Kenneth and Gloria Copeland and the Kenneth Copeland Ministries family of Partners across America and around the world, joined our faith and financial resources with the Feed the Hungry organization to bring restoration, healing and hope to the people of Japan. In the wake of the natural disasters that hit Japan in 2011, people were in need of a number of resources as basic as clean water, food and shelter.
This was our opportunity, as Christ’s ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:20), to represent Jesus and His love to the people of Japan. As we read in 1 John 4:12, New Living Translation, “No one has ever seen God, but if we love each other, God lives in us, and His love is brought to full expression in us.” We can live the words of that scripture today.
As we stood with Feed the Hungry, we were helping to respond to this natural disaster by helping local churches and disaster relief teams that were on the ground in Japan. Also, financial gifts in the form of Emergency Fund Transfers provided much needed water, ready-to-eat foods, formula, diapers and other relief aid for immediate distribution to families across that nation.
Here are a few examples of what our partnership as a team of faith will support:
- Bases to distribute aid already active in Fukushima, North and South Sendai, Minami, Sanrikucho, Morioka and Hachinohe
- Basic items such as baby food, formula, food, water and blankets
- Containers of rice and soy meal to provide more than 500,000 meals, supply hygiene kits, and other personal-care items
We invite you to join with us to help in similar relief work.
