José and Gerlyn used to be our brothers in the faith from the Church in Guatemala. They left the church got married, and had two girls: Ester and Scarlett. After several years, Gerlyn decided to restore her relationship with God and the entire church rejoiced as she rejoined the fellowship.

Sadly, shortly after her restoration she was diagnosed with cancer and she passed away. Her husband Jose, while working through his own restoration, contracted COVID, and also passed away.

Ester and Scarlett are now young teenagers who have suffered the traumatic experience of losing both of their parents in less than a year. They have been taken in by a loving disciple family, who is in need of financial assistance to care and provide for these sweet girls.

Your support for them is greatly appreciated!

My name is Jonathan. I was baptized a little over nine years ago on July 08, 2011. I come from a large family of 9 children. I am an entrepreneur working in food product marketing to help my widowed mom and my siblings pay for their groceries and tuition.

When COVID spread, I became unable to earn enough money to cover all of the expenses for educating my siblings. I am calling on you, my spiritual family, to help my family and I during this difficult time. Your support greatly appreciated.

Hello brothers and sisters, my name is Noëlla, a disciple of Jesus Christ working as part of the teen ministry. My father is not in my life but, my mother, who is also a disciple, does everything to take care of us. Following the COVID 19 health crisis, my mother’s business has gone bankrupt.

My mom no longer has the means to pay for tuition fees, which is why I am asking for financial assistance to pay for the tuition, groceries, and rent. God bless you abundantly!

The Middle East is a beautiful region rich in natural resources, history, and culture. Its significance to many has created unseemly never-ending wars and conflicts that have caused the displacement of over 20 million people. Research on the needs in the region show that nearly 35 million require daily humanitarian assistance. (Pew Research Center)

The hardships that follow from living in a conflict zone spare no one and many of our brothers and sisters in this area are in urgent need of our help. The financial instability that our spiritual family faces is grave. Toppled governments and civil unrest makes it nearly impossible to earn a living, especially when the valuation of your country's currency is on a steep decline.

Below are the present needs for 10 disciple families/individuals. As always, 100% of your contributions will go directly to assist our brothers and sisters. God bless!

My husband and I came to church looking for a relationship with God.  We were dating at the time and wanted to bless our upcoming marriage, with him in our lives, and to be able to raise our children in him.

Because my husband made his own decisions apart from God's way, he left home, leaving my two daughters and me unprotected.

Right now, I am unemployed, my daughters are in school, and we are without funds to meet household needs.

My daughters and I are seeking your support to fund their immediate educational expenses. Your support will go a long way to help them as they finish their high school/university studies. Thank you and God bless!

The people of Haiti have endured an especially egregious year. The recent earthquake in Haiti, has caused a tremendous amount of physical damage to our country. Coupled with the stress of the pandemic and political instability, disciples in this part of the world are need of both financial and spiritual assistance. Many of our brothers and sisters have been left with nothing else but their faith in God and our looking to us to lift them up in prayer and support their needs as they bear the challenge of rebuilding their lives.

Below is the story of one family who is in need of your love and generosity:

Hello, my name is Genese. I live in Les Cayes, Haiti and I have been a disciple for 13 years. Since I was baptized inFebruary 21, 2008 I have loved being a part of the body and serving as part of the worship team. I am married and I help to supplement our household income by selling cosmetic products. Working in this industry has been very difficult, but I continue to push myself for the sake of my family.

Though things are still slowly being reopened after the massive earthquake, schools will likely reopen in the next month or so, but I currently have no means to pay for many of our household needs, let alone my little girl's tuition. If you are able, we ask for your help to pay for her school and groceries to feed our family. Thank you for your consideration!

I was baptized on September 29, 2019. Becoming a disciple saved my life. Before knowing God, I was going through a very rough phase in my life. However, thanks to the grace of God, not only was I saved, but so also my wife, mother, and sister! God is amazing!  

Today I come before you, to ask your assistance to pay for my son's laptop which broke before I could finish paying the installments. Due to the pandemic, my son is in great need of this computer to pursue his studies and I currently cannot afford an additional payment. Your assistance to our family would be an incredible blessing!

Hi everyone, my name is Lissette. I am 19 years old and I have been a disciple for 4 and a half years. I am requesting help because these past few months it has been very difficult to carry out my studies. My sister and I have to take turns using the one laptop that we own as a family. Since I am majoring in digital media, my files also take up a lot of space and it is very difficult for us to do our work quickly.

With COVID still being a great threat, my school is currently providing virtual sessions and having a dependable laptop is more important than ever. Your help towards my education would be incredibly helpful. I thank you so much for your support!
