This year, every dollar received during Missions Month will be given to one of our 77 ministry partners here in Houston. The impact of a pandemic has exacerbated the challenges of those who are already struggling with difficult life situations.
With that in mind, we have turned our focus to our neighbors right here at home. Galatians 6:2 encourages, “Bear one another’s burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ.” This is a difficult year to ask anyone to consider bearing the load of others by giving above and beyond our normal giving. Yet, all the difficulties that we feel in our day-to-day lives are multiplied in the inner city. Volunteers who have helped in the past are generally not allowed to serve due to restrictive medical protocols. Funding has slowed as yearly banquets and galas have been postponed or canceled outright. All the while, ministry needs continue to expand.
I am convinced that the Lord has brought the world to us here in Houston, and we must reach out with the same abundance of love, compassion, and resources as we would provide abroad. The love of Christ is the message we convey when we bear each other’s burdens – next door, across the state, and the world. Please prayerfully consider helping us reach our goal of giving $1.5 million this year to our sisters and brothers in need.
Stay in the Battle,
