  • We are living in tough times. So many people are trapped in the midst of deep sorrow, overwhelmed by poverty and gripping oppression of all kinds.

    Ive held a malnourished newborn in my arms. Ive looked at the rubble of a familys home destroyed by an earthquake. Ive seen the heartache of a mother who couldnt clothe her children for the winter.

    Its situations like these that make me want to help as many people as I can in my lifetime. I also realize, in situations like these, that I cant do it alone. Sooner or later, I think we all come to that realizationwe need each other. We need help, coopera-tion, supportwe need partners.

    While Jesus was on this earth, He was all about doing good, healing, blessing and helping. He trained His disciples to work with Him in partnership, and they became examples for the rest of us.

    STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART

    When I think of , our friends and partners, I think of people who are committed to helping others. Even if cant be present physically, are involved in everything we do. participate in every missions outreach. Our combined effort fuels every relief or rescue project. are united with us in each conference...in the production of every radio or television broadcast...in each prayer and every other thing we do.

    Together, we are partners with Christ. We all share a common goal of bring-ing practical aid to people all over the world. We also share in the delight of each smile...each sigh of relief...each tear of happiness from those we help. And someday well all share in the joy of hearing our Lord say, Well done.

    Partnering together,
