CHAIN OF LOVE
Chain of Love is a foster care program in Brazil, started by NAB missionaries Ken & Jerilyn Bayer. Children and teens are matched with foster families who raise them through to adulthood at age 21 years. You can support this ministry by bringing clean, empty drink can donations to the big blue "Chain of Love" bin by the gym entrance.
First Gift began when one of our Bethany ladies delivered her baby in the lockdown ward because all of the regular hospital beds were full, and got to know some of the other new mothers during her stay. Fast forward to 2016 and this ministry seeks to serve at-risk or drug-addicted mothers and help them get to know Jesus by visiting them in the hospital and giving them "starter packs" of practical gifts for both them and their babies.
