But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
- 1 John 3:17
Ministry of Mercy
It is the love of God in the soul that gives the impetus to help those in need. Turning away from people in need when it is in our power to help, makes a mockery of Christian principles; but only giving bread without giving the water of life in Jesus Christ is a violation of the primary calling of Christian missions: "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations." We do the greatest possible good to our fellow man when the Ministry of the Word is brought together with the Ministry of Mercy.
About this Project
Come Over and Help is partnering with a number of ministries that reach out to the needy both within and outside of the church. For example, the Daily Bread program in Turda, Romania provides a home-cooked meal 5 days per week to the needy as well as a monthly food parcel, distributed by diaconal workers.
Come Over & Help is also supporting a number of at-risk Christian families across Eastern Europe and Russia with regular help via their local church. Indeed, many of the programs supported by COAH have a humanitarian aid element to them.
