last traces of dirt and cleanser. Then, energize. This helps new cells reach the surface of your skin faster, helping your skin to repair itself from the ravages of winter weather. Finally, moisturize to protect your skin from the environ ment and to replenish your __skin’s moisture supply. If your skin dries out in winter weather, make these changes in your routine. Try a creamy rinse-off or tissue off cleanser instead of soap and water. Using a toner is still important. And be sure to energize with Avon’s Momentum Cell Energizing Formula. It’s essential! Lab oratory tests prove that skin not only looks younger, it actually feels and acts younger in as little as 14 days!
