Thank You! Hope for New York’s Easter Sacrificial Offering

We praise God for the work He is doing through Hope for New York’s affiliate organizations, and we are so grateful to our congregants who gave generously and sacrificially to this work through the Easter Sacrificial Offering last month. 

 

On Easter Sunday, clients who have been helped by the work of HFNY’s affiliates shared stories of Gospel restoration and hope at all Redeemer services. 

 

A few of their stories are excerpted below: 

 

Vianeli

Operation Exodus

I speak to young people not as a victim, but as a leader ... I am able to speak and lead from experience, unafraid, believing that God can make something positive out of what seems to be the worst possible situation. 

 

Manny

Brooklyn Teen Challenge

Over this last year at Teen Challenge, I’ve had the privilege to build healthy relationships with people who actually care about me and share a common goal. Even better, God has restored relationships with my family. 

 

Bucky

Open Hands Legal Services & The Father’s Heart Ministries

I have so much hope that, even though we live in a broken world, the Lord is restoring it, renewing everything and completely erasing sin. He’s restoring and renewing me day by day, and that’s a hope worth sharing this Easter. 

 

Charles

All Angels’ Church Community Ministries 

I no longer have to prove to anyone that I am worthy, because I know that in Christ I am loved and have the capacity to give love. As of today, I have been working for 8 years in one job, and I have had my own apartment for the past year. Although this is a huge accomplishment for me, I know that God still has greater things in His kingdom for me.
