"Oh, how I love Jesus. Oh, how I love Jesus. Oh, how I love Jesus, because He first loved me..."
Luke 10:27 says, "And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself." Love thy neighbor...we often think of February as the month to show others how much we care for them. As Christians, we are commanded to love our neighbor, everyday we should look for ways to love others as Jesus loves them. John 13:34-35 says, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another." Our love and compassion for others show a lost world that we belong to Christ. What a privilege to be Christs' disciple!
On our way home from the mission trip, Steve and I found an area in South Texas that suffered much devastation from Hurricane Harvey. This town sustained winds of 140mph continually for 2 hours. 95% of the buildings and homes in this town were destroyed or damaged. Many families left their homes behind, many businesses closed. Here it is 6 months after the storm and there are still tarps being used for roofs, windows and doors boarded up, debris and household furnishings piled up on the streets. It is hard to describe to you the devastation but our hearts broke for the people there, trying to rebuild their lives.
We felt the Lord leading us to help this town in South Texas so a few days after we arrived home we loaded the van again with blankets, mission bags and barrels of supplies and Steve, along with our son Steven, headed back to Texas. We found a local ministry and school that are working to help the community rebuild. We unloaded our supplies, gave some money to the fund to help those in the community in need and also went to a few homes to meet some people in the community, pray with them and give as we felt the Lord lead. Their hearts were overjoyed.
Through your love and faithful prayers and support of Faith In God Missions we were able to help. Please keep those affected by all the storms in 2017 in your prayers as they are still rebuilding their homes and their lives.
Debris still on the streets. Supplies we delivered. Helping a family in need.
All through the year we work on mission projects, support missionaries and send food and supplies to those in need. YOUR FAITHFULNESS to the ministry is how we are able to accomplish this. We greatly appreciate your continued prayers for this ministry.
Please continue to keep Faith In God Missions and all of our missionaries in your prayers.
Thank you from the bottom of our heart,
