God is opening doors in Belarus to reach disabled people with the Gospel through the Hope-for-the-Handicapped program. CAM works with contacts to provide food parcels, potatoes, and other items to disabled people and their families.
People in Belarus who suffer blindness, hearing impairments, paralysis, or other disabilities often require special care and feel forgotten by much of society. The meager pensions for the disabled create endless difficulties.
Believers in Belarus distribute aid to the disabled as a means of outreach. When recipients and their families gather for food distributions, Christians hold services where they sing, pray and preach. People are eager to attend these services and drink in God’s Word. One believer said, “We noticed tears and longing in the eyes of mothers who have been raising children with disabilities for years.”
This care is causing recipients to ask questions and search their own hearts. One recipient said, “You seem to be complete strangers, but you love us so much! We feel it.”
Touched by this love, some recipients express a desire to change their lives. Last year, three of these recipients repented and were baptized and discipled by local Christians. A believer described a time of Bible study and prayer with disabled individuals. “Someone’s blind eyes shed sincere tears,” he said. “Thank God for the work of the Holy Spirit!”
Christians in one part of Belarus organized weekly Bible studies for a group of blind and visually impaired people. They are forming friendships where they share life stories and needs. Together they lift their requests to God’s throne. Your support is enabling the Hope-for-the-Handicapped program to bring both physical and spiritual food to disabled people in Belarus. One believer passes on the gratitude of a recipient: “Give a huge thank you to all the good people who care so much about us!”
