Loving As A Lifestyle: Not A Program
Parts of Africa have faced heavy rainfall and widespread flooding. Many weather stations recorded the heaviest rainfall in 40 years. Floods and flash floods have directly affected almost 2.4 million people across Africa. One specific community we have been investing in, really is in desperate need. More than 67,000 people were affected by recent floods and 40,000 have lost everything. Floodwaters have damaged, or destroyed thousands of homes, washed away their gardens, their farms, and their livestock.
New Generations has a long history of moving towards trouble and not away from it in crises like earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and typhoons. In every case, our response was driven by the twin goals of help for hurting people and the expansion of the Kingdom of God.
The global pandemic has not yet peaked in the areas we work in Africa and South Asia, so we don’t yet how bad it will be. Here is what we do know:
- Conditions are crowded – Social distance cannot exist.
- The people are poor – Many will die of starvation before sickness
- Health care is bad – If you are sick, you are on your own
- Economies are fragile – No $2T bailouts!
The people of Northern Kenya experience chronic hunger and the threat of famine. Recurring droughts make it difficult for farmers and herders to produce crops and feed livestock. Children are the worst affected, with their health and development drastically impacted. New Generation staff in the region say thousands of children in Northern Kenya will struggle to get enough to eat. We intend to serve those in need and feed the hungry. Join us in standing with those who are hungry.
Please join us in supporting those who are suffering from natural disaster. In many places where our teams serve, they have experience floods, earthquakes, and even cyclones. Many people have lost shelter and all worldly goods. We are walking alongside them during this devastating time. Please join us so that the love of Christ shines brightest in the darkest of times.
FIGHT SEX TRAFFICKING
For several years we’ve been quietly but steadily “saving” girls out of the sex industry until now we have 5 centers for prostitute rehabilitation. On an average, $500 will buy out the contract of a gal and give her a new chance at life. Then she learns to start “following Jesus” in community with other gals like herself. She begins sharing what she’s learning with other gals still caught in the trap of prostitution and she eventually starts an inductive Bible study with them. If you’d like to get involved in this ministry with us, we have a special account with New Generations called RESTORATION MINISTRIES where all donations go to “saving” these girls.
This last year, our teams and the believers in their communities have been persecuted more than any other time. They have been attacked, imprisoned, and sometimes even killed. Most recently bibles and churches were burned. We are heart broken by this tragedy. We have seen the devastation in the eyes of the church leaders and heard the deep discouragement in their voices. One of our regional leaders urged us by saying, “Something must be done because when one part of the Body of Christ is suffering, the entire Body is affected.” He also went on to say, “In every crisis there is opportunity! I have seen over and over again how what the enemy intended for evil, God can turn to good! I believe that now is the moment to prove to the radicals that they can’t win. Now is the moment for light to drive out the darkness. Now is the moment to prove that love is greater than hate. And now is the moment to for followers of Jesus around the world to stand together as one!”
