Hope for all seasons is what we bring with us when we go on medical missions trips.
Mission Partners for Christ is grateful to be partnering with great people from all over the world who share a vision to bring medical care and hope to people who need it. Teamwork, communication, dedication, prayer, and more help things come together while we serve. It is so exciting that we are able to make a difference!
Hope for the hungry
This year, we were able to partner with Hope for Burkina Futures and with Rise Against Hunger. Rise Against Hunger provided meals to Hope for Burkina Futures. Mission Partners for Christ covered the shipping costs of the meals. We are glad to say that 1320 boxes went out in a shipping container and over 880 boxes of food were distributed to about 5200 people or 750 families. That’s a lot of food!
What is unique about the food distribution through Hope for Burkina Futures is that the families who were served had been displaced due to terrorism and violence in their nation. According to the U.S. Department of State website which you can go to read more about this, there has been a sharp increase in terrorism activities since 2019. Thousands of people lost their homes as a result. You could probably imagine that this would be disheartening for those impacted. The spread of disease, loss of access to public services, and other types of violence also increased. Christian activity is not encouraged in Burkina Faso, so it is an extra blessing that we were able to be part of bringing hope into a dark situation. This is just one example of the work that Mission Partners for Christ is doing in this season.
How can God use you to share hope in this season?
Each and every one of us can be used by God in this season to His love to people. We can pray. Another thing we can do is pray that people will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We can find hope and peace in Jesus and by studying the Bible, and share what we learn. We can learn more about the various organizations we can give to during this time. With hope, we will be able to travel on medical missions trips in 2021. We are currently thankful for the ways that are available to support our partners and people in places like Burkina Faso.
