I recently read a book (Sun Stand Still) that really challenged my way of thinking about my faith. It forced me to ask, “Am I serving God within the limits I can accomplish, or am I serving through Audacious Faith and expecting Him to accomplish the impossible?”. Honestly, I didn’t like my answer. The author of the book talks about the desire to see God accomplish something so exponentially amazing that it would leave no doubt who deserved the credit. That made me stop and reflect on what He has accomplished through Trinity HOPE. As we start this new school year, we humbly celebrate 20 years of ministry, serving God by serving the children throughout Haiti. During that time, more than 38,500,000 meals have been served in the name of Jesus. We have grown from one school to 141 schools, feeding 28,000 meals every school day. We have invested close to $10 million dollars into the Haitian economy and touched tens-of-thousands of families. By my definition, that’s exponentially amazing, and we give God ALL the credit and glory!
And God isn’t finished with us yet. We believe God has put on our heart the challenge to trust Him to “accomplish the impossible.” Our vision is that over the next few years we see Trinity HOPE feeding 100,000 meals per school day. Frankly, even with my wildest imagination, I believe that is humanly impossible. But Jesus’ own words in Luke 18:27 assures us, “What is impossible with man is possible with God.”
The author of Sun Stand Still had another compelling quote in his book. He said, “If the size of your vision isn’t intimidating to you, there’s a good chance it’s insulting to God.” Wow! That got my attention. Psalm 37:5 tells us, “Commit your ways to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act.” We walk in faith as we boldly take these next steps…totally trusting Him to lead us and to provide. That doesn’t mean we sit idle while we wait on Him. God is expecting us to work hard and to fully commit our very best efforts to Him. We are ready to do that with joy, led by Audacious Faith!
As we start our third decade of ministry with big bold plans, we hope you share in our passion to reach thousands of more children in the name of Jesus. In the near future, we will be revealing many new opportunities for people to continue to walk beside us and support our efforts. In the meantime, one of the best ways you can help us now is to pray for our leadership to clearly hear God’s plans and have the expectant faith to confidentially move forward. In addition, I’d like to personally ask you to boldly share more about the ministry of Trinity HOPE with at least 1-2 people you’re associated with. I’m confident God will use your words to open doors. Thank you for your help.
Trinity HOPE has truly been blessed over the past 20 years. Each of you are a huge part of that success and we thank God for our generous supporters. We look forward to seeing where God leads us as we start our third decade of service together. May God Continue to bless you and your family!
