A food program was started this year
when we were approached by Pastors with the hunger of so many people, in their
villages and churches, due to the devastation that hit us from Hurricane Matthew, in
October 2016. The hurricane took down many fruit trees and land crops. Keep in mind, not
only are the fruit trees and land crops a source of food for the people, it's also their
way of earning money and making a living. The land doesn't give crops for almost a
year. Once a banana tree gives fruit, a new tree has to grow to bear another bunch of
bananas, this takes time. Coconut trees were taken down by the powerful winds as if they
were toothpicks, time is needed for regrowth of those trees as well. As a result of the
hurricane and so many people asking their Pastors for help, Heart of the Father
Ministry reached out with bags of rice and beans to help feed families. Thanks to all your
donations and willingness to be a blessing, we have reached out and feed hundreds of families
with rice and beans. We also traveled up into the mountains where we gave a church
community rice, beans and boxes of clothes to assist them, from the devastation they
encountered from the hurricane.
Later in the year, Heart of the Father
Ministry reached out to a small Christian school/ orphanage with meals for the
children as they attended school. These children are some of the poorest of the poor, their
families simply do not have the money for them to attend other schools. This school
allows 36 children in our area to receive an education even though they do not have the
Building projects continue out in Houck and
the roof on the Prince home is slow moving, but in progress.
The WORD continues to go out into the
hearts and lives of the people through Pastor conferences, Bible studies and preaching on Sundays.
We look forward to getting a few more studies started soon!
God has placed within our hearts the desire to
share His abundant love with others. In revealing this love and grace of Father God, people
come to understand that His love can’t be earned or bought – but that it’s a free gift to all
who will reach out and take it. There is nothing that makes God love us more or less. God is not
concerned with where we’ve been. However, He is concerned with where we’re headed. Our passion is
to continue to preach of Father God’s unconditional love and the
truth of His word. We pray for others knowing that God hears our prayers and answers them according
to our faith and the power that is at work in us.
