:: FOREIGN MISSIONS

From the very first deployment of Jesus’ disciples, Christians have felt the compelling urge to speed the gospel to the ends of the earth. At Living Hope Family Church we are no different. We believe that the great commission (Matthew 28: 19 -20) is part of our direct purpose as believers, and must be a priority for us as a church. It is our goal at LHFC to inspire average Christians to do extraordinary things by providing them with opportunities to participate in foreign missions and by sponsoring ongoing works in these far away places.

Looking beyond ourselves into the lives of our Christian brothers and sisters worldwide, we are able to gain a perspective that changes us forever. Many things at home that we have taken for granted for years become fresh again. We are overwhelmed by lessons of faith and perseverance from those who do not share the same freedom as we do. We discover the joy of giving ourselves away, and our personal significance in life is no longer in question.

As a church we have sponsored missions in South Africa, Mozambique, Latvia and the Philippines. We have participated in medical missions, evangelistic missions, building projects, food and clothing distribution amongst the poor, and the financing of local churches and projects. We encourage continued correspondence between members of our congregation and those in the mission field, especially those who labor in the spiritual harvest.

:: PLANNING TO GO ON A MISSION

Life’s greatest joys come from obeying the word of our Lord Jesus Christ. Just before He ascended into heaven He left us this charge; “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. We believe that every Christian should go on at least one mission trip in their lives.

Planning to go is one of the most important decisions of your life. The experience can be
life transforming and even life re-directing, but it’s all worth it. We need to see the needs of others. Their need for the basics of life, which we take for granted. Their need for the truth and love of God, which we carry in our hearts. The need they have for encouragement from those who have so much and who are willing to share. And we need them. We need them to show us that real joy and happiness is not found in the abundance of our possessions and the comfort of our western lifestyles, but in the simplicity of devotion to Christ and to one another. Don’t hesitate; don’t fear, but answer the call and plan to go.

:: STAYING AT HOME

Although not everyone can join the ‘Away Team’ on a short-term mission trip, there is ample opportunity for all to participate in other ways. Whatever reason you may have to stay home, you can still be an integral part of every trip. You can raise funds for the team or give towards their expenses or their project. You can commit to pray daily for a traveling team or individual. You can help the team prepare and boost their moral. You can even offer to take care of their pets while they are away! We are a team, and both those who stay and those who go are fellow team-members, equally important and each one vital to the mission.
