How Can We Assist Members In Need of Our Help?
December 08, 2011 Filed in: President
I found it difficult to rest last night because my thoughts were consumed with a young man who was baptized in the Youth Crusade two weeks ago. After responding to the call of God to became a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Demontry Ferguson now find himself in a situation where he is unemployed, in need of a place to live, and recently his life has been threatened.
The Apostle Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 12:9 that God’s grace is sufficient for us to triumph over our trials. As Demontry exercises his faith in God, I invite you to join me in prayer for this young man and others who might be in a similar situation. Additionally let us extend our arms of love in tangible ways and let Demontry know that he is not facing his trials alone.
If every Adventist who needed their car washed this weekend would say to Demontry I would let you clean my car; it would make a difference. In fact if we do this every week he would have a permanent Job. What are some of the other ways we can provide real help for those in need of our assistance?
