Many people I know have fallen in recent weeks and sustained some serious injuries. My sister was one of those who fell, and people came to offer help on a busy city street where it happened. A visit to the nearby hospital emergency room confirmed no broken bones in this case, although others I know did not come off quite so fortunate.
I’m reminded of the text in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 that says that “two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: if either of them falls down, one can help the other up.” I think this is a good picture of what MCC does, helping people around the world, striving to share God’s love and compassion through relief, development and peacebuilding.
Thank you for your ongoing support and partnership in the work of the Mennonite Central Committee. God bless you as you bless others in the name of Christ.
