As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
Thank you for praying for Eight Days of Hope as we have fervently sought God's plan for us to bring aid to those who have lost so much. We are thankful that God has opened doors for us to respond to the Bahamas.
Here is our plan...
We will be providing some key resources to the families and communities affected by Hurricane Dorian. Currently, clean drinking water is a major challenge. We will be providing water filtration systems to hundreds of churches, community centers and families as this will help bridge the gap for those who do not have access to clean water. We also will be providing building materials like hurricane-resistant windows and flooring once the rebuilding starts.
We will start shipping supplies within the next week! We expect our outreach to the Bahamas to continue for months.
Eight Days of Hope is blessed to have partners that cover our overhead cost of ministry so every donation given will go straight to those in need!
Would you prayerfully consider giving toward the relief efforts? The need is huge and we need the body of Christ to rise up and be the hands and feet of Jesus. You can give on our website or through our P.O. Box. Make sure you indicate that you would like your donation to go towards the Bahamas.
For our Northeast followers, EDOH is partnering with St. John Baptist Church for the next four weeks to collect and ship supplies to families in the Bahamas who are starting the recovery process.
Starting Monday, September 16th, 2019, through Sunday, October 13th, 2019, residents can drop off items at St. John Baptist Church, located at 184 Goodell Street, Buffalo, NY 14204, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays.
Here are the items we are suggesting:
- Personal hygiene items (toothbrushes, toothpaste,
deodorant, soap, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion,
feminine products, disposable diapers, and wipes)
- Clear plastic storage bins
- Tote bags
- Bedding – sheets
- Camping chairs
- Camping cots
- New men’s, women’s, and children’s T-shirts, underwear,
- Liquid detergent
- Tarps (10x14 or bigger)
- Zip ties
- Tool kits
- Commercial staplers
For those of you that do not live in the Northeast, we have created an Amazon wish list with these items so you can ship them directly to St. John Baptist Church. We also are purchasing water filtration systems to send to local churches we have partnered with in the Bahamas to provide clean water for their community. We would love your support as we are striving to provide the best resources we can to those in need! You can donate directly on our website or mail us a check at P.O. Box 3208, Tupelo, MS 38803.
May God bless you!
“I believe actions speak louder than words. Eight Days of Hope is not just sharing the word of God but they are living out the word of God! Eight Days of Hope is a modern day good Samaritan story!
“I had the best time serving with Eight Days of Hope! I felt like I was closer to Heaven worshiping with 3,000 people every day, serving others in His name and for His glory!
“This was the first mission trip for my husband and me. We were overwhelmed seeing over 3,000 volunteers under one roof, brought together for one reason, to show God's love. The homeowners and the people of Tupelo were so very welcoming. It was amazing to see how smoothly everything went. There was no downtime or wondering what to do next. Eight Days of Hope is wonderfully organized.”
“I was able to introduce my youngest son Weston, to being the church instead of simply going to church. That was his first mission trip and he loved it! His second trip is in two weeks to Peru”.
“To me, Eight Days of Hope is about the recharging of my spirit and faith. You go on the trip to serve someone in need and end up being blessed yourself. While serving, you walk so close to Christ that you return home from the trip so spiritually charged that you are compelled to tell everyone about the experience. Then you count down the days until the next Eight Days of Hope trip.”
