A letter from AMY MURPHY


DIRECTOR OF FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE MINISTRIES


THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE! WE STRIVE TO PROVIDE A SAFE AND LOVING ENVIRONMENT FOR ALL OF THE CHILDREN IN OUR CARE AS WELL AS PREPARE THEM FOR KINDERGARTEN. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY LEARN ABOUT THE LOVE OF GOD! I HAVE HAD THE PRIVILEGE TO WATCH SEVERAL CHILDREN GROW FROM INFANCY TO SCHOOL AGE. WHEN THESE CHILDREN LEAVE OUR PROGRAM FOR THE “BIG SCHOOL” THEY ARE SENT WITH EXTRA PRAYERS AND A FEW TEARS FROM US. THESE CHILDREN TRULY BECOME LIKE PART OF OUR FAMILY! I AM BLESSED TO BE A PART OF FRIENDSHIP CIRCLE MINISTRIES!


ANYONE WHO WELCOMES A LITTLE CHILD LIKE THIS ON MY BEHALF WELCOMES ME, AND ANYONE WHO WELCOMES ME WELCOMES NO ONLY ME BUT ALSO MY FATHER WHO SENT ME.
