One Act To Overwhelm Hopelessness

When the darkness of abject poverty engulfs a place, the devil takes over. But in the middle of desperation, you can intervene.

One act, one decision in Jesus’ name, is all it takes to allow hope to overwhelm the darkness.

See for yourself.

    This whole video was riveting, but how my breath was taken away when they talked about how they were sponsored by teenagers!

    Oh God, teach us all to give up our little comforts and vain desires for that which will last forever.

    “To live simply so others may simply live.”

    “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he can never lose.”

    Michelle, Jimmy, Tony, and Richmond: How glorious is the Living Christ in you!

    May He continue to protect you from the evil one and multiply the fruitfulness of your lives.

    Press on with hope!
