Tearfund: Living Water Day 42

 

LIVING WATER: Overcoming obstacles

 

 

‘I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.’ (John 16:33)

 

Jesus is always very real when he speaks to us he does not paint a picture of life that is untrue. But he also gives us peace in the midst of it. We face all sorts of troubles in this world but we remind ourselves that he has overcome the world.

 

A massive obstacle for those living in the riverside communities in Honduras is the lack of jobs. People like Angela are being offered courses in clothes making, hairdressing, carpentry, mechanics and sport, especially football as it’s so popular, so that they can develop livelihoods and bring transformation to the community.

 

One of the local pastors has been organising football clubs for the kids so they would join a football club rather than a gang. Activities like this can keep children off the streets, protecting them from violence and drugs. Creating jobs brings hope to the community and might just help to break the cycle of violence.

 

Prayer

Thank you Lord Jesus that you have indeed overcome the world and through you we can overcome the challenges that we face in the world. We pray for community initiatives locally and globally that are helping to overcome great obstacles and provide hope.
