The Word at Work is a ministry that mobilizes churches and individuals to answer God's call to minister to those in need," writes Rev. Tim Tam, Director of the Amarillo, Texas-based ministry. "Through our relationships, God reveals needs and opportunities for service. As we come along side the poor, new friendships develop and doors for ministry open. As we serve, God provides the resources to supply for the needs he reveals."
WAW Wednesday: "Sell Tacos ..."
Here is just one of the many reasons why you love to support TWAW:
We connect you to causes that matter to God, causes that are near to the heart of God. And you will be hard pressed to find a cause more important than this.
Sell tacos, not children!
Cute slogan, but it’s also the Battle cry of one of our partner ministries in Belize.
It points to the serious, rather, to the horrifying reality of human trafficking and the commercial sexual exploitation of children.
CDF (Child Development Foundation) is a Christian Organization on the front lines and they’re busy fighting the battle at every level.
• Drafting legislation to protect children
• Educating judges, Police, School officials and parents
• Holding sensitization sessions with children in schools across the country
• Rescuing and caring for victims
• Helping with recovery and reintegration
But there is one essential piece of their multi-pronged strategy that is lacking. They need a shelter for housing victims that are in danger and a peaceful Christ centered setting for the difficult path of recovery.
Gomer House is the name of this project and it is well underway. Our friend and former TWAW Board Member Cindy Wall and her husband, Lonnie (a gifted contractor), of Clovis, NM, have responded to God's prompting and they're preparing to relocate to Belize to oversee the next phase of construction!
You are invited to join God in his work here.
