Charity as a Way of Life
Sharing a message of hope around the world
Charity is part of Loving God & Others
The basis of charity is found in the Two Commandments of Jesus…
“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35 (KJV)
Charity as a way of life: Ann and her husband donate a portion of their time, resources, plus earnings, to compassionate action projects in the USA and abroad. It is a practice which brings them great joy in that it is their belief that, “we are blessed to be a blessing.” Mercy and charity were among the primary values taught by Jesus throughout his time on earth, lessons which they both take very seriously.
Following the leading: Ann’s humanitarian father was also a great influence on her and taught her years ago about living with a sense of mission. He believed in allocating energy for the relief of suffering in America as a priority. But, he also reminded Ann not to forget our family in God around the world who need a hand of fellowship from time to time as well. This page will describe the activities she is currently involved with and also give you a little bio information along with her vision plan.
