"We are reaching to meet the needs,and making a difference! Compassion for people is the power of fellowship.”
Lazarus Restoration Ministries, Inc. would like to thank the many compassionate people who have helped to make this a wonderfully successful year! To perform any outreach ministry, one must have a heart-felt desire, or compassion, to impact the lives of people with great needs – people who often have lost hope, exhausted resources, made mistakes, or even run out of faith. LRM sponsors, donors, and other supporters have proven that they have the compassion needed to reach people who have such needs.
You see, sometimes a person needs food, yet at other times he/she may need more joy. There are times when the greatest need is shelter, but sometimes the strongest need could simply be having a little more peace. LRM reaches out to people who are hurting, confused, or maybe even need help finding the way out of a bad situation.
Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, and the comfort and hope of the scriptures, we work to plant positive seeds into the lives of people. Do you know what we’ve found? Many of the homeless people we encounter and serve have great potential for success! They had needs, but they also have goals and desires. They have plans for both the short and long-term future. If shown a little compassion, and provided specific resources and encouragement, they have great potential to be successful. The question is, who has the time in today’s world to be compassionate? Who has the time to stop and show their concern for others?
It is important to take the time. We should never take for granted the moments that God gives us to make a difference in people’s lives. Truly, it is only what we do for Him that will last. When we show compassion to people who are in need, we are demonstrating our love for God.
What a fellowship to be among those who have a heart of compassion for others. May God grant each of you with the tools, resources, and anointing needed to meet every one of your needs, and the overflow blessings you need to continue helping to meet the needs of others!
