We just added a great new way for you to give back to New Life Community Health Center on iGive!
For the next month we are giving you the opportunity to participate in SaySo for Good surveys where every completed survey results in a $1 donation made to your charity.
On top of the survey donation that you will generate for New Life Community Health Center, SaySo for Good will also donate one meal to their non-profit partner Action Against Hunger. How great is that?
SaySo for Good surveys do not require you to spend any money. Just spend a little bit of your time giving your opinion on things that are related to you! It takes on average 15 minutes to complete a SaySo for Good survey.
You might not complete a survey on every attempt but there are new survey opportunities available every day so don't dismay if you fail, you can always try again later! Donations will be credited within one month of survey completion.
Get started here!

As we ready for the clinic to open up as a full-time primary care center with a medical staff, we're also opening ourselves up in greater capacities to the immigrant community here in New York.
On August 27th, we helped the Indonesian consulate in New York City with a first-aid station as the Indonesian community celebrated its own national independence. Our actual operational title: We administered "Health, Sanitation and Security" for Perwakrin, an Indonesian church association here in the city. We're not sure how much of the latter two we did...but we sure did provide health services in the way of checks for people who felt ill...and there were several people weakened by the heat or dehydrated, or in one case, extremely hyperglycemic on their blood sugar readings.
The day was exceptionally enjoyable outside the consulate's operation on E. 68th St. in Manhattan. The consulate turned what is normally a drop-in day at its consulate for visitors wanting to express congratulations, into a full-fledged street fair with booths celebrating local cuisines from different regions in the country, and with cultural performances. About 5,000 people came to enjoy the festivities, and this now looks to be a permanent fixture. The New York Times said this was one of the 5 best free things in the city to attend that day.
The actual day for Indonesia's independence is August 17th, 1945 when Indonesia was granted independence from the Netherlands, literally within days of World War II ending in the Pacific Theatre.
In New York, there are somewhere around 11,000 Indonesians, and approximately 40 churches that represent the Indonesian Christian community. In the past, we've had a steady stream of Indonesians accessing medical services when we were a free clinic. We're recognizing a greater need to be pro-active in communicating to ethnic communities about the clinic's soon-to-be medical services that can give greater care, especially to those without medical insurance.
Please pray that we build the right relationships with the communities here in Queens and elsewhere around the city as we become a more full-care provider. Some immigrants understand western ways of feeling like they'll be taken care of...and some unfortunately don't, based on a variety of factors. So we need your prayer to overcome economic and cultural objections to health care access and ensure that they understand that Jesus is 'free', and provides freely.
