“Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Matthew 4:4
At Love One, we have the great responsibility and honor of working with children suffering from malnutrition. But did you know that we also serve these children and families by offering them “spiritual nourishment”?
This past year, we welcomed Pastor Samuel Frances to our team to serve as Director of Spiritual Development. As a trained Anglican Priest through CRU (formerly Campus Crusade), he is perfectly equipped to help Love One accomplish our mission by tending to the spiritual well-being of the children and families we serve. Samuel Frances also serves our growing staff and their families in a pastoral role. We know that if our staff is spiritually healthy and growing, it will pour over into their daily work.
Since joining our team, Pastor Frances has worked with churches and community leaders in local villages, working to forge new relationships allowing Love One to reach more children and families with life-saving care. He is quickly becoming a pastor to many as he loves the people we serve through resettling children back into their homes with a Bible, partnering with parents in baptisms, discipling, and, sadly, walking with families who suffer loss.
We believe that Pastor Frances’ role will produce some of the most significant long-term returns on investments we could hope for in our work at Love One – that of eternal impact! In fact, it is the longEST term return on investment.
Pray for Samuel Frances and the entire team as they experience the highs of seeing children healed, and people coming to know Christ and the lows of tremendous suffering. Pray that the Love One team will remain sensitive to God’s direction and the ultimate hope we all have in Him.
Thank you for your partnership in serving children and families with both physical AND spiritual nourishment.
