Dear Church Family,
In the midst of hardship, it is easy to become solely focused on our personal struggles. Philippians 2:4 says, “Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” The gospel work of Jesus enables us to look beyond our own struggles and look after the needs and interests of others.
As a church we have done that several times during this Pandemic. We have done things for working poor through the Kearney Center; and helped support moms and unborn children through A Women’s Pregnancy Center. I want us to consider helping another needy group. India has a population over 1.2 billion, and one third of all of the world’s poor live in India. Around 67% of India’s population live below the poverty line of less than $2 a day. What is life like for the people of India during the Coronavirus?
One missionary in India works with women and children in poverty, working with the poorest of the poor to provide education and everyday needs. You can check out their webpage here. For the next few weeks, we will be taking an additional offering to support this work in India in the midst of the pandemic. The funds we give will go towards meeting the needs of the women and children they work with. You can give by going to this form and giving to Tabitha’s Heart in the pulldown menu.
God has not stopped His mission of pursuing every man, woman, and child in every nation and generation with His good news. This is one small way that we can continue to be a part of what He is doing around the world. Thank you church!
For His Name Sake,
