New York City - Jesus Week 2017

  • Posted: 2017-05-18

The week of May 27-June 3, a coalition of churches in NYC are coming together like never before for “Jesus Week 2017.” In the span of a few days, hundreds of churches and parachurch organizations will be mobilized to every zip code in NYC – ministering in schools, troubled communities, and to the poor. An estimated 150,000-200,000 homes will be reached with the gospel! Over 800 languages are spoken every day in NYC, and one partner in this project has identified every household where a language other than English is spoken at home.

A primary tool to minister to these families will be the Saturate NY mobile app, uniquely designed to share the Gospel and empower believers to share their faith with anyone in NYC. The HOPE Film and Study Guide will be included in this app and used to share God’s great redemptive story in the most diverse city in the world! To see what these partners are doing, download the saturate nyc app or visit their web page at http://saturateny.org/resources/jesus_week/.

Helping Haitian Refugees in Mexico

  • Posted: 2017-05-18

April 2017. There are some 7,000 Haitians stuck in Tijuana with hopes of getting into the U.S. Many of them had been contracted to work in BraziI for the Olympics and then forced to move on. One of our ministry partners is coordinating an effort to prepare “Bible Boxes” for these displaced Haitians. These boxes will include copies of The Haitian Creole HOPE. Many of the boxes will actually be distributed with Micro SD cards for use in mobile phones, which are common among these people.

Waiting in Line and Watching The HOPE

  • Posted: 2017-05-18

From Pakistan to El Salvador, what do food and clothing banks have in common with medical and dental clinics? People often have to wait in order to be helped. In the past two months, we received reports from ministry partners in three very different parts of the world, each one telling how The HOPE was used to share the Gospel while people waited to be served.

In Pakistan, Sindhi speakers watch The Sindhi HOPE in a clinic while waiting to see the doctor. 

The doctor reported that Muslim women come to him with many spiritual questions after watching The HOPE. The Sindhi team says that what captivates those in Pakistan watching The HOPE, is that the Bible seems to be for everyone not just for Christians. That is exactly why we made The HOPE, The Story of God’s Promise for All People!
