Hi Everyone! welcome to the official Send a Friend website! glad you could join us.

We (Ruth Burn and Caitlin Jankiewicz) started Send a Friend  in spring of 2013, when we were 8th graders. at the time, we saw a problem, and wanted to help. the problem was, that many of the people who we had been with in school for a long time would not be able to afford Christian education any longer, and we wanted to do something to help. The idea started out small, but God blessed us richly, in ways we never could have imagined. We appreciate your support as we continue in this project.



In June 2014, we held a Work-Bee. A member of the community stepped up and offered to donate $1,000 to Send a Friend if we could get together a group of kids to clear some woods for him. With the help of Bible teachers from AA we got together a group of about 12 kids (who earned extra credit in Bible for participating). It was hard work, but we did have fun working together. Afterwards, we  were treated to ice cream as a reward for meeting our goal.

WALKATHONRuth and Caitlin

The walk-a-thon was a great success, quite a few people came and participated, and we had a lot of fun. Many generous people donated money to the fund, and the total amount raised was over $10,000, praise God! We are in the middle of preparing a presentation for PMC, to thank everyone that participated and donated, and to announce the total raised. Because of generous donations of the community, 10 students were able to go to Andrews Academy. These students would not have been able to go to AA otherwise, Praise God! 😀

Some more good news: The Adventist Retirees of Michiana voted for SAF to be their Mission project this coming year. They will be raising money for us, and helping provide opportunities for us to serve our community and raise money at the same time!

Please continue to pray for us. There are many more who would like to have a Christian education, but cannot, because of financial difficulties.

Thanks again!

  1. We contributed toward your second student in church yesterday, marked the tithe envelope as Send a Friend to AA. God bless you for what you are doing. Be praying as you circle the campus that God will do “a new thing” on the AU campus this year.

    God bless.

  2. I just put a check in the mail for Send a Friend. There is no better investment than investing in our children’s Christian education. When a child is dedicated in church, the minister asks the congregation if they will help in raising the child to love Jesus Christ. We all, of course, raise our hands. Here is a very practical way to help fulfill this pledge we have made.

  3. Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog
    article or vice-versa? My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel
    free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Terrific blog by the way!

  4. Unquestionably imagine that which you said.

    Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to take into accout
    of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while other folks consider concerns that they plainly don’t understand about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also outlined out the
    entire thing without having side effect , people
    could take a signal. Will probably be back to get
    more. Thank you
