When a disaster strikes near or far, we do everything we can to help. Follow us on social media for frequently updated posts on our efforts in-person to make a difference around the world!

Our Gleaning partners distribute humanitarian aid supplies all over the world.

In many countries (especially in the poorest villages on earth) children don't attend school, women are not treated with equality, and the rights and freedoms we have in the United States are simply unheard of.

We are blessed to live in this great nation, and we are thankful for all of our military members and police personnel who work, every day, to keep us safe.

We hope you have a fun and blessed Independence Day.

Today, we say our final goodbyes to our friend and Gleaning family member, Steve Bryant. We thank you all for your prayers for Steve’s family and friends during this time.

Colossians 3:17 (NLT) ...

Today, we are loading a 40-foot shipping container filled with thousands of humanitarian aid items including personal care supplies, personal protective masks, kitchen and household items, as well as lovingly sewn dresses for girls, shorts for boys, and blankets in different fabrics and sizes, all donated by a team of volunteer seamstresses. And, we can’t forget the sports balls, games, plush toys and coloring books for children. We even included gifts such as handbags, scarves, jewelry, and small individual kits of soap bars and hand crocheted washcloths in pretty, fabric bags. We’re excited about the contents of this container, and we’re praying for a safe delivery of these goods to our partners in Israel.

If you’ve been watching the news, you know that Israel has been under severe attack in recent weeks. And - while we’ve been working on gathering supplies for this shipment for months, the timing of the delivery of these goods is definitely the Lord’s doing. Our brothers and sisters in Israel need relief right now.

God works through the hearts of those He has called to dedicate their lives to bringing love and compassion to the Jewish people, and together we encourage and support messianic Jewish ministries throughout Israel through the provision of much needed humanitarian aid.

With less than 1% of the Israeli population identified as Christian, the work is extremely difficult and challenging, yet more important than ever. We are meeting physical needs, as hearts are opened to the love of Jesus.

When you give financially to Gleaning, you are part of this incredible work. Together, we are providing supplies to our partners, and they are using them to make a difference. Friend, would you consider giving a special gift to Gleaning this month to support our mission of sharing God’s love with those in need? (link in Bio)

We hope to see you all at Sam's Club tomorrow and Saturday during out disaster relief supply collection, as we gear up for this year's Hurricane Season response. 10am to 6pm each day. We need nonperishable foods, sports drinks, hygiene items, baby supplies, pet supplies, paper products, and cleaning items.

All items donated will be used for our next disaster responses.
Thank you for joining us in our effort to share God's love with the victims of these storms.
