HopeNYC is preparing to make this the best Christmas ever…for children overseas.

Build an Ark was the theme of HopeNYC’s 2017 Toy Drive! Hopers picked up a hammer and worked together to raise the funds to provide tons of toys (possibly an Ark-full)

I noticed the genuine cheerfulness in giving until the drive was over. Putting a smile on a child’s face has always been an important mission at HopeNYC. A child may be receiving their first toy this year. The toys will be off to the Caribbean this Christmas: Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and Belize! High quality popular brand new toys. As someone would say “Toys you would buy for your own children.”

What makes this year even more exciting is that some of the Hopers will be going to the

countries to distribute these toys in person.

Special gifts were given to every participant of the Toy Drive so they won’t forget the time they got to Build An Ark.

HopeNYC has big plans for Christmas even in New York! Read my previous blog about the Christmas parade. Look out for info this upcoming month on www.HopeNYC.com or on the Facebook Page: http://www.Facebook.com/HopeNYC

How’ve you been?

Goodmorning! It is 8:15am!

It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted something & I do miss my pals here on wordpress. I have been seeing your new posts in my emails. Instresting, reads, interesting titles,  interesting photos & interesting mini sermons (For the those writing faith blogs). As the new mails flood my inbox I admire your detication & commitment for your blogs! If you are writing something to inspire & help make a significant change in the lives of others, I hope your audience grows in numbers & those around the globe will notice your blog.

An update on HopeNYC

HopeNYC, How has it been? These past couple of weeks has been so far some of the most amazing ever! Just being filled up with the word on Wenesdays. Being full of fire & enery with the teens on Friday. Seeing the colors of dancers & the finely dressed people worshipping on a Sunday. I am just so glad to be apart of this church & know the friends I met there. Sometimes living life isn’t easy …. even being a christian & striving to follow our perfect Lord & savior gets real challeging at times too but going to HopeNYC to grow, worship, learn, pray, work, praise, testify love, fellowship… It really lightens the LOAD & helps me more to trust God to remove it, break me through it & make it all better. Many have testified that they have needed hope & they found it at HopeNYC. If any of you bloggers get to visit New York City, I urge you to visit at least one services. I visited the Famous Statue of Liberty, Toys R us & been to Time Square so many times but they all can’t compare to ONE visit at HopeNYC Church. You won’t be a stranger at all because you will surely feel at home.

Yesterday 

Brooklyn Breakthrough

HopeNYC church has a heart for helping. There is no language or location barrier, I’ve seen Hopers visit other boroughs & fly across the world! A couple of weeks ago, HopeNYC helped Harlem for Thanksgiving but did not stop there! HopeNYC visited a homeless shelter in Brooklyn last week to not just prepare a Thanksgiving meal but a Thanksgiving Feast! Hope served dozens of turkeys, chicken, endless slices of baked ham, full trays of mashed potatoes, yummy mac & cheese, various desserts & so much more! Hope did not only provide a freshly prepared lunch but they also gave out groceries for Thanksgiving day! Hearts were touched, Kids enjoyed picking out their favorite pies & families were blessed. I saw burdens being lifted as the church made life easier for these hard working parents. The staff who cooked & served this feast were not only adults. Children, teenagers, 20 somethings, also worked hard to prepare a dish & show up to serve! HopeNYC is really one of the few places in New York where you would see a young one so interested & selflessly working hard to help someone else.The church as whole desire to follow Jesus & be His hands & feet. That is our heart!

So many people were blessed with food, groceries, & winter coats!

Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This! Hey You! Read This!

Lets bring a bigger breakthrough to this world! I encourage you to volunteer at your local church or organization just to help others!

Especially

  •  On Major Holidays
  • If you are in charge of a group, club or ministry! Anyone can do this!

Not in charge?

  •  That is Ok! If you have the heart you can start!
  •  Formulate a plan with your friends!  Where to go, who to call, what to give away or do. There are elderly homes, homeless shelters, hospitals… see what’s in your city.
  • If you are currently in school or college you can find out if they are already hosting a mission. If not then you can start it! I’ve seen people start a simple harry potter club…. Be the one to make a real difference! Start a club or a day event to help others!
  • Be brave ( I’m shy to approach people but this is a small price to pay to change someone’s world.)

Vision

  • With your own eye, who do you see suffer?
  • What would make that person feel better?
  • Would it be a bag of groceries? toys? a holiday feast?  prayer? a coat? a free manicure? Christmas carols?….
  • Without a vision, You would not know where to go & where to steer your group. Think about who can you help?

Make a decision to help your world!  Being involved & changing someone’s life is so fantastic but the true reason for serving others will always be that it is God’s purpose for us.

Take a good look at your hands, they are made to work! 🙂

Praying for the people & the feast.
