Hope for Sudan: Micah 6:8

Border Region, Sudan, Africa.

This is where my heart goes.

This is where my heart breaks.

Right now, in Sudan, there are 200,000 civilians being starved to death.
This has gone on for several years.

Unfortunately, this has been brought to my attention recently.

And now, I bring it to yours. So please, bear with me. Pray with us. Join us.

Where we sit as a country, we are comfortable, in our homes and offices.

Where Sudan sits as a country, they are running. Running on empty. Running for their lives. They are dying.

We, as a country, have so much.
And what of the Sudanese people? They have their hunger, fear and imminent death.

What can we do?

These are the facts and this is our mission:

These stifling facts have weighed heavy on the hearts of people at Hope Church.

I ask that you join us. Help us. Help us help these people.

Help us by praying, giving or going.

Pray BOLDLY. Our God is mighty. He can do all things.
Pray for this effort.
Pray for Sudan. 
Pray for the people. 
Their physical state, their bodies, their lives. There is a lack of food. 
Their spiritual state, their souls, their eternal lives. Though their lives, here, on earth, have value, this value is insignificant in comparison to their eternal souls.
Pray that they hear the gospel and be renewed and transformed by it.
Pray that they hear of Jesus Christ, what He has accomplished for us on the cross and believe.
Pray for their leaders. That they would come to know Christ, repent and follow Him.
Pray for those that are saved. That they would have perseverance through this fight.

As you know, the first stage of our effort is to raise $25,000 in five weeks. We ask that you give as much as you can, whether it be $1, $10, $100. Anything will help us mobilize this mission.
You can DONATE HERE or send a check to the following address:

Hope Church of San Mateo
  PO Box 25268
  San Mateo, CA 94402

Be encouraged to know that we have raised 20% of our goal, so far.

Will you join our efforts?

We have so much to give. So will you?


We are not asking you to go to Sudan this instant, although it is very needed. We are asking you to
Go educate yourself. Find more to this issue that what's been provided here. (Links provided below with additional information.)
Go inform your family, friends, co-workers.
Go tell everyone you know, not just the people you think will make a difference.
Go raise awareness on this topic.
Go repost this blog or our site:
Go get involved with us at Hope.

Our efforts here are not to make much of ourselves, but to make much of Christ, who has given us more than we could ever repay.

So I, as your friend, ask you to pray, give AND go.

Additional information about the events that have occurred in Sudan:

He has told you, O man, what is good;

and what does the LORD require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
(Micah 6:8 ESV)
