Joy to the World – Video Journey – RELIEF
10/40 Connections is not a relief organization. However, we do seek to empower the local church to be onsite immediately when disasters strike. Over the years, there have been natural disasters (floods, earthquakes, mud slides, fires) where 10/40 provided resources to local church planters who provided needed services in the Name of Jesus.
In 2020, we engaged in the relief work of feeding projects. When governments shut down economies due to COVID, those living hand-to-mouth struggled the most. When people lost their jobs, they lost their housing and their daily sustenance for their families. Despair set in. Hopelessness became a common companion. Suicide increased. A Thai woman declared, “I would rather die of COVID, than to watch my family die of starvation that will happen with continual shutdowns.”
Jesus understands the need for daily bread. He even teaches us to pray for it. After multiplying the fish and loaves, Jesus declares that he is the Bread of Life. Jesus cares for the hungry tummies of the world; and Jesus knows that he is the only way people will be truly satisfied on earth.
Through empowering local believers to provide relief to their local communities, church planting takes place among the least reached.
Provide relief and spread the Bread of Life to the unreached.
