Last night was the 50th night of our online revival and we enjoyed the service very much.
Since it was our 50th night, we decided to try something special. We decided to try and help some people that are physically hungry in four different parts of the world.
I sure this same story could be told from all over the world, but there have been four specific areas that have been on my heart, where the coronavirus lockdown is causing people to struggle to have enough to eat. The common economic model in the world is people living from day to day. They work, earn a little money and purchase food for their families. That is impossible to do if you have to stay home. They do not have a week's worth of food stockpiled and it is impossible for them to do that.
Bro. Larry Landress has been sending money regularly to his people in southern Mexico that need food desperately. Most of the churches are in mountainous areas and they have to travel to buy food staples. They are forbidden to travel, but one of Bro. Larry's men has been purchasing the food and distributing it the best he can. There is a great need there. They do not have a Wal-mart or Kroger's down the road.
My dear friend, Bro. Shobanke in Nigeria has been locked down for nearly five weeks. He has received some help and he has shared it with his pastors and his church people. There are many of them going hungry and there is a great need there as well. My heart breaks for my people in Nigeria.
Bro. and Sis. Petit are in the Philippines and have been locked down for nearly two months. Their Pastors and the congregations are struggling to eat as well. The Petit's are trying to help as much as they can, but more money would be a great help.
Bro. Alan Sumner is in Honduras trying to keep the family ministry there afloat during Martial Law. He is feeding the church folks and planning to feed at least 300 more families too. He has a great work to do and he is doing his best to do it.
I ask the viewers and listeners last night to help these mission efforts OR find someone nearby that needs help and help them. There may be someone right on your street that needs food or diapers for their baby. You may not have abundance, but if we wait for abundance to give, we may be waiting a long time.
I thought some of you might want to get in on the giving. I am copying the information below that I posted on YouTube and Mixlr. There is no pressure to give at all, but if you do, you will be helping folks that need it. I assure you that 100% of the money will go to the intended need.
