When I first met Rev. Greg & Dr. Pj Seals, joining the ministry had not crossed my mind. They're are amazing people. Their characters radiates this geinuine love and energy. You can't fake something like that. They really care for others and enjoy helping any way they can. When I was asked to become a board memeber, how could I say no? I believe we all have a desire to be part of something bigger than ourselves, to make a difference, and be part of a greater good. Amen.

I have been having a hard time making ends meat, just needed a few things and remembered someone telling me to try GPS. Well sometimes I feel ashamed when I have to ask for help I would like to manage on my own but times are getting harder. I have been depressed lately and my volunteer job I have now I feel like they don't need me as much any more and I am not able to stand for more than about 10 minutes without severe pain in my legs. When meeting this awesome group of women and finding out what there mission is all about which is serving God. I put on my application I would be more than happy to volunteer some time to them. On Friday I met with JP this women is totally awesome she made me feel so much wanted and needed that I felt like God was talking to her and me. I begin on Tuesday June 24th and I am so excited that I will be helping them and serving God myself what more could anyone ask for?

The people were very compassionate to my needs,i felt very welcomed,i did not feel shame for asking for help nor was i judged because of my personal crisis. Unlike most community resources,GPS Ministries provides a job skills program,spiritual counseling/studies,snack pack program for children,and assistane with food,toiletries ect...I will be volunteering in the future. Thank you GPS Ministries for all that you do here in Quincy,IL. And again, thank you for helping me.....May God continue to show favor to you & you're mission....GODS PEOPLE SERVING.

GPS Ministries is a very welcoming safe haven in the area. It had a major role in me becoming free from addiction as well as helping me in my walk with Christ, P.J. is a lovely woman with a great heart and she does anything she can to help others. i have been to her house and was baptized in her swimming pool!

The Gps Ministry, break barriers, bureancrasy and just goes straight on to bless and help you in need..I needed help to replace tires on my vehicle and didnt have no funds , i walked in the Gps ministry, they welcomed me with a smile , made me feel comfortable, and finally i felt like God works in miraculous ways..Dr PJ, shared the word of God, and we chatted about several things in life..I told her how i did donate money off my check every 2 weeks to United way, and cloths to salvation army..So she called around and talked to all other agencies, to pool together some resources and pay for my tires.It didnt turn out as expected, there was lots of bureacrasy, and so she decided, God doesnt need me walk, while i donated so much to same agencies while i was working..And so she footed the entire bill, which the tire shop had given us a discount already..Blessings in disguise..I will commit my time, soul and resources in the future to Gps ministry and those agencies that have blessed my family needs...Thank you so much Dr PJ, and the Gps ministry as a whole..Wish you Gods Speed...Bosco

I am bishop George Simiyu Wandabwa of Christ The Living Testimony in Kenya. Over the years GPS ministries has been a blessed partner in my ministry. They have partnered with my ministry in providing legitimate needs to the widows, needy children and the orphans. They sponsored me to go and preach the good news in Rwanda among other missions. They have been helping the widows that our ministry has been identifying by buying them sheep as a source of livelihood( she has bought ten sheep for widows and she hopes help 30 more widows with sixty sheep), Buying relief food for people that our ministry has been identifying as needy in the society. God bless DR. PJ and GPS Ministry for their big heart. More information on http://christliving.webs.com/

I am Hilary of Christ The Living Testimony(http://christliving.webs.com/ ) Kenya. I prouDly refer to GPS Ministries INC under the able leadership of DR. PJ Seals as a hope restoring organization. After identifying some widows from our locality in Bungoma- Kenya, We shared the dis-heartening story of these poor widows with GPS Ministries INC, They were so touched and joined us in prayers for God's hand. God gave Dr. PJ a great vision on how to help these widows. She started a sheep project for them. Now the project has bought ten sheep for the widows. The widows are so happy and so hopeful in life after being hopeless for many years, One of then confessed that DR. PJ was her angel of hope. Thanks be to God.

My name is Walter and I would like to thank GPS ministries for showing me the true heart of God in my time of need. They are truly doing the work of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ by simply doing the greatest miracle of all and that is showing the lost of the world and those in need LOVE. I was impressed not by what i seen but by what was discerned and felt and that is real love and concern and that is the very essence of who and what God is. I encourage those that can to partner with them because the scripture says that where 2 0r 3 are gathered in his name touching and agreeing and asking anything in Jesus name he would be in the midst. So any support of any kind wether donating food items, time, or even more so love would put you in covenant with them to fulfill the calling for their ministry and allow you to be a minister to people in need and crisis as well. I can sum up GPS ministries in one Godly statement. LOVE.
