The thoughts of my learning to work a computer were intimidating. I did not feel that I wanted to learn something new at the age of 83. I refused the offer of a computer from my son and daughter-in-law, But one day she came in and said,"Here is your computer." So I felt obligated to try.

Now I am really enjoying it. I never liked to write letters, but now it is easy to type a short email to friends and family--even if it is just a line or two.

I also have fun playing games, such as Hearts, Spades and Canasta. This helps to keep my mind sharp and is very relaxing. As you can see, I still make mistakes, maybe one day I will learn how to correct them. There are many other interesting things to learn --- maybe someday!

The reports showed that senior citizens in average have only 10 - 20 happy days (Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year , ..etc.) per year and they spend majority of day time by looking outside the window doing nothing . . . . ! 

There is a better way to enrich the daily life and make many more happy days (say 100+ days) for the senior citizens by helping them using Email.  

There is no more need to drive to the postal office, no more need to wait in the line and no postage needed. Senior citizens can read/send emails any time, day or night. One simple email can be broadcasted to many friends and relatives without cost. In turn, many replied emails with articles, photos, voices, . .etc. can be received over time. Imagine that a lonely and sick senior who would be very happy if he/she receives an email with photo from grandchildren out of town/state on a cold winter night. 

Your love and support can help making seniors happy . Please to join and pass the Newsletter to your friends and relatives. Every effort counts, our seniors could not wait too long ! Please contact ACER PROGRAM. 

.Thank You & God Bless

What God, Can do with 57 Cents
Retold by Rev McKinney. 

~57 Cents~
A sobbing little girl stood near a small church from which she had been turned away because it "was too crowded." "I can't go to Sunday School," she sobbed to the pastor as he walked by.

Seeing her shabby, unkempt appearance, the pastor guessed the reason and, taking her by the hand, took her inside and found a place for her in the Sunday school class. The child was so happy that they found room for her, that she went to bed that night thinking of the children who have no place to worship Jesus.

Some two years later, this child lay dead in one of the poor tenement buildings and the parents called for the kindhearted pastor, who had befriended their daughter, to handle the final arrangements.

As her poor little body was being moved, a worn and crumpled purse was found which seemed to have been rummaged from some trash dump. Inside
was found 57! cents and a note scribbled in childish handwriting which read, "This is to help build the little church bigger so more children can go to Sunday School. For two years she had saved for this offering
of love.

When the pastor tearfully read that note, he knew instantly what he would do. Carrying this note and the cracked, red pocketbook to the pulpit, he told the story of her unselfish love and devotion.

He challenged his deacons to get busy and raise enough money for the larger building.

But the story does not end there!

A newspaper learned of the story and published it. It was read by a Realtor who offered them a parcel of land worth many thousands. When told that the church could not pay so much, he offered it for 57 cents.

Church members made large donations. Checks came from far and wide.
Within five years the little girl's gift had increased to $250,000.00--a huge sum for that time (near the! turn of the century). Her unselfish love had paid large dividend.

When you are in the city of Philadelphia, look up Temple Baptist Church, with a seating capacity of 3,300 and Temple University, where hundreds of
students are trained.

Have a look, too, at the Good Samaritan Hospital and at a Sunday School building which houses hundreds of Sunday Schoolers, so that no child in the area will ever need to be left outside during Sunday school time.

In one of the rooms of this building may be seen the picture of the sweet face of the little girl whose 57 cents, so sacrificially saved,
made such remarkable history. Alongside of it is a portrait of her kind pastor, Dr. Russel H. Conwell, author of the book, "Acres of Diamonds"

A true story, which goes to show WHAT GOD, CAN DO WITH 57 cents.

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive.
There is no cost but a lot of reward.

St. Theresa Prayer
May today there be peace within
May you trust your highest power that you are exactly where you are
meant to be....
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love
that has been given to you....
May you be content knowing you are a child of God.... Let this presence
settle into our bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance,
It is there for each and every one of you....
