More than 250 partners, staff and supporters from around the world gathered for the fifth annual HOPE worldwide Global Summit meeting in Reston, Virginia on May 16, 2009. They heard speakers celebrate the faith, heart and impact of HOPE worldwide volunteers and leaders and challenge them to make a difference in these difficult economic times.
“All they asked was that we should continue to remember the poor.” –Gal 2:10
The brothers and sisters on the HOPE worldwide and Benevolence Committee have continued meeting together on a monthly basis, besides having extensive individual phone calls, emails and fellowship meetings between members. Since the last update (in late January) we’ve seen God bless our work in a powerful way, with the help of your prayers.
On March 27 in Boston, 24 men played basketball for 24 straight hours to raise money for the Sihanouk Hospital Center of HOPE. Doug Arthur, one of the event's participants, sums up the event and thanks the many supporters.
October 31 - November 8
The annual HOPE worldwide Global Summit projected a three dimensional view of the dawning of a new day. New focus, new partnerships, new milestones. Yet HOPE worldwide is not exempt from the global financial crisis.
The Scriptures clearly teach that we should be especially focused on meeting the needs of our brothers and sisters in the church.
