Hope – a word often used in times of turmoil or crisis, but which sometimes describes
In the Bible, hope is used 129 times and appears in 121 verses. One particular verse is Hebrews 11:1 (ESV):
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
As believers, we know that Jesus is the source of all hope, even when hope seems lost. We should closely rely on our Savior and Lord for all things unseen, even during the times of struggle and chaos. But how do we extend that hope to the lost and hurting?
This year, STCH Ministries adopted the slogan Healing Hearts and Sharing Hope. We unashamedly share the love of Christ with every person served in our ministries, and we are grateful that in 2017, 323 children and adults accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Individuals moved from neglect, abuse, and abandonment to a new life of restoration, forgiveness, and safety. It is no secret that hearts were healed and hope was shared.
Here are a few examples of how STCH Ministries is Healing Hearts and Sharing Hope:
• Children are given a place to call home when their family is in crisis.
• Marriages are restored through Christian counseling.
• Single moms and their children are provided a safe home to escape abusive relationships.
• Men and women come to understand their value and identity in the workplace.
These acts of Healing Hearts and Sharing Hope would not be possible without the support of churches, individuals, and businesses who share our mission. As you know, it requires resources for STCH Ministries to care for children and families in our ministries.
