Keeping Christ central
A weekly series from HOPE’s director of spiritual integration
- In Asia, one HOPE client led 38 people in her rural village to Christ in two years.
- In the Philippines, another woman built relationships with over 100 people who now come with her to Sunday church services.
- A woman in California with only a second-grade education has started discipleship groups that are now reaching hundreds in her community.
If we’re honest, stories like these produce a mix of emotions for many of us. On one hand, we’re encouraged, inspired, and thankful. But in that same moment, there is often a subtle whisper:
I could never do that.
Do you ever feel that way? That stories of amazing transformation must come from uniquely gifted people who have figured out just the right methods to share Christ?
At HOPE, spiritual impact comes as God uses staff and clients to reach others. And just like you and me, these men and women realize they are imperfect messengers. They have family challenges, financial pressures, and personal battles with sin. The enemy works hard to tempt them to think, “I can’t really help others follow Jesus. I can’t be bold. Someone else, someone better, should do that.”
But freedom, boldness, and multiplication are exactly what God desires.
