Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus!

The Church is the hope of the world. In a time of physical or emotional distress, people panic easily because the foundation of what they have based their world upon is shaken. Great financial loss, physical sickness, or loss of loved ones leaves people not knowing where to turn for stability. The people of God have a unique perspective to remind others that our greatest hope is in the forgiveness of sins, resurrection of the dead, and life eternal. For centuries, the travel of the Gospel has been accompanied by the people of God building churches, schools, and hospitals, because God cares deeply about our spiritual health, mental health, and physical health. When people see that we care about physical needs they are often willing to address spiritual needs.
