The end of each year provides an opportunity to reflect on the overwhelming graciousness of our loving Father who has blessed us so that we may be a blessing to others.
In connection with our Year of Justice, Crossroads is highlighting two ministries this year-end that are working to bring justice in the area of sanctity of life, in both the city and the nations, as well as highlighting our Afrin Kurdish Bible Translation Project.
The mission at LIFE International is to uphold the value of all human life worldwide. They equip, empower, and release global Christian leaders to proclaim the infinite value of God’s image in all people. At LIFE, they are passionate about helping people and communities affected by the devaluation of life and partner with thousands of ministry partners to pursue the expansion of God’s Kingdom. Scripture tells us to “rescue those being led away to death” (Proverbs 24:11) and LIFE lives this out by partnering with those that provide compassionate care in diverse ways: crisis pregnancy guidance, maternity homes, orphanages, child-feeding programs, and more.
PRC of Grand Rapids seeks to help those who were facing unplanned pregnancies and make their situations less overwhelming and easier to manage. They provide women in Grand Rapids who think they might be pregnant with free & confidential services, including up-to-date information on local support programs, referrals, and material assistance. Families in the Greater Grand Rapids area receive love, prayer support, and consultation on marriage and family issues as well as referrals for community resources. PRC provides items like diapers, formula, baby clothes, maternity clothes, as well as one-on-one mentoring.
We’re continuing with our Kurdish Bible Project! Annie and her team in Canada have completed the New Testament up to Thessalonians. So many Afrini Kurds are being impacted as they hear the Word of God for the first time. Annie and her team often receive feedback from people who have given their lives to the Lord and people who are growing in their relationship with God. Many contact them asking for more and more chapters and more and more books of the Bible. We’re hoping to partner with Annie in completing the rest of the New Testament in the next year!
We trust that the Holy Spirit will lead you in how to participate and if you have any questions, please reach out to Matt Stowell ( ), Jeremiah Weismann ( )!
