I had the opportunity to serve on a mission trip to Albania coordinated by Convoy of hope Europe, We participated in their "adopt a community program". Their team worked closely with our church to plan and setup multiple events and activities so that we can have a lasting effect on people from a very poor community. COH's dedicated staff did the advance work needed to maximize our efforts when our team hit the ground. They helped us to develop close relationships with Missionaries in the area, local Albanian pastors and most importantly with the people in the community. The logistical support they gave us help us to accomplish a tremendous amount of work which we did side by side with the community that we were serving. This developed lifelong bonds with our Albanian friends. Our church is looking forward to returning in Sept. of this year to take on a new project and see our friends again
I think of you everyday. You are so courageous to get 'right in there', anywhere in the world where people are starting to lose 'hope', the only thing that might sustain them 'till the calvary arrives' (if it ever does!) Bless you for your powerful faith. Your every action speaks of the love of a very powerful Lord. Thank you!
I'm a youth pastor in Bonner Springs Ks. and my wife and I took our kids to youth convention in Wichita. We were in charge of the "prayer tent" and food distribution areas. We got to pray with many people in need and see souls saved. We were so blessed to be apart of this ministry. God really moved in the people that came trough. At the end of the day and we still had lots of food left over so we went tto the parking lot to some people that were getting ready to leave and had them pull their car over by the truck. This lady pulled up and we started litterally filling her car with bags of groceries. She got out bawling and hugging the necks of the youth loading her car. She told us that some of her family had moved in with her and she didn't know how she was going to feed them. She prayed that morning "God help me feed my family" She was driving by and decided to see what was going on at the church we were at. GOD ANSWERED HER PRAYER!!!
I had the opporunity to serve in a community outreach event in rural Missouri and what an awesome experience! Convoy of Hope organized hundreds of workers, supplies, resources, and logistics to efficiently and effectively minister to thousands of families. The range of services included personal care, health screening, social services, nutrition/food, spiritual, and family entertainment. It was a blessing for both the workers and the recipients!
I've seen Convoy of Hope grow from a samll start up to the organizaiton that exists today. They provide disaster relief both domestically and internationally, as well as outreaches to often poverty-stricken areas.
Convoy of Hope is truly a blessing from a living God. They are all about meeting the needs of the less fortunet people of our world. May God continue to use and bless the folks that make C of Hope a great service company!!!!
I know that my contributions will be used in my name for the greatest good of the people who are helped. They go in my place.
I was a small part of a huge team that ran a community outreach in Missouri. It was incredible to see so many people being blessed...and so many people doing the blessing!
I served as an intern with Convoy of Hope in 2009 from June-July and still continue to serve with them when I can. Convoy of Hope is truly blessed by the hand of the Lord. Learning about their organization and those who began it was truly a life changing experience. I know first hand that they are financially responsible non-profit organization, and they are very trustworthy. Each dollar donated is stretched to around seven dollars of product. They reach out to their community in the Ozarks, as well as around the entire United States. Though they are not limited to the USA. They have served through outreaches and distributions across the earth, and their disaster relief team is top notch! I could go on and on...
It was a great time. I was out of my comfrot zone most of the day, but put the day in God's hands. Praying for the people who came through was fulfilling and to see how gracious they were even in this time of need was amazing. It makes my problems seem like nothing.
