Children and youth are searching for hope during this challenging season, as the COVID-19 pandemic brings uncertainty and fear to families around the world.
God’s Word is needed now, more than ever before.
Many of our partners around the world are working in limited access nations and challenging ministry contexts. They are asking for resources to reach their communities. Our church partners are saying that this is a time of incredible need when people are searching for answers—this is an open opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
We are continuing to serve our church partners around the world, and they need our help.
Together, we can share the hope of God’s Word with young people during a pivotal moment in history.
During critical time, you have the opportunity to participate in the Crisis of Hope Matching Challenge. This means every single dollar will reach six children and youth with God’s life-transforming Word — even during the pandemic.
Our Response to the Global COVID-19 Pandemic:
Our mediums may change, but our mission will never change.
Our mission is to affect destiny by providing God’s eternal Word to all of the children and youth of the world. COVID-19 has changed much of how OneHope can deliver God’s Word to children. Most of the schools are closed around the world, but there are unprecedented opportunities for ministry in spite of these closings.
We are responding to incredible opportunities for ministry digitally and in limited access nations.
We are particularly concentrating on programs that have continued unabated during the pandemic precautions, including digital programs and ministry in the limited access areas and other regions where our partners are also involved in ongoing works of mercy and compassion with God’s Word.
Children, young people, and families are on their digital devices, looking for answers and hope. As the Church, we have the greatest hope. We have God’s Word, which can be shared as easily as a click of a button. God has put OneHope in a position where we can reach children and young people who speak every major language of the world, right now. We’ve already built digital Scripture programs, like the Bible App for Kids, OneHope Youth Films, and What if it’s True? They’re ready to go. Now, we just need to deploy them further. We need to get them into the hands and onto the phones of young people around the world. You can be a part of making that happen.
The OneHope team is thinking creatively of how to modify more of our existing programs to digitize them in order to provide them to the Church who is looking for additional digital tools.
Our partners continue to share encouraging stories of the next generation experiencing God’s Word.
- Aboriginal children in Australia are being given the Book of Hope through the mail.
- Families in need in Italy are receiving food, a mask, and a Book of Hope on their doorstep.
- Watch children in Africa worship together from their separated balconies.
Ministry is continuing, but we’re taking steps to keep our ministry associates and partners safe.
In the midst of this time of uncertainty, we’re choosing hope over fear, and calm over chaos. OneHope remains operational through remote means during this unique season. Our network of ministry associates and Church partners spans the globe. We have suspended international travel for the foreseeable future. Our ministry associates have primarily transitioned to remote work. Even though we are working remotely, we’re all working toward the same mission of God’s Word, Every Child. Our prayer line will remain open during this time. We would love to hear from you (1-800-448-2425).
We are advising all of our associates to follow the guidance provided by international and local health authorities. In the United States, we will continue to adhere to the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and regional health departments as the situation continues to evolve.
Please join us in prayer for children around the world who are being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. We believe that God’s Word can bring them hope!
