I ask you to please pray for an event coming up on July 27th. Our Children’s Gift Ministry Team will be traveling from San Pedro Sula, Honduras to the capital city of Tegucigalpa to distribute personal protection equipment kits to doctors and nurses on the front line of COVID-19 at two hospitals. They are in serious need of these items and encouragement.
These doctors and nurses serve out of love for their fellow countrymen and are risking their lives for the sake of others. In their own words: “This protective equipment helps us serve the people who come to our hospitals more safely, so that we don’t spread the disease to other patients, get infected ourselves, or take it home to our families.” There will be 130 bio security kits divided evenly between the two hospitals.
This will be the second such distribution in recent months and, as always, people's lives will be touched through the dissemination of World Missionary Press Scripture booklets.
With a band of young criminals, Barto began robbing churches! During one robbery he saw a backpack and took it along. In it, he found a Bible with some literature. As he read and reread The Way to God, a Scripture booklet that had been tucked in the Bible, confusing emotions filled his heart. He felt hope, but also a deep sense of guilt pressed on his heart for things he had done. With a sense of urgency, he called the phone number inside the Bible and found someone who tenderly led him to faith in Christ.
A Beautiful Story From Africa
By her own testimony, 36-year-old Claudette lived a drug-controlled life of debauchery and delinquency. Unmarried, and with two children to care for, she felt friendless and needy. One day visitors came to her African village. They told her about Jesus and gave her a Scripture booklet. As Claudette realized that only Jesus could forgive her sins and give her His salvation, she received Him as her Savior, deciding to let Him guide her life. Now she says, “I am glad that The Way to God booklet is helping me in my relationship with Christ.”
This is from Street Level Ministry in the Twin Cities, Minnesota (Minneapolis and Saint Paul). WMP provides Scripture booklets and the Bible Study of John for this group. They work with street people, university students, etc. Scott C., our contact, was saved out of the drug culture of the 60’s and has a burden for young people.
A local ministry outreach called Love Twin Cities along with City View Church, just blocks away from some destruction that occurred in Minneapolis, along with several other groups have been participating almost non-stop in ministering and baptizing people amongst the ruins.
Many of those who volunteer or have partnered with Street Level were fortunate to be part of a great movement of God! And it continues as we see from daily Facebook videos showing people professing faith in Christ along with mass prayer and racial reconciliation events led by the Spirit of God in the Name of Jesus.
There is much to hope for with God calling the broken and wounded to Himself!
Forgiveness, healing, and reconciliation are MAJOR themes of the Gospel! The world has desperately been in need of those things ever since the beginning; and now is no different.
