February: more than one
computer given away per day
March 20: new record of nine computers given away in a
single day
317 since ministry inception
71 for 2014 so far
We’re on pace to give away 312 computers in a single year!


Ames’ Drive Ministry recipients are receiving computers with the com-mitment to pay the gift forward. They hear the Gospel and receive counsel-ing during the interview process. References are checked and relation-ships are formed, sometimes with other churches.
Recent donations have helped empower a single mom, Anna, (pictured above) to go back to college; and the Emmaus House, (pictured left) to help young women get back on their feet, fill out job resumes, and find work. One computer has empowered a member of Old Town Christian Outreach to start a small business (new BBQ restaurant on Gratiot). An-other receiving a new computer made a commitment to start going to Hopevale Church as a result of our counseling session.
We see God doing amazing things at Ames, but there is even more that God is doing that many of us never even see! Be proud and encouraged that Ames really has a kingdom view of Saginaw and the world. It’s not about us, but about obeying God and furthering His kingdom! To God be the glory!


We received a phone call from New Life Baptist Church on Janes St. on Saginaw’s East side thanking us for donating a bike to one of their parishioners. They said it has completely changed his life. He has been able to hold down a job for the first time in a long time, has “paid it forward” by getting extremely involved at their church, and has even seen healing and freedom over a lifestyle sin that our Ride team was able to dis-cuss and pray about during the interview process for the bike. God is great! He is most definitely on His throne!


Pictured here is software engineer, Davey, who has chosen Ames as his new home church for the next five to six months while his job has him temporarily placed in Saginaw. He is origi-nally from St. Louis, MO. He recently took some time to show members of the Drive staff some of the programming that he gets to do professionally and share with them what it takes to be a software engineer. Please say ‘hi’ to Davey when you see him at the second service!
