Romans 5:5 has been a backbone scripture for New Hope Ministries during the uncertainty of the coronavirus pandemic: “Hope does not disappoint!” Especially now, we cling to Jesus and His promises!
You may know people who have lost jobs, lost time, lost hope, and even lost loved ones because of COVID-19. The future seems uncertain, and people are scared. How will they feed their family? Or pay their next rent or electricity bill? Or get back to work?
You can help people right now who are asking these questions when they come to New Hope Ministries. You can feed the hungry, keep families safe together in their homes, provide job search help and training to the unemployed, and give HOPE and encouragement to people feeling anxious and facing giants in their lives.
Your generous financial gifts and abundant prayers today will bring help and hope to our neighbors in times of need as we weather the next few months together. We recently had a family we have been helping that lost their mobile home in a fire. New Hope was able to provide a dumpster and partner with volunteers from a local church to clean-up and dispose of debris after the fire. We helped with temporary housing, food, gas cards, thrift store gift cards for clothing and household items, and even found job training for one family member. We continue to work with this family to help get them back on their feet and into a new home. They can’t believe anyone would help them this way, and are so thankful that New Hope is here to walk with them! Your support makes “mission moments” like these possible!
It may be an uncertain and daunting time for families with hardships like this, but we can be certain of our hope in Christ. As Galatians 6:9 reminds us, “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”
Will you please join us in a bountiful harvest? We know where out help comes from, and you can help us share God’s love through words and actions with the hurting in our community. Thank you!
