You’ve heard it over and over again, 2020 was a challenging year. Our partners faced things they never faced before.
While the challenges were indeed unprecedented, through your support the solutions and opportunities were also unprecedented. I am reminded of the scripture in Hebrews chapter 10: “Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering for He who promised is faithful.”
It is undeniable that many of us, including our partners around the world, had to experience hardships we never would have dreamed of a year before. But even in the midst of that, I think we can grab hold of the truth that God is faithful.
We saw that to be true at International Needs. Due to your incredible generosity, we had one of the best ministry years we have ever had. That was indeed a great blessing because the needs of our partners around the world were greater than ever. True to God’s faithfulness, your generosity matched the needs of our partners and we were we were able to supply them what they desperately needed!
On the pages of this report you’ll see some highlights and statistics related to our work. Here a few snippets:
- Open doors for evangelism materialized like never before
- Empowerment programs supported people greatly in need of financial support
- Water and sanitation programs flowed to communities that didn’t have freshwater
- Creative educational and discipleship materials were developed to get information to people that otherwise would have been isolated
The list could go on and on. It is my hope that you will enjoy the highlights and statistics outlined in this annual report. While it is not comprehensive, I know you will come away with a renewed conviction that for our partners around the world He who promised was indeed faithful.
You were the demonstration of the faithfulness of God in 2020 and I am so grateful for that. Enjoy what you will experience on the pages of this report!
