My dear Care-Givers-in-training in the Vineyard of We Care Ministry;
Life without a friend is death without a witness:
It is with undiluted joy of the Lord that I warmly welcome you to the foundation class of We Care Ministry, this ministry is dear to the heart of our Lord Jesus Christ, our leading light. It is also dear to my heart and the heart of my wonderful wife and co-worker in the vineyard of the Lord.
To call the ministry the heartbeat of Christ will be stating the obvious that is so clear to see. Christ himself, our role model, set the perfect example when he left the Throne in Heaven to come down to earth to save our sinful world. It still remains the matter of the heart: out of which unending stream of compassion and unconditional love ceaselessly flows. It's the kind of love we can also draw from as a source of sustenance and followership as we are born to follow the thread of our Heavenly Father's path:
For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life-John 3:16
It is still with the same revealing light that we should also see the pearl of valuable insight from the scriptures that should set before us the perfect image of who we will be in this our missionary journey that has self-sacrifice as its compass and driving force: 'Greater love hath no man than this who lay down his life for his friends.'
Many are called for this selfless mission, but only few, such as your good selves, are chosen to be partakers with Christ in helping to redeem the mind-bending situation of human condition, especially the down-under plight of the great multitude of the needy in our world today. A look around us will seem to look as if people are becoming weary of doing good, leaving a large swathe of the poor unloved, un-catered-for and left of their own devices to make a living out of nothing.
YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF HE WORLD. A CITY THAT IS SET ON A HILL CANNOT BE HIDDEN……MATTHEW 5:16
SO 'LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN, THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN'
As both fate and faith would have it, you are in good company of the group that is blazing the trail in good-doing; going places, day by day doing good, reaching out to touch and transform lives, helping to set the captives in the prison free by feeding them the gospel of liberation in Christ Jesus, rehabilitating them after serving terms, and empowering them to get a life and a means of livelihood that will help them rediscover their manifest destiny and becoming change-agents, too, going forward! Remember, it is not the great things you do that actually matter, but the small things you do with great heart of love, devotion and unwavering commitment! Indeed, the purpose of life is a life of purpose that seeks to help those who are in dire need, lifting them up from the gutters of life to the summit of hope reborn!
This group, We Care Ministry, also seeks out tossed-away babies and orphans at home to help steer them through the right tracks of tender loving care so they can get back what the enemies and star-hunters are hell-bent in stealing from them: their colourful glory.
So generous are the hearts of members that they always have a space to take good care of all good sorts who need a listening pair of ears, eyes and sympathetic hearts and helping hands to lift them from the dunghill of life to the pinnacle of glory: This involves the rehabilitation of the young ones long gone astray, who would have been lost, beyond redemption, to the streets or red-lights districts, so they can have another life that will give glory to the name of their creator, who delights always in the happiness of his creatures.
By the same illuminating token, senior citizens are brought to the fold to enjoy the twilight of their years in joy, harmony and fulfilment through the undying bond of fellowship We Care Givers forge with them daily without ceasing!
It is in order to create a paradise on earth for this diverse and great multitudes, with unique needs that We Care Ministry has been allocated 7 hectares of virgin land in Atan-Otta for the Ministry to develop into a wonder world where the citizens can live, interact, work, worship, make a living and prosper unhindered and unmolested under an atmosphere of liberty in Christ Jesus. Work has reached an advanced stage to carve out a multipurpose complex where the M FM WE CARE citizens can learn and be proficient in such trades and crafts as farming, fishing, automobile-engineering; catering, confectionery and hospitality; animal husbandry; GSM /ICT proficiency; horology/ watch/clock repairs and such courses that can empower the 'citizens' rehabilitate them and help transform them into positive change agents in our society. The complex will also have hostels; Orphanages; (Snr Homes for Senior Citizens as well as a clinic; a chapel, and a hall for celebrating memorable moments and milestones!
In this mission, where there is no intermission, you will never fail to recognise this jewel of priceless wisdom: ' You will find as you look back upon your life , that the moments that stand out, the moment you have really lived, are the moments you have done things in the spirit of love. Never forget that love is the most powerful force on earth.
May your life continue to positively affect humanity for good, better and best for the improvement of human condition and to the greater glory of God.
