When it Strikes Home

I recently had an opportunity to watch a video about a very godly man who has poured much of his life's work into helping others. His goal (and widespread outreach) has been to improve the condition of water in third-world countries. His mission is amazing, and his heart for the Lord and for helping others moved me greatly.

Non-profit organizations that help others have been at the forefront of my mind lately. Their help for others and their love for each and every person they help is amazing. I wanted to share some of these with you, and encourage you to help as you are able. It truly is amazing to know you have helped someone. (I think of Matthew 25:40 here.) Here are ministries we have been blessed to contribute to and pray for:

Ruth Harbor is a Christ-centered home for young women who are alone and facing unplanned pregnancies. "Ruth" means compassion; "Harbor" means a place of refuge, safety, retreat, shelter.

Compassion International: "Releasing children from poverty in Jesus' name"

World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice.

The Voice of the Martyrs
is a non-profit, interdenominational organization with a vision for aiding Christians around the world who are being persecuted for their faith in Christ.

Thank you for taking the time to read this! I know that each person has ways they share, and there are endless possibilities on who to contribute to. I would love to hear of any organization, person, ministry, etc. that you love to give to! As Christ followers and Bible-believing saints, I firmly believe that we should always be looking for ways to show others the love God has poured out on us.

Knowing that our resources come from God fuels a desire to give back to Him with our whole hearts! In every way we give to others, our desire is to glorify God and do everything in His name.
