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!

Biblical View of Immigration

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.

Become A Cheerful Giver

You are The Hope Movement, we are a team in the work of God, we can not fulfill our calling without you. Just as our calling is to go and work in the mission field to transform lives, you have a profound calling to give to help sustain the work being accomplished.

 

As the word of God has directed us in 2 Corinthians 9, "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

From the Founder's Heart

Bangladesh is the 8th most populous nation in the world. The nation is 86.6% Islam, 12.1% Hinduism, 0.6% Buddhism and 0.4% Christianity. Jonathan Roiz, Founder / President of The Hope Movement became friends with Pastor Suku Ranjon Sikder in Bangladesh. Jonathan felt God giving him a bur den for this nation and was inspired by this pastor who has dedicated everything to feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, helping the sick, helping orphans and widows of various religions in dangerous conditions while also sharing the Jesus Film to evangelize to those who don't know Jesus Christ.

 

Pastor Suku founder of Mighty300 Ministries Welfare Trust Bangladesh also rents a small building which is a safe place for Christians as well as people of other religions to come and find literature about Jesus Christ, a place to grow spiritually in the Bible and disciple new Christians. The Hope Movement was able to supply Pastor Suku with donated digital cameras, evangelism materials, food packs to assist him in his efforts to transform Bangladesh. We also were able to supply funds to feed the hungry and paid for the installation of electricity in the ministry center as they never had electricity.

Searching for Hope

Sandra is only 11 years old and she lives with her two younger sisters, her Mother, and her Grandmother in a aluminum one room hut that has no bathroom, no water, and no electricity which they built 8 months ago on an abandoned lot next to the Haven of Hope Center which was used by the neighbors as a trash dump where you could find used drug needles, and piles of trash. The children are from different men, her Mother does not work, and brings different abusive men into their one room shack each night. 

 

Sandra was sponsored by Christian Children’s Fund, but her sponsorship ceased because they closed the office that was supporting her. A Christian family took Sandra into their home, and offered her a better life, a private school education, and her own room. But a year ago the child sponsorship stopped, and her Mother made her return to live with her so that little Sandra can work to support the family.

 

Sandra went from living in a Christian home with a room of her own, education, and hope for the better future, to living in a one room shack that has no bathroom, no water, and no electricity. Sandra works from early in the morning to late at night helping her family to survive. Her eyes are tired, her heart is heavy, and she longs for hope.

 

She has big dreams for the future, but her only hope is the Haven of Hope Center since there are no outreach centers or programs in Escuintla. This is a child who you can help by supporting us to make this vision into a reality.

My Two Dreams

Her name is Nayeli Esmeralda. She is 8 years old. When asked when her birthday is, she replied “I don’t know, all I know it has past”. Her eyes tell a story of a child who lost her Mother because she left her with family . A child living in extreme poverty, and is malnourished physically and emotionally. She holds your hand in a way that cries out Never Let Me Go! On New Years day 2010 we provided her with some new clothing, and shoes. When asked what are her dreams she replied, “To have my family united, and that the poor children will have clothes and food”. 

 

This precious child who is suffering greatly set aside her own pain to think of others. Help us help her by supporting the Haven of Hope Center.

Shoes for the Children of the Amazons

On November 18, 2009 the Hope Movement received a generous donation in the amount of $1,111.89 from a local church in Maryland for the purchase of shoes for our children in our outreach centers in the Amazon city of Iquitos, Peru which is currently serving over 200 children. Marta Noguera, the program director and Pastor of the Luz de las Naciones (Light of the Nations) Church in Annapolis, Maryland sent the funds to our center director, and on Saturday, December 5, 2009 the centers director Graciela de Flores went to the market in Iquitos, and came into contact with a store who had enough shoes for all of the children, and offered us a discount since we are purchasing many pairs of shoes. Because of this discount we will have some extra funds to have a beautiful Christmas Children's Party bringing joy and love to children who have faced difficult times in their short time on this earth, opening their eyes to their potential and the love of God.

Shaking The Comfort Zone

Fatherless, Motherless, Hopeless the result of selfishness. Longing for a loving caress. Drowning in the abyss of society’s lack of knowledge that I exist. Imagine you in my place, the result of human disgrace. 100,000,000 like me. More slavery now than in history. In the U.S. alone 50,000 women and children are trafficked annually. They abide where you reside. But you never heard their cry. This is an emergency for a movement of hope. Psychological contamination fed into the blood stream from generation to generation. Family disintegration. The definition of family in a state of disintegration. But there is a hope for family reconciliation. Impoverished souls, in impoverished conditions. Self medication suffering from hope malnutrition. The face of racism changed from segregation to immigration. But there is a hope for the purification of the heart pollution.
