The Hope Box Partnership
Currently we are spending our energy, time and resources to give and help raise raise donations for the hopebox project in Atlanta, GA.
We strongly belive in the saying that charity begins at home. Our desire is to see each and every child born regardless of the circumstances has a healthy future and a good shot at life. Moving forward we will continue to partner with local charities working under the law to solve local problems.
The Orphan Program
From the beginning of 2018 we provided basic essentials to over 200 orphans in the villages of Sasi, Oldadai & Shangarai villages. We fed them on a monthly basis, provided bedsheets, mosquito nets and new mattresses to ensure they have a decent living condition. Additionally, we footed part of their monthly utility bills i.e. water, electricity etc. However with time, we decided to dedicate more resources here in America.
The Widows Program
In collaboration with local pastors in Tanzania, we met a group of widows that accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and together with the ministry we facilitated weekly visits and assisted them with food, sanitary essentials and other items as we we were able.
Why our ministry does this for widows and orphans
According to James 1:27, “Visiting the widow and the fatherless in their distress” is considered by God to be “pure and undefiled worship.” In fact, the last line of this passage, which says “and to keep oneself unpolluted (or unstained) by the world, actually does not have the word “and” in the original Greek text. When this passage is read in its entirety without the word “and” it tells us that the care of the widow and the fatherless keeps us from being unpolluted by the world. In other words, it is a significant measure of our faithfulness to our bridegroom, Jesus. In essence, the implications for not caring for the widows and the fatherless, is, that we, as the church or ministry, are living in an adulterous relationship with the world.
It should be noted that the 2 things that Jesus does for us when we accept his proposal of marriage (the Gospel) is take away our eternal widowhood and fatherlessness. According to Jewish tradition when a woman agrees to marry a man she is considered to be his wife even before the wedding ceremony takes place. This also means that she immediately comes under the authority of her father-in-law rather than her own father, even though she will remain in his physical house until the wedding ceremony takes place. Therefore, James 1:27 speaks both of the literal widows and fatherless as well as those who are spiritual widows and fatherless. This is the only possible explanation for the outcome recorded in Acts 6:1-7. That the outcomes through caring for the widows and the fatherless will be that of deliverance and redemption for those separated from God.
