Poverty– Cause of the Month October 2017

0

Poverty – Poverty is a state of lacking the necessities for survival that many of us take for granted. In its most extreme conditions men, women and children are suffering and at mortal risk due to lack of food, water, sanitation, clothing, shelter, medical assistance and education. As Christians, we are concerned about all forms of suffering, oppression and poverty. We encourage Christians everywhere to do their part in obeying God’s call to embrace a lifestyle of sacrifice and service in every  area of their lives, whether for the local or global poor.

Mercy House Global is our recipient of the month for October. They exist to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name. Engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty. Empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable fair trade product development. Disciple women to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. Mercy House will aid these women  in education, nutrition, housing, medical care, counseling, Bible study, and job skills for sustainable living in their country.
