The Key Word Is …

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God
in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14

 

Dear friends and partners,
As we press into the new year, the word that keeps coming to mind for 2016 is completion. While completion could render itself into many areas, we don’t see it as letting go but more specifically as completing the tasks already before us.
As a ministry leader, it is often very difficult to deny a request for aid in a country that lacks resources for the basic needs for survival in many of its communities. People are dying for lack of these needs, but what is even more concerning is the fact that men, women and children are going unreached with the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
With that said, God has laid on our hearts to complete three important tasks already in various stages of development. Our focus is to achieve these goals and watch what God will do in the lives of those living in each of the communities where HGA is currently focused. Please pray with us for these goals to be accomplished, and for God to be glorified in all things.
Uganda: Over a year ago we began a widows center in Bunambutye. Our goal was to provide a small loan of 40.00 to start a savings program. The women have thrived, and the program has instituted new hearts and new lives for those that had no voice in the community. It has taken a … (continue reading)
South Sudan: In 2013 we preached the gospel in a village that had not heard the Word of Jesus and we witnessed lives that were forever transformed. Land was donated for a church, and a borehole was set to be placed within the community. Women are losing babies  due to the unclean, contaminated water. In 2015, a pastor by the name of Mark came to village to   … (continue reading)
Kenya: In 2015, we made a visit to a school in Nairobi that is run by our Kenyan Board Member, David. It’s a private Christian primary school that reaches out to all people in the community regardless of the family’s religious affiliation. The school is in dire need of repair, and yet it’s not … (continue reading)
It is so important to follow the Lord’s leading as we begin this new year, putting His plans above our plans and doing all we can to obey Him in the process. This is not just my goal … as partners in this growing and impactful ministry, we share the blessing of focusing on these three areas being targeted in 2016.  We need you. More importantly, however, the men, women and children in Africa need you!
Please use the links above to learn more about each of our goals for 2016. Pray with us for God to stir the hearts of many to share with those whose need is so great.  Join us in praise for all that God has already accomplished in these areas and others.  Give Him the glory for those we’ve seen come to the knowledge of His great gift of salvation through Jesus Christ and bind together with us to see more lives transformed in 2016 as we work together to fulfill the vision God has given. None of these projects can move forward without your support, prayers and commitment to seeing the Gospel spread throughout the nations!
We pray that God will bless you with all spiritual blessings throughout this new year, for His glory alone!
Because He Lives,
