“This can’t be done”
Do you know how many times I have heard this when working with as
many children as we do? When I came to New York over 40 years ago,
nobody believed we could do what we’ve done here and now all over the world.
When Nehemiah stood on the rubble of what used to be a wall of protection,
he had more than his share of resistance. But he had a decision to make.
In the face of constant criticism and discouragement,
he was determined to keep going.
He battled the same thingsthat you and I do. It doesn’t matter whether it’s family,
ministry, or a job, when they say, “It can’t be done,”
you can either get discouraged or you can become determined.
It’s your call!
When that man picked me up from the street corner and sent me to a Christian youth camp, even as he faced great personal adversity, that decision is now influencing the lives of hundreds of thousands of children. Those are the kinds of decisions that it’s going to take to rebuild a generation at a time like this. Nehemiah decided “The God of heaven will give us success. We his servants will start rebuilding ...” Will you make the decision to stand on the wall, to pick up a shovel and sword and rebuild with me?

‘Three years of failed harvests have left Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda facing a severe hunger crisis. It is my hope that through these meetings in parliament, the UK Government will better understand the challenges facing the region, what Tearfund and the local church is doing, and the crucial part they can play in alleviating the crisis.
‘A verse that is sustaining me is 1 Thessalonians 4:13: “Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope.” I lost my mum on 1 May, and was unable to attend the burial in Ethiopia, due to personal reasons. My grief is deep. However, this verse encourages me not to grieve like the rest of mankind, as I have a hope in the Lord that she will be with him. ‘Hope is something that gives us the energy to come out of stressful situations and inspires us to look forward and move on. At the moment, millions of people in the Horn of Africa are on the brink of famine. This situation breaks my heart, but it is not without hope.
A Lifeline For The Conflict-Weary In Ukraine
As bombs continue to rain down over cities across Ukraine, our teams are labouring around the clock, in collaboration with local churches, to purchase, transport, and distribute massive quantities of food and items such as hygiene kits, blankets, and warm clothing. Many are struggling to survive, like Oksana who fled violence in her hometown with her family and shared with us, “we need everything—because we have nothing.” A gift today can help to distribute emergency food and essential items to families in need like Oksana’s.
