VIDEO: A story of love, service and our hope in Christ

I love true stories, and I love stories that give a glimpse into God’s kingdom to come.

If you read our last Poverty 180: Education post, you were introduced to Elim Christian Services — a group of disabled adults who not only assemble school kits for children born into extreme poverty; through a partnership with FH, they’re intentionally building relationships with churches, leaders and families in Los Cipreses, Peru by regularly traveling there to spend time with them.

If you read our last Poverty 180: Education post, you were introduced to Elim Christian Services — a group of disabled adults who not only assemble school kits for children born into extreme poverty; through a partnership with FH, they’re intentionally building relationships with churches, leaders and families in Los Cipreses, Peru by regularly traveling there to spend time with them.

Today, the folks from Elim and many families in Los Cipreses share a unique bond built over the last few years. 

I like to imagine the day when all of God’s people will worship together in complete wholeness and health. No disability or poverty will be found, because it is said of God’s coming kingdom:

“‘God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death” or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.’ He who was seated on the throne said, ‘I am making everything new!’ Then he said, ‘Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.’”
(Rev. 21:3-5)

Until that time, we love God and love each other.

If you want to be uplifted and see how God is working in our world today, watch this moving video that shows the power of the relationships between clients at Elim and families in Peru.
