Who: Jim and Faye Hocking
What: Water for Good:
They are committed to improving lives and demonstrating God’s love to people through reliable clean water access in one of the world’s most neglected countries, the Central African Republic. They follow Jesus’ example to show unconditional love to the poor and oppressed, of any faith or none. They are not a church-planting organization. Instead, they engage with the existing local churches whenever possible, helping them solve one of their most urgent health problems, and in this way empower the ministry of Central African churches all across the country.
Trip: Going with COD supported missionary, Jim Hocking, to Central African Republic. Purpose is to equip and observe what God is doing through Water for Good in CAR.
We, the missions department here at Open Door, asked missionaries Jim and Faye Hocking what they need from us and he said, “For a team to come out and see what we do”. He wasn’t asking for money, he was asking for relationships. It’s one thing to support an organization, but it is a whole other thing to go and see what they are doing. It shows them we are truly dedicated to them and support and believe in what they do. It also makes it more personal and real for us as a church when we go, and it gives us a better understanding of how to pray!
Where: Central African Republic
We would like to set up a trip for 2019, but we need a team! Is God calling you to go!? Please let us know!
