LOVE in action

Dear children, let us not love with words or speech, but with actions and in truth. I John 3:18

The passage in I John chapter 3 describes love in that, “Jesus laid down His life for us.” The passage goes on to say, “If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?” The ministry of His Helping Hands is all about helping others in need with the donations that you provide for the ministry, all in the name of Jesus Christ. Effective July 1st, His Helping Hands will begin a new phase of ministry called LOVE IN ACTION. This is a continuation and transition of the ministry that was previously called Love In The Name Of Christ (Love INC - Wichita). Love Inc will no longer exist in Wichita, but the clearinghouse ministry that they performed for local churches will continue as Love In Action, a ministry of His Helping Hands, Inc. The clearinghouse concept helps local churches identify and meet legitimate needs in the community. If a church receives a request for help from an individual or a family, but they do not know anything about them, the church can refer the request to the clearinghouse. The clearinghouse staff and volunteers will research the need and make a recommendation back to the church. The intent of the Love In Action clearinghouse is to meet legitimate needs in the community through the churches and while doing so, connect families with church bodies. This process will further help us to live out the words contained in I John 3:18. The Love In Action coordinator will be Melissa Leonard, who has worked for the Love INC clearinghouse ministry for over eight years. Melissa will work alongside the current clearinghouse volunteers who have faithfully worked in the ministry for many years. The merger of Love In Action into the ministry of His Helping Hands will provide additional opportunities for HHH to assist local churches in their efforts to help needy families in the Wichita community. As the concept is further developed, churches will be identified that may want to specialize in certain ministry areas. For example, Melissa Leonard a church may have some volunteers who want Love In Action to help single moms on a Saturday by offering a Coordinator free oil change. Another church may want to help elderly people with some yard work. As these various church ministries are identified, HHH will be better able to connect needs with the proper resources. We are here to help others in the name of Jesus Christ by putting love into action. Thank you for your support for the ministry of His Helping Hands and for your prayers for the transition of Love In Action.
