Love will always win over Terror
Post by Daniel Zelli, World Hope Network CEO
This post is with reference to the suicide bombing which took place at Sehwan Shareef, Sindh. 70 people (20 children) have been killed and more than 150 have been wounded.
That's it! I AM GOING TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.
I have had enough of innocent people being harmed. WE HAVE TO STOP FEAR SPREADING. You could say that we have to wage war on fear. To do this you have to know how to fight. You don't fight fear with fear. I am determined to operate out of the opposite spirit. The more terror - the more in intend to show love.
These public displays of terror use fear to fight and control people. We are going to use love to bless and release people.
The holy Scriptures say - "Perfect Love cast out all fear" 1 John 4:18 We want fear out of Pakistan. So we are going to heap massive amounts of love on that nation.
The Pakistani people are beautiful people. We must help them.
SO LET US FIGHT FEAR WITH LOVE
World Hope Network in partnership with partner Bloomfield Halls School is organising relief to the affected victims. To that end, our team have already visited the site including the hospital in the area and carried out an assessment of the what is needed. The intended relief effort is detailed below. The people of this area are extremely poor. It is desirable that we join hands and support this cause. All donations will be directed towards the project at hand with minimal funds reserved for administration costs. All staff involved are volunteers.

Sisophon, Cambodia March 26
Greatly honoured by Cambodian Government today at the initiation of the new governor. Given front seat next to senior generals, diplomats, chief of staff Deputy PM, and Consulate General Vietnam.

Picture shows address by deputy Prime Minister, His Excellency Sar Kheng. All this because we want to help people and show God's love practically.
Sisophon- Cambodia march 25
Just had official meeting with university. Door hasn't just opened - it has been blown off the hinges. We will be doing a full clinic with this university for all students, a biodiesel project and a potential night rally. I have now been asked to meet chief of staff, prime ministers office tomorrow - 2 meetings away from prime minister. Thank you mr Chiv Sarith. The Mission in July is taking some very exciting turns. Just unexplainable supernatural favour. Imagine if university of Queensland said come on to our campus - meet with each student personally. What an opportunity.
Phum Sophy, Cambodia – March 25
This is what the cross of Jesus is all about. One of the team evangelist started this humble church (we met the yesterday). Very remote- very poor - but full of joy in their salvation. Now 10 families strong. In July we will be working with this new church and doing a medical clinic near them. We have the opportunity to see this church grow x 10 through the mission.
Whilst holidaying in NZ, a retiring nurse 'accidentally' rang World Hope Operations Manager, Dr Nicole Anderson, and ended up donating a Portable Ultra Sound machine to the World Hope Network Ministry.
We are so encouraged! What a difference that will make to the doctors in the field during our missions trips! read more..
