“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good.
His love endures forever.”

Psalm 136:1

 

Hands of Hope Tribute 

The Psalmist in the verse above gives two reasons to be thankful: God’s constant goodness and His steadfast love. We want to pay tribute to our Savior, as we look back to His faithfulness in 2018, for His continued goodness and love for Hands of Hope. We also pay tribute to each of you for your loving support beyond what we could ask or think. The Lord has provided for all our needs the last 18 years and because of your generosity we will approve 2019 Zimbabwe budget at our January HOH board meeting. Two are better than one and a unified unselfish team can accomplish much for the glory of God. We consider you part of our Hands of Hope family.

Pictured here is our which Pastor Abel recently sent me. He also shared that the Mbare Community Church and the kids at Shammah are doing very well. They are currently working on a documentary to paint a picture of what is happening in their church in terms of community development. The Lord is using them to impact and transform Mbare. We are looking forward to receiving their full report along with testimonies of what the Lord is doing through the church and with the precious children

We trust that 2019 will be filled with the knowledge of God and His will. G.K. Chesterton once remarked that, “To disbelieve in God would be like waking up in the morning, looking into the mirror and seeing nothing. There would be nothing to reveal your appearance.” May we all behold Jesus as in a mirror and then we will be transformed into His image by the Lord the Spirit. 

Thank you for Jesus’ sake and for the children,  

Glen & Patty
