I want to ask you if you will join me in helping to transform the lives of children and their families – not just by providing education, water or food – but the word of God which truly changes whole communities.
You and I, people who honestly care about bringing long-term change, know that change begins in the heart.
And we can be change agents.
Become a Partner with a specific community for as little as $24 a month. Join other Canadians who are supporting that community; Canadians who have committed to sharing their gifts as they continue on a journey to transformation. You can receive the personal story of the visionary leader within a community, their goals and the challenges they face.
Our work is very, very difficult.
We start with prayer – because true transformational change cannot happen without the power of God. We partner with Christian leaders who are a part of the community already – men and women called by God to bring the message of salvation to the men, women and children who live in their region.
We are building the Church of Jesus Christ heart by heart. In our experience, the very best way to do this is to live among the people, care for them and look for real ways to intersect with their lives. Our national leaders are well-prepared to do that because they have grown up in that culture. They understand the deep-rooted barriers to the Gospel.
In addition to providing pastoral leadership, national leaders work with community leaders to help transform the whole community. Each individual community is unique. But in almost all of our work, we see a mixture of education, health-care, agricultural support and helping build small businesses to support their families.
Canadian Partners have already saved young teen-aged girls who were caught in the sex trade. We have helped fathers and mothers find a skill so they could increase their daily pay. We have built schools and water wells, fed the hungry and brought medicines to the sick. And in each community, we share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
If you want to learn more about our national leaders please continue on to the profiles of just a few of our national leaders. Each one is different, impacting their own communities for Jesus Christ. When you partner with a national leader, you will learn about their region and be a part of the work they are doing.
I invite you to join me – be a Partner who is truly making a difference in the name of Jesus.
