The Alliance Year-End Offering

At the close of this year, we share the privilege of showing Jesus’ love to displaced, marginalized, and suffering people in the United States and around the world. Your gift enables Alliance workers to expand their ministries and establish long-term communities of faith in the world’s most hopeless places.

We WillLove

Jesus’ instruction to us was clear: provide food for hungry, drink for the thirsty, shelter for the stranger, clothing for the naked, and companionship for the imprisoned. What does love look like in the Alliance family? It looks like this: Matthew 25 lived out every day.

Rebuilding Lives

“We’re called to selfless love, sacrificial love—the love of Jesus,” says Pastor Bob Witt of Wallace Community Church. That’s exactly the love he and his Alliance congregation have shown an elderly couple in Wallace, Nebraska. With others’ help and donations, the small church is building a new home for a family who lost theirs to a flood. But that’s not all. Wanting to extend this same love to the ends of the earth, this congregation of less than 100 people gave nearly 23 percent of its income last year to the Great Commission Fund.

Healing the Sick

CAMA workers in Guinea, Africa, know the hard side of love firsthand after experiencing a particularly difficult year in 2014. CAMA’s Hope Clinic had to close its doors for six months due to the Ebola outbreak, and one of its co-founders was murdered while teaching people how to prevent the disease from spreading. And yet, these setbacks have strengthened the staff’s resolve to carry out their mission.

In addition to Hope Clinic, CAMA workers partner with Alliance churches in Guinea to care for those who have lost loved ones to Ebola. They go to each village touched by the devastating disease and offer a simple death greeting and a modest sum of money, the accepted cultural means of showing sympathy. The result of honoring this culture’s custom has been remarkable. Read more.

Restoring Hope

As a young child, Oumar in Mali had a large tumor growing on his chin and jaw that consumed the lower part of his face. Abu, Oumar’s dad, had done everything to help his son, but nothing worked. But then he heard about the Alliance’s Koutiala Hospital from an evangelism team of Malian pastors and lay leaders, and he knew help was on the way.

When Oumar and his mom, Sétou, came to Koutiala for treatment, they were prayed for countless times and heard Bible stories and the gospel. Oumar accepted Jesus as his Savior, and later, both his parents, Abu and Sétou, also decided to follow Jesus the rest of their lives. Read the entire story.

We Will Love

Jesus has invited us to be the hands and the feet, the tear and the hug, the word and the gift. With more than 2,000 churches here in the States and hundreds of workers living and serving among 70 of the world’s least reached peoples, we have the privilege of sharing His love and compassion with a hurting and lost world. May this pursuit of love ultimately be a pursuit of Jesus Himself.
