World Hunger 2016-2017

World Renew invites you to participate in the 2016-2017 World Hunger Campaign: Changing the Story!

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: the old has gone, the new is here!"—2 Corinthians 5:17

What’s your story? In many parts of the world, people’s stories begin in a place of hardship. Illiteracy, poor healthcare, hunger, and poverty are a regular part of life. Through God’s grace, people’s hard work, and support like yours, however, many of these men, women and children are taking steps to improve their lives.

Every day, World Renew sees people rewriting their stories:

  • From poverty to plenty

  • From illiterate to educated

  • From victims of disaster to empowered survivors

This change is not just a material one. Jesus is the greatest story changer of all. He turned fishermen into disciples, fallen women into followers, and persecutors into missionaries.

That’s why, as World Renew seeks to help people in need, we work through churches and Christian partners in communities around the world to tackle poverty, disaster and injustice.

Many men and women around the world have been shaped by stories about their poverty. They may believe that poverty is their destiny, that rights and justice don’t apply to them, or that their dreams and aspirations are not important.

As people begin to accept their value as children of God, however, they recognize their God-given talents and abilities, tap into their potential as God’s image bearers, and become equipped to change their own stories for the long-term.

This year, World Renew invites you to join us in changing the story. On World Hunger Sunday, please give generously of your time, prayers, talents and financial gifts to bless others. World Renew will use your gifts to combat poverty, disaster, and injustice around the world in Jesus’ name.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact World Renew at 1-800-552-7972 (US) or 1-800-730-3490 (Canada).
