Our God is a Transforming God...
Because The Outreach Foundation connects God’s people with God’s work in the world, we’re in a unique position to see His transforming power at work in all of our partners: individual donors, congregations and our global mission partners.
We ask you to prayerfully consider making a special gift this year to The Outreach Foundation. Your financial partnership with us will help ensure that Outreach is able to continue connecting God’s people with God’s work in the world.
Haiti was a hard place to live long before the 2010 earthquake struck. Political fighting, economic struggles and natural disasters have been commonplace for its entire history. People ask where God is in all this.
But, God is at work in Haiti. Haiti Outreach Ministries and its leader, Leon Dorleans, have seen God bring justice. Churches, schools and houses have been built through the faithful help and service of partners from around the world. Hungry children are fed, medical clinics are staffed, and people are work- ing thanks to vocational training. God’s transforming power has brought healing from the brokenness.
First Presbyterian Church, Huntsville, Alabama, has a proud 200 year heritage of service within the community. But God had transforming plans for them. One sunny Sunday, Outreach’s Rob Weingartner spoke to the congregation about the vulnerable church around the world — Africa, China, the Middle East. He invited the congregation to travel and join with these global church partners to share the Good News.
Soon, members of the congregation began showing up in Iraq, Syria, Cuba, and Rwanda as a sign of their solidarity and love. Today, First Presbyterian Huntsville is simply not the same church. More and more, they are living for the sake of others.
A few years ago, God brought Jim and Betsy Hunt and their family to a dusty and remote part of the globe: Tete Province, Mozambique. There, they saw how fresh well water immediately changes survival rates and improves the health of entire villages. They saw how bicycles enable evangelists to reach their multiple congregations much faster than simply walking. And, they saw how God’s Word, preached in mud churches, brings Jesus to life in people’s hearts. Just like the lives of the people they touched in Tete Province, Jim and Betsy’s lives are forever transformed.
