Worship in Action supports programs that help people break free from the cycle of poverty. Robert McNamara of the World Bank describes “absolute poverty” as this: “…a condition so limited by malnutrition, illiteracy, disease, squalid surroundings, high infant mortality and low life expectancy as to be beneath any reasonable definition of human decency.” In 2008, the World Bank estimated 1.29 billion people world-wide lived in absolute poverty. Statistics change minute-by-minute as new babies are born and people die. However, what remains is this fact: a great portion of our world suffers from the curse of abject poverty and it’s a godly mission to do something about it.
“…Your prayers and gifts to the poor have come up as a memorial offering before God.” Acts 10:7
We live in a world and in a time when natural disasters regularly occur. Typhoons, tornadoes, floods, mudslides, earthquakes, tsunamis…these acts of nature often leave in their paths destroyed homes, washed out infrastructures, loss of lives, severe injuries, tainted water sources, limited access to medical treatment or food, and many more life-altering scenarios.
When a natural disaster strikes, Worship In Action is prepared to respond. Will you join us?
“…You are my refuge in the day of disaster.” Jeremiah 17:17
Today, there are approximately 153 million orphans worldwide. This statistic does not include the totality of abandoned children, ones absorbed into the human trafficking industry, or even the nameless, unregistered children who dwell on the streets of major cities world-wide. The number of orphaned children in the world today is staggering and demands our advocacy. Will you join Don Moen :: Worship in Action as we support Royal Seed Home in Ofaakor, Ghana? Royal See is home to more than 190 children. WIA partners with Royal Seed on a monthly basis to provide nutritious food and safe water for the children.
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
