Dear friends, colleagues, ministry partners, and prayer warriors:
As with all of you, Hope International Ministries (HIM) is taking the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic very serious. No doubt global developments of the last few weeks have disrupted lives even in your own neighborhoods and brought unprecedented change and adjustment to each family regardless of your location, economic, or social status.
However, and most importantly, we want to encourage all of us to pray more. Scripture commands us to "pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). Let us remember that the Lord of lords, the King of kings, is still in control. He loves us and our lives are in His hands. We are to pray for our families but also, as Christian people, we need to reflect Jesus and bring grace, comfort, love, joy and peace into the lives of those around us. We need to trust God Almighty and be witnesses of His presence in this world during these tumultuous days.
Hope International Ministries (HIM) has reached out to all of our ministry partners in Latvia, Ukraine, Russia, Lithuania, and Estonia. We assured them that we are in this together. We promised our prayers and support. We cannot let down those we have committed to pray for, encourage, support, and share joy and tears with.
We are also praying for you- our prayer warriors, volunteers and sponsors. We are praying for your families to stay healthy and spiritually strong. May the peace of our Lord, which surpasses all understanding, guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus! Amen!
Together, with your help, we will continue ministering overseas with our financial support, the best available modern technology, and best of all, our steadfast prayers and encouragement.
Please continue sending your donations and financial support. Together, we can continue impacting lives of thousands of children, teenagers and youth. Together, we can continue being the light and the salt to this world. Together, we can testify of our Lord’s goodness even in the midst of these unprecedented global changes and challenges.
We are in this together. Together with you. Together with Him.
