International (MNN) ― Suffering is worldwide, from Sri Lanka to Senegal. In the U.S., many are suffering from the current state of our economy; $20 doesn't go as far as it used to. Partners International is doing what they can to offer hope to those in need through Harvest of Hope. By joining with this ministry, your gift of $20 could reach into eternity.
"Every day in the news, on the Internet, even in our neighborhoods, we are overwhelmed by the stories of people in need," says Partners President/CEO John Lewis.
Suffering in Sri Lanka has produced an urgent need you can help meet. In May, 25 years of civil war in Sri Lanka ended, but thousands of victims still remain displaced from their homes. You can read more about them by clicking here.
Disease and hopelessness is widespread in camps for the displaced. At last note, 35,000 kids and around 1,800 orphans were left to wander around these camps. To help the families in need, Partners provides a relief pack with two weeks of provisions. If you'd like to give a pack in the name of Christ, click here.
"Harvest of Hope" is a ministry developed by Partners for believers to help meet these great needs. Lewis explains the two-way dynamic. "It's a national leader with a vision to impact his community, and it's people like you and me that can help that vision become a reality."
Professional writer and speaker Kay Marshall Strom recently wrote a book about the ministry's mission based upon her observations in the field. "Harvest of Hope" details what happens when families around the world receive gifts through catalogs like the Harvest of Hope gift catalog.
"Our gifts really are making a difference," Strom says. "We as donors are changing this generation, and we are providing hope for the generation of tomorrow."
A gift of $20 USD can provide hope for many around the world. Undernourished children in Senegal can receive food and medical care for a month; persecuted believers can receive care packages. School children in India could receive new uniforms and textbooks. Or your gift could help build the church in underprivileged nations: young believers can learn new worship songs from songbooks, pastors could receive biblical materials, or you can provide Bibles for believers in India or China.You can read stories about this ministry's impact or give to a need by clicking here.
