In every crisis there is a Kingdom opportunity!
Here is what that looks like in real life.
- Life-saving support for 13,000 families during a famine in East Africa led to the launch of 600 churches!
- During the Ebola crisis in West Africa, providing prevention supplies, feeding the starving and burying the dead opened highly resistant Muslim villages to the gospel.
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!
In short, devastation is at the doorstep!
Something else we know is that this is the worst possible time for fundraising. When people are losing money today and fearful about tomorrow, it is hard to give for needs far away.
But in 2 Cor. 8:1-4 the Macedonian churches set the pace in giving for the crisis in Jerusalem. “In a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality. For I testify that according to their ability and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much entreaty for the favor of participation in the support of the saints.”
It is time once again stand in the gap. Here is what WE will do:
- Pray: We have 50,000 intercessors we will mobilize to stop the plague, heal the sick, repair the damage and open the doors.
- Give: All that we receive, we will provide to those in need.
- Serve: Meet the needs that others can’t or won’t
- Seek: Find the person of peace who can open communities to the gospel
- Launch: Discovery Bible Studies that lead to churches follow help & service
Here is what we are asking YOU to do:
