WAW Wednesday ... "Summer is on! Pray! Give! Go!"

"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: "Summer is on! Pray! Give! Go!"

Dear Friends,

This month I’ve been catching up on all I’ve missed while on Sabbatical; and I’m even more convinced that God is not only using The Word at Work in mighty ways today, but that He has great plans for our future!

Thank you for standing with us financially so that we are able to link the people of God to the causes that matter to God. Our partners in Belize are working hard to bring hope to the hopeless and help to those who cannot help themselves.

Just last week we were encouraged by the progress our friends at Eben-Ezer are making in the Burial Grounds. Dreams for a new building that will hold all of the children who matter to God in that area are being realized. The rooms were overflowing at worship last week!

We know this ministry matters to God and we are grateful for the church partners and individuals from the U.S. who have come alongside this community of faith. We’re excited to see relationships continue to grow!

In Belize, and in our U.S. office, our TWAW team is preparing for the arrival of many groups over the next 2 months. Team members are anxious to renew friendships; our friends in Belize are also anxious to see their friends and see how God will move during their time together. And God will use His people to care and provide:

     Progress on church buildings and homes;
     Physicians and nurses will provide care and compassion at medical clinics;
     Youth leaders will be poured into as they prepare for a reverse mission trip to the U.S.;
     Teams will meet new partners and pray about where God is leading them to serve long-term;
     and those are just the things we have planned! What will God do? We can’t wait to see!

And now I invite you to play your part.

     You know giving to TWAW is a smart investment of your charitable dollars.
     You know how much you have to invest.
     But you DON’T how much you should pledge,
     Until you pray and ask.

We are anxious to hear what comes out of your prayers. Feel free to email me back – or use this card and send it in.

We’ve reached 30% of our annual goal as of today!

Please Pray if you’ve not made a commitment and Give as you are led; and, Go with us to Belize soon! Together we are the Word at Work!

Tim Tam
