Verse of the week

adventA voice of one calling: “In the desert prepare the way for the Lord, make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.”

Isaiah 40 v 3

Advent is a time when we prepare ourselves to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas – the birth of Jesus Christ. It is an opportunity to check to see if we are doing all the things that will help us to be ready to receive Jesus when He comes again.  It is a time when we focus on hope, love, joy and peace.

hurricanexmatthewHurricane Matthew, the most powerful storm to hit the Caribbean for a decade, has left hundreds of thousands of people in Haiti in desperate need. The destruction and loss of life have been exacerbated by continuing bad weather limiting access and a fragile infrastructure still recovering from previous disasters.

BMS World Mission has been in touch with partners on the ground to find out the most helpful way they can respond to the hurricane, and the provision of cholera treatment was identified as one of the most urgent needs.

On the 12th October, they agreed a grant of £22,150 to help towards treatment for 1,200 cholera patients over the next six months. This treatment will be provided through a hospital on the south-west tip of Haiti, serving people hit by the heart of Hurricane Matthew.

bmsxlogoxOur shop slot money for the foreseeable future will go to BMS World Mission to assist them in this vital work.

Please pray that BMS, in partnership with people on the ground, would be able to prevent the devastating wave of cholera deaths that could be a natural outcome of this disaster.
