November 2019 Year-End Update
THE STRANGER WHO DWELLS AMONG YOU…
The world news is filled with stories of the displaced and the refugee. To borrow from our Fresh Start language, there are so many “GAPs” between these people’s EXPERIENCE, and GOD’S DESIGN. Scripture speaks to His heart concerning this very real and ongoing humanitarian crisis:
“The stranger who dwells among you shall be to you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.”
Fresh Start For All Nations has been invited into a number of strategic partnerships to directly impact the hearts and lives of refugees in multiple locations around the globe. Where our partners are providing health-care and food for the body, Fresh Start is able to provide heartcare and food for the soul. Men, women, children and families have all been affected by the trauma of the offenses, hurts and losses suffered through wars, crime, poverty and oppression – and we have an amazing opportunity to minister the love of Jesus…
…and the TRANSFORMING POWER of HIS FORGIVENESS!
“From the beginning, we have always known and acknowledged that Fresh Start is an expression of God’s heart – and a sacred stewardship that has been entrusted to us by Him. Sharing the message of “Forgiven, Forgiving and Free” with people and in places we could never have imagined is truly a gift from the Lord. All the credit, glory and honor be unto our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!”
