Due to the many travel restrictions and state of the economy, our ministry partners around the world cannot be visited by our volunteers. Hundreds of students at the schools and churches we serve may not receive the provisions they need to thrive in their education. Families needing homes in Mexico and Guatemala may not receive them. Churches may not be built.
The coronavirus has hit the mission community hard, and Mission Discovery needs your help to ensure our ministry partners can continue to grow the Kingdom of God.
In the past few weeks, you may have heard the statement countless times: “I’ve never seen anything like this before.” The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has given the world a lot to think about. Governments are responding to the pandemic and its effects on global health and the economy. But the question remains: How do we respond?
In the world of missions, there are multiple facets that keep the gears turning. Most organizations have the same goal. We want the world to know the saving power of Christ.
In Christ alone, we find hope for every situation. But, various organizations aim to accomplish that goal in different ways. The heart of Mission Discovery is to put our faith into action. The book of James talks a lot about this.
"What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.” (James 2:14-17, NIV)
Here are some extremely simple ways to help support the ministry of Mission Discovery, which is all about putting faith to action by building homes, churches, and schools for poverty-stricken communities around the world.
What if I told you that you could donate to Mission Discovery for FREE? It’s absolutely true and it’s never been easier. If you shop on Amazon, then you can set up an Amazon Smile account and set Mission Discovery as your nonprofit beneficiary.
You can then install the browser extension which will ensure that you are using your smile account each time you make an Amazon purchase.
You have probably seen this type of thing whenever your friends have a birthday. A lot of people are raising money for their favorite organizations through Facebook. It’s easy to do and can be very effective.
