Asking for help can be difficult. We don’t want to be burdensome to other people. Or we fear being turned down. Whatever the reason, it can be challenging to say “help” when we really need it.
About a year ago, my family needed help. My wife needed to travel for some extended time to help with a family emergency. It was a busy work season, our three young kids needed caring for, and we didn’t know how we were going to make all of life work. We prayed to the Lord for provision, and then I sent an email to some people at church and let them know we were in need. Meals and childcare were provided. A deacon at church coordinated other means of care. We experienced God’s abundant provision from so many helping hands.
When people reach out to Hope for counseling, they are saying they need help. Something in life is hard, or burdensome, or isn’t working and they need direction. There are some who contact us who also need financial assistance. They are in desperate need for counseling but do not have the financial resources to cover the cost.
As a ministry, we never want to turn someone away from receiving counseling because of finances. Through the generosity of donors over our six-year history, we have always been able to provide scholarship funds to those who need financial assistance.
I would like to ask for your help today. 50% of our annual donations are given in December. These donations help us provide Christ-centered, biblically based counseling to those who cannot otherwise afford the help they need.
Would you prayerfully consider making a year-end gift to Hope? Donations are vital to providing these counseling scholarships. You can make a gift online today on our giving page.
We are grateful for your partnership. Thank you for helping bring the Hope of Christ to Life for so many.
