This weekend I attended an urban ministry conference in Chester, PA. (close to Philly)
Here are some pictures from Highland Gardens in Chester.
Some kids playing b-ball. Only 21 % of the families in Chester consist of a husband and wife living together. 32% are single mothers and the rest are classified as ‘non-families’… not sure what that means.
The ministry, World Impact is doing some good work in this area. The need is huge. It is the missionfield on our doorstep. You can check them out here: http://www.worldimpact.org/
