And now these three remain: faith, hope and love
1 Cor. 13:13

Like you, I’m wondering what changes lie ahead. We have many challenges in our country, and that can get discouraging! But if we refocus and reflect on an even bigger picture—life forever with God—we begin to see how, in God’s hands, our “confusion breeds faith; disappointment drives us to hope; conviction leads to love.” (Inside Out, Crabb and Smalley)

By connecting with us, you’ve shown that you care about the poor in the inner-city and that gives us hope to continue the fight against poverty in this country. When you choose to invest your money and your prayers, you join the fight against the struggles that inner-city leaders face. By working as a team with Desire Street, you are accomplishing changes of lasting value by giving hope to those on the front lines who are giving hope to inner-city kids and families. We are all stronger when we help each other up.

That’s a good word picture of Desire Street’s work. Our partnership umbrella forms a safety net to combat the toll of urban ministry. Your gifts help us provide leaders with training and resources, and coaching all along the way. We connect them with other leaders who know what it’s like, because they go through the same struggles. Together, we provide hope, which helps these heroes thrive for the long-run necessary to see revitalization in their impoverished neighborhoods.

Our vision is to love our neighbor. One day we hope to see every neighborhood become a desirable place to live. No matter what tomorrow brings, when we work together, we can face the future with faith, hope and love.

God bless,

P.S. In this holiday season, it’s a special time to focus on how thankful we are for YOU. But at Desire Street, we’re grateful every day for your involvement with us! Your gifts help provide hope and help for urban leaders so they will thrive for the long-run necessary to see lasting change in impoverished neighborhoods.

Will you join the fight against poverty in this country by sending a gift today of $25, $50, $100 or more?

At Desire Street, we don’t fill your mailbox with countless requests, just three letters a year to update you, and ask for your help to raise $77,000 to provide coaching and training for leaders like these.

You can feel assured that your gift will be used wisely, and greatly appreciated by all of us here at Desire Street—especially the urban leaders we encourage. They put their lives on the line every day so that kids and families living in distressed neighborhoods will have a brighter future.
