Venezuela

Once considered one of the richest countries in the world, Venezuela is now in crisis. In April of this year, Venezuela’s annual inflation rate reached 1.3 million percent.[1] In the United States, by comparison, the rate fell to 1.8%.[2] Families are going hungry, many barely surviving on one meal each day.

Those of us who see this crisis from the outside mourn for those who are suffering. Though we send our prayers, our desire is to do more. We may not have the power or influence to solve the entire problem, but we do have the resources and opportunity to make a difference.

“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”

― 1 John 3:17-18

“There is something for everyone to do. Every soul that believes the truth is to stand in his lot and place, saying, ‘Here am I; send me.’” (Isaiah 6:8)

― Ellen White

Several churches in Venezuela have come together in an effort to provide meals for their community. For $45, a family of four can be fed three meals/day for two weeks. The goal is simple: provide enough funds to feed as many in the community as possible.

Your donation will make an immediate difference in the lives of the people of Venezuela. Let’s pray for a resolution for the crisis, but let’s also do what we can right now.

“As the church, we are in community together trying to fulfill this Great Commission that Jesus left us with. As we gently press into each other, we form one united thing, His church. As we work together, sharing the space God gives us to do His work, we all become shaped a little different. We all become a little more like Him.”
