“Gods mercy and grace give me hope - for myself, and for our world”
- Billy Graham
From the very beginning of the Goodlife Church has taken the call to be active in the nations of the world as a serious call and an engaging invitation. It has never been seen as the duty of someone else alone and therefore we continually encourage participation in the development, strengthening and transformation of the nations.
The Global Impact of Goodlife continues to expand as individuals and families invest themselves in nations, regions and people groups through direct personal involvement in a location or through development organisations such as Compassion International, World Vision, VANA Childcare Ministries and many others.
Although it may seem like a fanciful notion for many people to relocate to invest themselves in a foreign nation it is something we can all invest in by simply sharing and giving to those in need through the many trusted agencies we partner with at Goodlife. Adopting a child for example via sponsorship is a powerful way we can connect personally with the ongoing development of an individual, a family, a community and a nation outside of our own.
Every one of us can also be a part of engaging with our Global Impact Partners, those who have gone out into the nations to invest their lives in others. Our partners around the world are actively supporting the nations they are in through child and community development, education and medical relief, ethical commerce, reconciliation and Christian leadership development. All of us can still be involved with our Global Impact Partners. We can financially invest ourselves. We can stay in communication and encourage them. We can remember their needs and engage prayerfully.
We can all do something.
