The following letter was received today in response to the emergency aid that was sent by Healing Handing International and Hope Springs a few weeks ago. It confirms our faith in how important it is to share the Love of Christ with those who do not know Him.
LETTER OF APPRECIATION
Grace, peace and love of God be multiplied to you in the name of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.
I write on behalf of the elders and the entire Wulari-Jerusalem church to appreciate your milk of human kindness in responding to the needs of brethren and neighbors in a swift manner. Your quick response has rekindled hope and put smiles in the faces of many people who were affected by the crisis. May God be glorified through your humanitarian services.
We received the sum of Five thousand dollars ($ 5,000.00)
Which you sent. We set up a committee and appropriated the fund as follows: The sum of one thousand dollars was given to the Muslims who were affected during the crisis. This we disbursed through Borno State youth empowerment scheme through brother Ebenezer. We purchased plastic chairs and distributed to our denominational neighbors. This cost us $ 2,000.00 we shared the sum of $1000.00 to brethren who were affected by the crisis. The remaining $1000.00, was used in purchasing food stuff which we distribute to hospitals and military base where the displaced persons are presently taking refuge. Brother Ebenezer will give you full details of our efforts.
Brother, the testimonies received from the recipients of these gifts were so overwhelming. One injured Muslim man said, “see, this gift is coming from Christians who we don’t share anything in common; our Muslim brothers don’t know the road to this hospital; may God reward you Christians”. This is one out of many testimonies.
Brother, may you remain blessed and know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain (I Cor.15:58). We shall appreciate further Aid for onward delivery to these people who are afflicted and need rehabilitation.
Your fellow worker in the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ

We look forward to Ebenezer’s report as soon as he returns from his meeting with Healing Hands personal in Dakar, Senegal.
Thanks for your continued support.
