God's grace comes in many forms. It's the forgiveness of sin through Jesus Christ. It's the strength to persevere on a difficult day. It's receiving a Bible in a place where Bibles are hard to come by. It's receiving an education. It's having access to clean water.
In line with our commitment to meeting people where they are, and making God's grace come alive for them, Grace In Season is dedicated to three areas of impact. Each one of the following organizations are active arms of grace in the different regions they're involved in. We are proud to support them because 100% of all donations to these organizations go directly towards their causes. Their causes are our cause.
In supporting them we see the words of Habakkuk 2:14 come to life:
"For as the waters fill the sea, [so] the earth will be filled with an awareness of the glory of the LORD."(NLT)
Voice of the martyrs
Christians who live in nations that restrict, or are hostile to, Christianity are often denied access to Bibles. The Voice of the Martyrs organization prints and smuggles Bibles to believers—in their own language. The men and women who receive these Bibles would have to otherwise live their lives without ever reading the Word of God. Many of them use these Bibles to lead underground house churches or to share the good news of Jesus with people in their community and surrounding villages.
Lydia Project Cambodia
The Lydia Project takes God's command to care for the widows and orphans very seriously. The organization rescues orphans, cares for widows, supports university students, provides disaster relief, and plants churches, in the forgotten villages in Cambodia. Their most challenging project is to build a new school, called Grace Academy, for the more than 100 children who are not able to attend school in the area because there are no schools available to them for miles. The estimated cost of this project is $75,000.
1 in 10 people lack access to clean water. 663 million people around the world are living without clean water. That's 2x the entire population of the United States. Charity Water partners with local partners in regions around the world, who are providing long-lasting water and sanitation services. After all, local organizations know the needs of their regions best. Clean water not only prevents the diseases dirty water often carries. It also means more time for the women and girls who spend 40 billion hours a year walking to get water.
