The Boys & Girls Club of Harlingen
Gerald & Hilda Gathright - Directors
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
Boys & Girls Clubs are a safe place to learn and grow – all while having fun. They are truly The Positive Place For Kids.
Guatemala - Ivan & Kim Tait
Ivan Tait was called to be a preacher in his teens and immediately began pouring his life and dreams into God’s purposes. Now more than 35 years later Ivan has traveled the world. He has spent his life building God’s Church through his preaching, holding international crusades, as well as building churches, orphanages and Bible schools in third world countries. He has been called a “spiritual surgeon” who uses the anesthesia of humor and laughter. Lives are saved, people are changed, delivered and incredible miracles follow Ivan Tait’s ministry. In recent years, his children have joined him and together they work to fulfill the vision that God initially called Ivan to those many years ago as a young man. Ivan’s ministry proves daily that with God nothing is too difficult. Jer. 32:17
