Foundation: The Spirit of God is upon me, because God has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. God has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of God’s favor. – Luke 4:18-19
We also have clear guidelines for outreach ministry in Matthew 25. When we graciously give food, drink and clothes to people in need; welcome the stranger;and visit the sick and those in prison, in our neighborhoods or in a faraway place through our monetary gifts, we are ministering as Jesus desires. This ministry of Friedens is a combination of several local and worldwide efforts that serve through faithful action by raising awareness and financial support.
