CEO Tanya Nace of World Hope International (Canada) shared this inspiring update…
Thank you to our amazing donors! Because of you, we sent over $4M dollars worth of medicine to Moldova on this 747 (upper left) and more will be flown over this next week. We have partnered with MAP, Lift Non-Profit Logistics, UPS, Globus Health and the Nazarene Church as we continue to respond to the invasion of Ukraine. Our response will continue through the provision of supplies, medicines, partnering on the ground as needed and helping with the protection of trafficked individuals. We will keep updating you as it progresses. If you have not yet been able to give to this emergency response, you can CLICK HERE to provide support today!

- Ed Love’s team partnered with Jon Wiest (through Groundswell) and created a version that any church can use at any time. LIVE SENT is a timely resource to help people clarify who they are in Christ and how they can use their gifts to pioneer a new mission that will reach people who are far from God. In this five-session course, participants will learn how to discover their calling and discern the voice of God in your life and ministry. Jesus told his disciples in John 20:21, “As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” It’s time for every follower of Christ to discover their calling and “live sent!”
