We believe that it is important for the Christian to experience and participate in the work of God in diverse and foreign cultures. Hannah MinistryMinistry to some of the world's neediest people and communities can lead to a radical transformation of one's life. While an opportunity for you to participate in a foreign mission trip may not be for you, here are a few opportunities for you to make a difference through either prayer support, time or a monetary donation in faraway places.
HannahMinistry is a non-profit, Christian organization that seeks to provide opportunities to children orphaned by war and disease in northern Rwanda. Special emphasis is placed on child headed households. A typical child-headed household is a home in which a child is faced with the responsibilities of caring for his or her younger siblings. These children are left parentless due to the death of their parents from HIV/AIDS or as a result of the genocide that occurred in Rwanda. Consequently their basic necessities of love, shelter, nutrition, clothing and schooling are not being met.
Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. "In FY2008, Heifer had 869 active projects in 53 countries/provinces and 27 U.S. states. Heifer Projects around the world help families achieve self-reliance through the gift of livestock and training. Gifts are passed from recipient to recipient until entire communities are transformed."
Money collected by the children of the church school is sent to this worthwhile organization.
