Three ways you can give HOPE before Christmas...
We love to create stuff. Just think about the feeling of anticipation when you are creating a picture, redeocrating a room, writing a song or building a ginormous, tasty sandwich. It's exciting! Why do we love to create? Because we were made in the image of a God who is, in Himself, the Creator.
Walking in the image we were created in brings us to life. And so we come to the latest amazing opportunity to grow in the fullness of your walk with Jesus. Because what else is God like? Is He giving? Yes. Is the the giver of Hope to a world without any other real hope? Yes.
This is where you come in. This where you get to join with God in GIVING HOPE. And so we created THE BIG GIVE!
We are linking arms with churches across the world to GIVE HOPE to women and children in Nepal who have been rescued for trafficking into the Sex Industry.
The project is called Hetauda House and was started by a Nepali women called Lila who, as a child, literally saw her friends get abducted one and sold into slavery.
The safe home will give shelter to around 60 women and children providing them with accomodation, healing through Jesus from the horrific experiences they have faced and training to give them new skills to make a living outside of the sex industry.
HOW YOU CAN GIVE HOPE
Here are just THREE WAYS you can help give hope in the month of November by joining in with THE BIG GIVE:
1. GIVE. We have a goal to raise £2500 in November to help fund the construction of the safe home in Nepal. By giving generously you can help see this dream of hope become a reality.
2. BE THERE. Come along to church and bring your friends. This is a brilliant month to come along and be part of what we're doing at Centrepoint. We have a ton of fun stuff planned to go along with the Hetauda House Project.
3. PRAY AND SHARE. All hope has one source: Jesus. He is the source of, root of and fulfillment of freedom. So pray for Hetauda House, pray for the funds to come in, pray for many more to get rescued from the sex industry. And share the gospel - because the good news of the gospel is hope to people all over the world because we all need a hero and that hero is Jesus.
