Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NKJV) 11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12 Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. 13 And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
Hopelessness, poverty and oppression can blind people to this reality. Building relationship and establishing trust provides us opportunity to help guide people of all ages towards a loving and gracious God. When we minister to physical and emotional needs, we welcome and usher in the Holy Spirit to reveal man's deeper need for a Healer, Deliverer and a Savior! Heart issues are only healed in this relationship.
As part of Mercy Ministry, we do provide various forms of aid for the vulnerable. This is crucial especially for children, widows and the elderly. Our goal is to help empower individuals and develop dignity. Handouts or charity can often only treat the symptoms without addressing the underlying problems.
