God’s Love in Action

Gentry“The Mother’s Day Offering was a life-saver for my family and made all the difference in the world,” said Jim Gentry from West Jefferson, N.C.

“We were so worried about my hospital bill – and the stress wouldn’t stop. We could never say thank you enough to those who helped us. My wife and I cried tears of relief. North Carolina Baptists took a huge burden off our shoulders and showed us that God is still working through His people.”

The heart of Christ’s love overflows toward those who suffer. Near the center of His agape-type love is a Spirit of generous compassion, mercy and benevolence toward the “least of these.” The assurance of His love brings life-giving hope – and truly makes all the difference in the world. That is the heart of the Mother’s Day Offering and those who give to this ministry.

Your gift makes the heart felt compassion of Christ real for hurting patients and families at North Carolina Baptist Hospital. They suffer from the pain of serious illness, the hardships of limited income, and the literal fear of losing everything. Your gift becomes God’s love in action – lifting the burden of hospital bills in the name of Jesus Christ. God translates your compassion into hope and draws people closer to Christ in life-changing gratitude.

“Those who give to the Mother’s Day Offering gave us so much hope and strengthened our faith in the goodness of God,” Jim said. “They helped us know that He still cares about us.”

Jim Gentry and his wife Shirley are members of Mission Home Baptist Church in Fleetwood. They are hard working and humble people who needed a helping hand to get back on their feet after his illnesses. Your gift, combined with Baptists across North Carolina, will become a lifeline of hope for hundreds of people like them in 2011.

THANK YOU for the difference you make. PLEASE PRAY for this ministry. PLEASE GIVE and let Christ’s love overflow through you!
