Boxes, Bundles and the Feet that Bring Them

Hi Everyone!

Thank you for those who said “yes” and gave to the Grains of Grace Feeding Program in Haiti during the month of October! Because of the generous contributions, this fund went from only a 4 month supply ($1200 a month that feeds 94 families) to a 15 month supply!! Thank you!!

As we get closer to the end of the year, we have 3 other areas that are in need of attention. All three of these areas are a part of our Albania ministries that Step of Faith supports. We are asking for prayers for those who are directly affected through the Christmas Shoe Box ministry, the Bundles of Blessings food distribution  and the Pastoral / Staff Support.

Here is a brief description of these areas of need. All three of these areas are currently low in funding. If you would like to help, you can do so through our website using Paypal, or a check mailed to: Step of Faith Ministry / PO BOX 805 / BRICK, NJ 08723 

BOXES…

Step of Faith has been sending $5000 a year to help with the costs of trucks and fuel that distribute 5000 Christmas Shoeboxes to children in the 98 villages that Pastor Plator’s churches minister to. Many of these villages are remote, high in the mountains that surround the main church in Libonik. Most of the children that receive the shoeboxes are Muslims or atheists. However, the Gospel of Jesus is given to them within these boxes and many children are coming to Christ.

 

BUNDLES…

Bundles of Blessings food distribution started during covid when the mayor of Maliq asked Pastor Plator if he could help with humanitarian aid to many who were suffering. Step of Faith “stepped up” and started sending $3600 a quarter so that 24+ families can receive monthly food bundles. These families are very poor, many not knowing Jesus. Month after month these families are being ministered to by the staff from Pastor Plator’s church, led by Denis, a man of God who has a very compassionate heart to help.

 

THE FEET THAT BRING THEM…

 

 

 

 

Every quarter Step of Faith sends $5100 to help with both Pastoral and staff support. Without the many who are the hands and feet going out, evangelizing, bringing the Good News, distributing to those in need and pastoring in the churches, much of what is currently happening would be limited. There are many volunteers, but there are also many that God has raised up who are in a staff position so that they can do their ministry full time. There are approximately 71% Muslim and 27% atheist in Albania, leaving less than 2% Christians. There is a lot of work to be done and support to be given so that the Gospel can spread and lives can be changed.

Here is a short “Thank You” video from most of those who Step of Faith currently supports: https://youtu.be/fyY0mYexito

Bob Hager once told me… “If you have a need, make it known.” We appreciate your prayers and consideration in helping build back up these 3 vital areas of support within Step of Faith!

Blessings and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
