31 Aug Timor-Leste
Serving Our World hosted the first ever Olympic games in East Timor and the results were thrilling! This event reached seven different mountain villages where an estimated 20,000 people live! East Timor, although a small country, has experienced a great deal of violence such as fighting and gang related rioting. But as a result of Serving Our World’s presence, people were brought together in a positive way, supporting the restoration of communities, giving hope.
Here are the comments made by the president of the district, “The work of Serving Our World has really benefited our children, giving them education and meals, reaching out to our youth. The Olympics is bringing unity, peace and friendship, encouraging us to love each other as brothers and sisters. We are all working hard, we have hope for the future of Liquedoe Community again, I want to say thank you.”
This wonderful event opened so many doors and has affected all age groups, helping malnourished children and widows in need. Our desire is to impact lives for a lifetime! We strive to connect families and people with a higher calling and purpose. Our goal is to show them the ultimate love available to them as we offer a new way of living to those who have been neglected.
We are very excited to be able to offer opportunities like this, which help to restore peace to those living in fear and desperation. In remote areas like this, one out of every five children dies before living to celebrate their 5th birthday due to lack of proper food and medical care. We believe we can change that statistic. We know, with your help we can certainly make life better for those innocent children who don’t receive basic necessities of life. Your generous gift today will provide meals and so much more to these villages and this country. As you link arms with Serving Our World, you are providing love and hope to rescue a nation.
