YOU MADE A DIFFERENCE!!!!! A miracle in Papua New Guinea….
As many of you know, our links missionary is the Dooley family- a doctor family serving at our Nazarene Hospital in Papua New Guinea. Several months ago, Scott Dooley joined us in our morning worship service via Skype over the internet. It was a wonderful morning as our Missionaries to Haiti, the Fasnaugh family, joined us live in worship.
During that worship service, Scott asked us to begin praying for a miracle. Their hydro-electric system- their power system that allows them to run the hospital- had been damaged and they were now paying huge prices to use the government’s electrical system. Their electrical system is very unstable and spikes in power were constantly damaging what limited equipment they had.
The problem was that to replace the hydro-electric system is a multi-million dollar project. So, they sent the word out to Nazarenes across the globe, including us on that sunday morning. So, we’ve been praying and Nazarene’s everywhere began giving sacrificially. They gave over $120,000! That is a huge amount of money, but obviously not enough to meet his massive and desperate need. But, God has a way of turning our offerings of bread and fish into a bounty that more than meets the need.
Because Nazarenes sacrificially invested first, another organization stepped in (along with a couple other donors) to fund the rest of the multi-million dollar project! So, our hospital is going to be able to fix the electrical system problems.
Sometimes when we are sitting here in Indiana, it is easy to see the world evangelism needs as something far away and distant. And we are tempted to not invest ourselves financially. But, I want you to know that your giving to the World Evangelism Fund matters. These are real situations ministering to real people. They need our help and we cannot fail them. Thank you so much for making the World Evangelism Fund part of your weekly giving! If you haven’t given yet, just add a little to your offering check and mark your gift on the tithe envelop under World Evangelism. It’s that simple.
