SAMARITAN’S PURSE IS DRILLING WELLS AND INSTALLING WATER SYSTEMS IN AN AREA WHERE WATER PIPES WERE DESTROYED IN THE CONFLICT.
Is your church looking for practical ways to be a blessing in your local community and beyond? Together we can reach hurting people with physical relief and the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want local churches to know how God is working both here and among the nations and then present them with opportunities to get involved. We invite your church to prayerfully consider supporting us as we help a hurting world in Jesus’ Name.
Members of your church can volunteer on an Australian disaster response, and bring compassion and relief to families struggling after a natural disaster.
Our partner churches also serve as a home base by housing Samaritan’s Purse volunteers, storing equipment, and connecting the community with service opportunities.
Is your church looking for a practical way to be a light in your community? Then, partnering with Samaritan’s Purse may be the right fit for you.
Please pray for Samaritan’s Purse projects that seek to help hurting people in the Name of Jesus. Pray that these projects will be a platform to build relationships and to introduce people to the hope that can be found in Jesus Christ.
If your church would like to receive ministry updates with our latest prayer points via email, contact us today.
