A Modern-Day Miracle
Looking Up 
Dear Friends of Living Hope, 
 

Thank you for your interest in the work God is accomplishing in NE Minneapolis through Living Hope Ministries.

 

Last week we shared about the Red Sea experience and how the Israelites were put in a position of having to look up for God's provision. No doubt there were those who scoffed at such an endeavor, as there may be now. However, their unbelief did not in any way deter God from accomplishing what He had set out to do.

 

Looking up requires people to humble themselves before God realizing if He does not act, nothing will happen. Scripture reveals to us times in which men and women were put in positions where their only response was that of prayer.

 

One instance of the power of prayer is revealed in the book of Acts Chapter 12:1-16. As you read this account ask yourself this question: In what ways have I seen God show up like this? How encouraging it is to know we are not alone.

 

When we are faced with insurmountable "obstacles", we pray. We do this because we realize we are helpless on our own. It is here in which God desires us daily.

 

When the Israelites faced the Red Sea, the obstacle standing in front of them was that which God used to demonstrate His power and deliverance for them. On the other side was freedom from the bondage of slavery. A building is not intended to provide for us freedom, rather is a tool to be used in proclaiming freedom to those in our community, The Miracle Mile.

 

Our need is this: By April 30, 2013, we are asking God to provide $105,000 to first pay off our current facility, and an additional $350,000 to pay off the additional facility.

Since moving to our current building that has only the one room, we have had to cease some of our more highly attended events, which has severely reduced the number of kids and families we are now able to serve. Our focus is not on "a" building, rather on building eternity with Christ into the lives of those we serve. Within one mile, is a population of 20,000 people, 5,000 of whom are under the age of 19 and 20% living at or below the poverty level.

 

The adjacent facility would open up opportunities for us to restart English Language Classes, Wednesday evening dinners, of which we used to serve well over 100 each week, Transformers - our midweek Sunday school where children age 2 through adult participated in one way or another, after school programs of sports, education, crafts and computers. In addition to the restart, it would also allow new opportunities to serve the community through legal, dental and medical care, a food shelf and sports program that would incorporate the gospel into every practice and game. It is conceivable to see over 100 people from our community, The Miracle Mile, served each day.

 

Please join us as we "look up" each day, that we would remain focused on courageously presenting the Gospel that brings freedom to all who believe; and that God would receive all glory for the work He does.

 

Invite others you know to join us in this.

 

Blessings to you,
