The Middle East Cries Out…Manara Ministries Answers

middle east sceneThe suffering in the Middle East continues unabated. Thousands have left Iraq and are fleeing into Jordan. Many families who have sought refuge there have no warm clothing, blankets, heaters or even food. The approaching winter can be deadly without the basic necessities. They need help now before the snow comes and the temperatures plunge. A kerosene heater costs $55. Warm blankets for a family of four cost $75. Food parcels that will last 3 weeks cost $50. Items purchased will be distributed to Christian refugees in Jordan and Erbil, Iraq. Your help can make a difference.

Breaking Voodoo’s Chains in Haiti

Pastor CebienHaiti lies only 700 miles off our shores. Yet our neighbor to the South is light years away in terms of need. 50% of Haitians earn less than $1 a day. Over 67% do not have regular jobs. Half of the children under 5 are malnourished and over 7% of children die at birth. 50% of children are not able to attend school and 60% of those who do will leave before the 6th grade. The country is racked with voodoo’s dark superstitions and demon possession. Into this chaos steps Dr. Cebien Alexis and the Army of Christ. Since the 1970’s they have planted 202 churches in Haiti and another 29 in the Dominican Republic. They have started schools, a children’s home, a medical clinic and a training center for pastors and community leaders as well as a Bible Training University. HBI recently provided funds to build a school for the children shown here. School books and supplies are needed. Will you help the students?

Blessing the Family at Christmas

Hope Builders International Christmas Catalogue for 2014

Dear Friends,

The world lies hurting and lost without Christ. The Lord’s enemy is doing all he can to keep the Gospel of Christ from advancing into dark strongholds. Because of that, stories of persecution against believers in Christ abound. From ISIS mercilessly killing believers in the Middle East and driving them from their homes, to a young couple brutally killed in Pakistan for their faith to daily reports of churches being attacked in India, we are witnessing opposition of Biblical proportion to the Gospel. Millions around the globe are oppressed because they simply name the Name of Jesus, want to read the Bible, meet in a home with other believers or pray to a loving God. They covet our support and prayers as they carry the Gospel to those in darkness. We as believers and sharers in the Life of God are all part of His family. In this catalogue are ways to support our greater family around the world. Your gifts and prayers encourage them more than you know. Join us in blessing them this year through these special Christmas gifts.
