Faces of Hope – Bringing Hope, Breaking Despair for the People of Cape Town, South Africa
by Allen Allnoch
A teenage mother who named her child “No Hope” – then changed it to “Jesus Is Our Hope.” A young man who overcame a family tragedy to become an influential children’s minister. Twin sisters who are taking a stand for Christ in a blighted community where He is desperately needed. Through the ministries of Living Hope, God has broken despair and transformed the lives of these people and many more across Cape Town, South Africa’s South Peninsula. Hear their stories. See their faces. Celebrate hope.
In Faces of Hope we meet just a few of the thousands of people
whose lives have been touched and changed by one pastor and his
congregati on who chose not to walk by “the beggar laid at their gate”
but stopped, instead, to minister Christ’s love to him. Living Hope is
showing people the love of Christ and bringing the Good News to the
poor. But this is not a story about just one church – it’s a story about
any local church that earnestly desires to be God’s agent of change.
This could be the story of your church.
