Real Hope Flickers

The smile of a destitute woman, unable to feed her small children, captures the emotion of hope breaking through the despair when servants of the Lord arrive with food.

A smile breaks through when this woman was told that help is on its way.

Total desperation is rarely felt in our daily lives here in North America. Even when one region of our community is hit with a fire or terrible storm, somewhere else nearby has supplies and is readily available to provide relief. Not so in Africa. Especially not among the poorest of the poor and outcast people of the rural villages.

Weak Made Strong

There is power in the testimony of a child who has believed in the name of Jesus. I’m amazed at times at how God will work through the faith of a child and lead them to speak with clarity and boldness about the faith they have in Jesus. We should never underestimate the potential results in a ministry to children. The effort to bring them the gospel will produce tremendous rewards.

Children are like sponges absorbing everything around them and learning from the experiences they encounter. But, they are often neglected by “important” people because they are small seemingly insignificant and not able to accomplish great things. Those “important” people may assume that children do not possess significant money and power. Jesus rebuked his disciples when they treated the children as unimportant.  “And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them.  But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.  Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. – Mark 10:13-16

Break Down Barriers

Many barriers are broken down when the gospel is preached by a pastor who is recognized by the people. The Holy Spirit can use anyone to be a witness, but consider the strength of using an indigenous pastor starting a church among his own people. White Fields Ministry has been supporting, financially and through prayer, the ministry work of national pastors since 1953. We identify pastors who are ready to work full-time starting a new church in an unreached community of their own country. Through this partnership with the missionaries serving cross-culturally, the laborers are multiplied.
