From October 19th - 21st our Haven of Hope center in Escuintla, Guatemala organized a bible school for the children while on school vacation. Children came in the morning and enjoyed a delicious nutritious breakfast. Throughout the day the children had a wonderful time enjoy a variety of activities, bible lessons, dramas and games. They learned from the Bible verse Ephesians 6:10-18 and focused also on the importance of studying the Word of God.
It was a wonderful week and we are seeing positive results. Children who came to our center malnourished are now healthy. Children who come from troubled families and arrived with serious behavioral problems are maturing and learning at our center about obedience, compassion and love. Most importantly we are seeing the fruits of the seeds we have planted in the lives of the children and adults over the years and the Holy Spirit is doing the work in their hearts.
Please keep our Haven of Hope center and all of our centers in prayer and also become a monthly financial partner to keep these wonderful programs going.
Sorry but what does posting what you post online help, certainly not unifying, certainly not advancing the Gospel. God’s will that takes precedence over everything and everyone (Matthew 6:33). God’s plans and purposes are fixed, and His will is inviolable. What He has purposed, He will bring to pass, and no government can thwart His will (Daniel 4:34-35). because “the Most High is sovereign over the kingdoms of men and gives them to anyone he wishes” (Daniel 4:17). Even though evil men abuse their political power, meaning it for evil, God means it for good, working “all things together for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:28).
We as Christians are consumed with self, our family, our nation. but the word of God says. Philippians 3:20-21, But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for him to return as our Savior. 21 He will take our weak mortal bodies and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same power with which he will bring everything under his control. Time to be eternally minded.
Pray for those in leadership, edify your brothers and sisters, be a light in a dark world!
So no doubt we need immigration reform, protect borders from criminals, but know the facts, majority of crimes....by citizens, and if you had empathy you would place yourself in other shoes. Imagine your family is starving, suffering, and just a few hundred miles away there is hope for them, but the process is abusive, oppressive, expensive and while trying to do everything legally your family is starving....now what you do? Its time for us to see others as souls and not their status and react Biblically. Here are 12 passages that discuss how Christians should treat immigrants, refugees and those in need of help.
