Word of Life is privileged to be friends with many people across the
world who are living their lives as God has intended for them.
Many live in other countries that are not as blessed as we are,
where daily life, is a struggle, and others live here in Tuolumne County.
We will strive to offer specials at ZOE to bring a little extra support
to these amazing people and their ministries.
Be sure to watch for these opportunities!
We'd love to share some of their stories with you:
HAITI – an island that lies less than 700 miles from America's
Gulf Coast and where the people continue to suffer daily. Whether
it is from the effects of hurricanes, earthquakes or extreme poverty,
this nation is in need of great help. We are privileged to partner
with two ministries that work in this impoverished island and care
for these beautiful, resilient people.
RHEMA International – Bocozelle,
Haiti – provides medical care for the residents
of the Artibonite Valley, and also has a Maternity Hospital to help moms have healthy
babies. Since the hospital has opened, they have not lost one baby or mother in
Fishers of Men – Port-au-Prince, Haiti – has a strong
presence of God-loving
people in the heart of Haiti's capital city at Rock Church. Not only do they
house over 7000 members in their church, they provide meals for men, women and
over 3000 children in their 17 church/schools in the out-lying communities.
They also educate Haitian children at their private school – Morning Star Christian Academy.
INDIA – another impoverished nation that lies across the seas, far from our eyes.
We partner with Iris India as they help women and children that would normally
be cast aside in their society. They train untouchable tribe kids, widows,
and orphans, along with establishing Rescue Homes for Trafficked kids .......all
over India. They are changing their world one hug at a time!
