Hotes Foundation Believes Each Individual Can Help Turn Poverty Around
Thank you all for your care and God bless you for your prayers.
I’ve spent decades helping and staying in hundreds of villages like this around the world. I’ve learned that God blesses us through each other. We are His “hands and feet.” Yet I rarely find anybody or any organization doing anything sustainable for the poorest of the poor in villages like this!
You are all correct - this child’s life and hundreds of millions like her will not change if this continues, but if millions more of us GO then we can end poverty!
If you want your prayers for this child to be answered ... you are God's answer. For those of you who doubt or believe there is not a God, I understand. For many of us "faith" is only maintained through daily prayer. I have faith but I have to ask for strength and wisdom every day to keep it. But if you do not believe then you are still at least as responsible, if not more so, because that means you are their only chance.
For those who go on a regular basis you already know God blesses you richly. For those who don’t, and perhaps don't know how, but want to help, just ask. We'll give you some ideas. I personally love and am blessed that you care and you comment.
