CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION FOR
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT (CFCD)

Report -- January, 2012.

 

Once again, God has shown us his grace and we have entered the new year 2012. The past year had a lot of challenges but I thank God who enabled all of us to go through it. The world over, people were crying not knowing what to do. But God has his ways of administering the world. When you reach a point of surrender, that’s where God begins from to do his works. Each year that passes, man develops new hope. The hungry man gets new hope to have food, the poor man gets hope to become rich and the sick man gets hope for medication. That’s the hope we have in 2012! In our outreaches, we equally have hope to grow and tackle the areas which are lacking in our programs.

We have hope to expand our area of coverage to distribute drugs and preach the gospel to the needy sick in other hospitals and to look at sustainability for our programs. In all this we need your prayers and support. The partnership we have with hope4kids is excellent and we hope to continue as we strengthen our activities to bring hope to the down trodden and wretched of the earth but who are so important in the eyes of God because in heaven there will be no rich or poor, educated or none educated. All of us, once we go to be with the Lord, we become equal in his eyes. That’s why its worthy of us to fulfill the ministry that God has given us to serve his people in all ways without discrimination.

Have you ever thought of bringing hope to those in need? 2012 is the year to do it. If realy God has blessed you with all that you need, have you ever realized that in some corners of the world (particularly Africa) people are still dying of preventable and curable diseases without simple antibiotics? Others are dying of hunger and others lack shelter and clothing. As ministers of the gospel how do we reach out to them? Is it enough to tell them that God loves you and take heart you are going to heaven without taking care of them? As Christians, the bible does not encourage us to be self centered. God loves a cheerful giver and indeed it’s more blessed to give than to receive. That’s why the bible tells us in the book of James chapter 2:15-16.

Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, “go I wish you well, keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

This is a big challenge to every Christian. As the bible says, God will never leave himself without a witness. He has used many to support the hurting and hungry, particularly the American public through hope4kids and many lives have been touched spiritually, physically, materially and in many other ways. However, a lot still is desired to be done to create a more lasting impact in our ministry. We have not only stoped at drug distribution and feeding the seek. We have preached the gospel and many souls have come to Christ in the areas where we serve. I mean hospital and prisons. Christians and gospel ministers this is the time for us to do something about bringing many souls to Christ and to reach out to those who are hurting and need medicine, food, clean water and clothing.

I always tell friends that life in this world is short. The bible tells us the years we can live is seventy or eighty. To go beyond is suffering and troubles. What legacy will you live behind after you die? Some look at the extensive wealth (which they never used to preach the gospel) as a legacy. We as Christians should leave a legacy of the souls that we preach. The bible tells us in the book of Daniel that all those who turn people from wicked ways will shine.

Daniel, chapter 12: 1-3. At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people –everyone whose name is found written in the book will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.

 

Prison and Hospital Outreaches.

Each month we visit these facilities, God touches the lives of many. We pride in seeing the people having a better life and accepting the Lord as their savior. This month, we have done our normal work of feeding the sick, distributing drugs and continued with our hygiene and sanitation campaign like painting the maternity ward but this has not deterred us from preaching the gospel. The prison fellowship is strong and many whom God touches and are faithful get released when they are in good health.

The testimonies we get is that they are strong in the Lord. Our carrying a material blessing has continued and God is doing great things. The malnutrition ward is being supported with the foods they need to come up with a good formula for for treating the malnourished children and we are continuing to visit the severe malnourished in the villages whom we provide milk and medicine. In our spiritual outreaches, many people are accepting the Lord. This month alone 55 people came to accept the Lord as their savior.
