Dear Friends,

Fifty years ago, Lynn Ann and I took the first steps on a journey that we're still on today. It meant leaving our families and friends in our small, southeastern New Mexico town and moving 2,000 miles away to New Jersey to work with disadvantaged children. If all our support came in, we had $210/month to live on! We never looked back. In 1975, Lynn Ann and I, my sister, Dusty, and our brother-in-law, Bill, founded Aslan Youth Ministries. As we celebrate our 47th year, the rest . . . is history!

By God's gracious hand, we are still going strong today. Our mission - to provide relationship-based, life-transforming programs for urban, African American children -  has never drifted. 

On September 18, Aslan is hosting our 14th Annual Beauty & The Beach Run. It's one of two yearly fundraisers for our ministry, and we're praying for an outpouring of support this year. If all our Facebook friends give $10 each we will raise $6,000!!

Some of you might be able to give more, but please consider helping Aslan by sponsoring Lynn Ann and me as we do the 3-mile Beauty Walk.

Thank you for all your love, prayers & support! And everyone . . . please give. Aslan is one of the most unique organizations you will ever support. We bring people of all races together - the right way, and the only way that works!

Each year Aslan Youth Ministries host an all-women’s run called Beauty & The Beach Run™ to raise funds.  Last year, because of Covid-19, we hosted a Virtual Race open to both men and women.   There were so many people who wanted to do something substantial – something that makes a lasting difference – to bring people together.  As a result the virtual race option was very successful and we are bringing it back this year. 

We at Aslan recognize and celebrate our long history of service to African-American children in Monmouth County, NJ and families in Haiti.  What better time than now to help us serve Aslan children?  

And what easier way to do this than jogging or walking a few miles to raise critically needed funds?  Or you can select a team and make a donation.  We invite all our friends, family and churches who want to support our years of service and the many lives Aslan has touched.

Read about the amazing Jennifer Andiorio and her family who walked for Aslan last year!

Please remember. Aslan is God’s Love in Action. We don’t just talk about problems. Aslan is successful because, Love never fails (I Corinthians 13:8)! 

Take action now.
