Another 50 families
In response to this pandemic, with the help and support of World Outreach, I reached another fifty families in my community. They are the ones who don’t know about the Lord Jesus Christ. I used this time of crisis as an opportunity to be a witness to these people. As I was handing over an assistance package, Mr S. who is a non-believer expressed, ‘I have seen Christian people giving priority to helping their own people, but you came to us and gave this package. We felt so important and you touched our heart. We are so grateful to you. You have shown care and love to us. My family is thankful to the giver.’ I am very grateful to WO for giving me this opportunity to serve these needy families. It’s really a joy to serve them. So far, you have helped me reach 200 non-Christian families from my community.
A member of the church got a call from her village asking for prayer for a lady friend and her unborn child. They did an ultrasound and said that the fetus was deformed and without any limbs. Prayer was requested for her and was prayed for over the phone. This point was shared in the church and everyone prayed for her. Some time later she was called for consultations to see what needed to be done next and they repeated the scan only to find that the baby was perfectly normal. Praise God!
Helping those who can’t work
