Ministries Making a Difference

Church of the Nazarene congregations in the Republic of Paraguay have partnered with El Pastor Foundation to open five cafeterias to provide hot meals to needy families who face joblessness as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Between them, the cafeterias distribute more than 1,300 plates a week. 

For Haiti With Love launched a program to provide tiny homes for single moms in Haiti. Starter Homes was designed as a spinoff of the larger Pilgrim Houses program that builds larger houses for homeless families. Pilgrim Houses cost between $10,000-$15,000 to build, according to Mission Network News, whereas a tiny Starter Home costs between $2,000-$5,000. “They won’t be anything like the [Pilgrim Houses] that we normally build,” For Haiti’s Eva DeHart said. “But they will be secure, clean, comfortable shelters for these girls and their babies.”

This past weekend, Mercy Chefs celebrated 15 years of serving hot, chef-prepared meals from their mobile kitchens to victims of natural disasters. In that time, Mercy Chefs Founder Gary LeBlanc says his teams have served 15 millions meals to people in need. Saturday (June 5), the organization live streamed their 15-year celebration event from Nashville, Tennessee. 

Hymn writing duo Keith and Kristyn Getty of Getty Music are heading up their annual Sing! Global 2021 worship conference at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, September 13-15. Spring registration rates end Thursday, June 10, and include the option to attend in person or online. Guest speakers include John Piper, David Platt, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Trillia Newbell. The Gettys describe the conference as “an opportunity to reset congregational singing, restore our hope, and reunite the church in Christ-centered worship.”
