Scripture commands us to not only love the Lord God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength but also to love our neighbor as ourselves (Matthew 22:36-40). These neighbors can be in our surrounding towns of Roselle, Addison, or Glendale Heights but have you ever thought of reaching out to your neighbors living on different continents, right from your neighborhood?
During Easter season, we were able to do just that through the Bloomingdale Church’s Passion Project 2017. We partnered with the Alliance’s outreaching ministries who are sent out to the darkest places of the world so everyone may have access to the gospel. They are helping others know and follow Jesus.
The goal was to raise $47,100 for nine different needs, ranging from building a house in Honduras to producing and distributing Sunday School materials in Indonesia. We are excited to report that we have surpassed the goal and raised over $75,000. This fund will be fully used to support those nine projects and expand the reach of the gospel both in the U.S. and overseas.
