GAP MINISTRIES
June 10, 2012

Where to start? Pam and Greg started with a seed of "How can we help kids? They mixed that with lots of love and passion to see hurting kids feel like a family. Now there are so many SPLASH houses and other ministries in Tucson it is mind boggling. I am a teacher in Tucson - I taught at one of the schools where GAP did BACKPACKS for SCHOOLS! The delight on the kids faces as they got their own beautiful, new backpack was priceless. More priceless snapshots in my mind were seeing the delight on foster children's faces at birthday celebrations and family vacations, family movie night, and playing at the pool and....oh so many more - as the underserved foster kids who live at SPLASH Houses got their first taste of family life that was joyful and full of love. I will never forget a child, with tears in her eyes telling me "I have never celebrated my birthday - is that cake mine? Are those presents mine? Is that all for me? " She was 10 that year. Thanks GAP MInistries for touching so many lives!
