Dear Friends,

O God of our salvation; you are the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas. Psalm 65:5

YOU walk in hope with partners throughout the world and with Global Ministries in order that all of God’s people and creation share in God’s abundant life. For your presence and support on this journey, Global Ministries is very grateful!

Together we walk in hope. In a prayer shortly after the devastation by Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, Bishop Reuel Norman Marigza of the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP) shared: In times like these you assure us that we are not alone; that we have sisters and brothers who are moved to walk the lonesome valley with us. We thank you, for in times like these, your love and care are made more manifest and incarnate, made alive in concrete deeds of loving-kindness and compassion. YOU help the UCCP know they are not alone as they move from emergency relief to diverse actions of rehabilitation, including the provision of small fishing boats, solar generators and repair of homes and churches.

Together we walk in hope. The Orthodox Initiative in Jordan addresses the needs of some of the nine million Syrians who have fled their homes since the outbreak of the civil war. YOU participate in building a modest community center in the small village of Maru that will house women’s microcredit projects, a preschool for Syrian and Jordanian children, and will be a meeting place for the community to address the needs of Syrian refugees who arrive at a rate up to 100 per day.

These are just two of the many ways that together we walk in hope – YOU, Global Ministries and partners in 90 countries around the world. Your prayers, your witness for justice and your financial support are essential in enabling this call. Please give generously to Global Ministries so that, together, we continue to walk in hope with others in God’s mission.
