Giving and Working Together as a Global Family

Linda Adams, ICCM Director
As the director of International Child Care Ministries, I get to watch God work through people. It will happen soon. Some people will learn about a need and be moved to direct their donation very specifically. Maybe a photo will grab someone’s heart, and they will respond to the need.

I love people’s passion when they give in this way. Gifts to special projects or for “where needed most” often show up in the nick of time, in exactly the right amount.

Some of the most amazing of these gifts come from wills and trusts established long ago. The donors never saw the precise situation where the need arose, but they gave in faith and their gift was perfectly timed, many years later.

You can read about this more fully in my December Light and Life magazine article. (Click here to read it online.)

The story illustrates the unity of our global family — Free Methodist World Missions, ICCM, national leaders, sponsored children and the Free Methodist Foundation. We work with one purpose, toward common aims. … Givers partner with God for the good of the world.
