On Daily Faith, our guest is Teresa Pritchard. Mrs. Teresa is a mother, grandmother, and co-pastors of Fayetteville Community Church in Fayetteville, NC. Today, Mrs. Teresa is here to encourage your faith and speak life to your inner man. She has recently written a book with the help of her two eldest granddaughters entitled, Against the Current. This book explains the challenges and difficulties of the river of life, called the world system. This world system is rapidly changing, making it hard to keep up, leaving us confused and emotionally unstable. Many people are struggling with their identity, mental illness, fear, anxiety, and depression. When we go with the flow of the world system, things and events in life seem to appear easy and acceptable. Yet, as Christians, we are not called to go with the flow of the world. We are called and designed by God to be set apart for His purpose. We are to be in the world, not of the world. When we give God our yes, we begin to go against the currents of life and swim upstream. This task is not easy; however, God has provided lifeguards and anchors that keep us safe and hold us tightly to the promises of God. God will be there with you in whatever storms you may be facing. So hold tight to God’s unfailing hand today, and be encouraged to fear not; Jesus knows your name!

The Orphans Hands ministry is the heart of our outreach ministry in Eastern Europe. We have a village of homes called Varta Village in Moldova and a house in Ukraine. Together we house over fifty kids who this world has rejected. Moldova is one of the poorest countries in eastern Europe. Often these kids are forced out of their homes and sent to grow up in an orphanage. They grow up with feelings of loss, sadness with no hope in sight. When they turn sixteen, they are kicked out onto the street, leaving these kids subject to the false hopes of human traffickers. They have been battered by the storms, tossed around by the currents of life; however, upon coming into our homes, they are now discovering their true identity by the love of Jesus Christ! The Orphans Hands ministry has been rescuing these unwanted children of the world and is providing a safe place to call home and a family who loves them. Their faith is strengthened daily by the word of God, who is the anchor for their soul. They would like to thank you for your generous support and thoughtful prayers from their hearts to yours!

Today, on Daily Faith, our guest is Mark Yoder of Christ Community Church in Sumter, South Carolina. He wants to talk to you about knowing the heart of our heavenly Father through the stories of the Bible. Most people know there is a God but haven’t discovered the benefits of a relationship through Jesus Christ, His Son. The word of God is alive and inspired by the Holy Spirit, full of life, stories, and parables that help us gain more insight and understanding of God’s true nature. Pastor Mark has written a book called Garden to Garden: The Story of God and Us. In this book, you’ll learn how God has established a relationship between man and Himself since the beginning. This story takes you chronologically through the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, helping you grasp your true identity as a son and daughter of Christ. Pastor Mark wrote this book to help others grow and learn in their knowledge of Jesus and find enrichment in an established relationship with God. When our eyes are opened to know His love, you’ll discover how the power of a story can change your life! What story has God written for you to learn today?

The Orphans Hands ministry has helped to rescue unwanted and abandoned children for the past thirty years. One of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe is Moldova. We have a village of homes called Vatra Village and a house in Ukraine. We help save young boys and girls from the risks of human trafficking. Due to poverty and lack of social support from their community, these children are often kicked out of their homes, forcing them to live in an orphanage. They are told that they are nothing in the orphanages and will never amount to anything in life. With feelings of loss, despair, and hopelessness, they are again kicked out at the age of sixteen and on the street with a bus ticket back to where they came. It’s in that hopelessness when we reach out and share the love of Jesus with them. We have told them, if they were born, God has a plan. Our kids are growing in their relationship with God through their love for Jesus. The stories of the Bible have impacted their hearts, helping to establish their true identity in Christ. From orphans to sons and daughters of Christ, they are now missionaries, returning the same love they have received to those in need. Thank you for your support!
