When Rosie Blair created Penny Day she did it because she wanted to make Jesus famous....she wanted to start a fund to help build churches throughout the Western Ontario District.
Over the past almost 60 years, Penny Day has generated over 3 MILLION DOLLARS and built 1/3 of our churches in the WOD!!!
We MUST keep raising MONEY because there are so many who need JESUS....
THE NAME CHANGE !
In 2013 our government phased out the penny...so we knew we needed to make a change. We felt it was time to change the name...but to what? We prayed and talked about this for months. We thought about how because of Penny Day countless lives have been introduced to Jesus. We thought about how incredibly eternal Penny Day is...and that's when it came to us.....(insert drum roll here).....the new name for "PENNY DAY" is now....."ETERNAL CHANGE DAY"
WHERE HAS THE MONEY GONE?
