Please take time to read our full annual appeal …. HM 2014 Christmas Appeal
Someone said, “We reflect God’s nature when we care for the needy.”
Over the years, as June and I have studied God’s Word, we have seen our Heavenly Father’s concern for the poor. We believe that we belong to a compassionate Kingdom, one wide enough to take in all the lost, oppressed, exhausted, hungry, and homeless.
The Bible gives us a picture of our Heavenly Father who cares about the condition of the poor. We read, “He (God) will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death.” Ps. 72:12–13
We have learned from the Bible that God provides for the poor (Ps. 68:10), delivers the poor (Ps. 72:12), secures justice for the poor (Ps. 140:12), hears the poor (Job 34:28), shows no partiality against the poor (Job 34:19), protects the poor (Ps. 12:5), will not forsake the poor (Is. 41:17), and gives food to the poor (Ps. 146:7).
So, this is the Kingdom that June and I, along with each of you belong. We are called to be ambassadors of God, and as such, we are called to help and walk alongside the poor.
For us, the idea of compassion for the poor is central to our faith. It is not complicated or hard to understand. It is simple. God and His Son Jesus, cared about the poor and so do we.
Thank you for walking with us. For partnering with us as we serve the least, the lonely and the lost through a place called: Hope Mission
