Partnership Missions: Hunger Ministry
The Southern Baptist World Hunger Fund is now Global Hunger relief. Click here for information on the name change.
There is also a new website, available at http://globalhungerrelief.com
Southern Baptist missionaries and volunteers are offering nourishment for the body and soul. And every Southern Baptist can have a part in those ministries through gifts to Global Hunger Relief.
While Christ-followers, including Southern Baptists, are doing something about hunger in the U.S. and around the world, we could be doing a lot more. In fact, we can be assured that God expects us to do much more. He expects us to demonstrate an urgency to pray, to give, and to minister on behalf of those who are hungry–both physically and spiritually.
When will you get personal about hunger? If we take God’s Word seriously, the malnourished and hungry are our problem. Those who are afflicted were made in the image of God. He cares about them, which means we are to care about their welfare as well.
