We are a non-profit humanitarian organization focusing on the hunger needs of children and families.
People to People Ministries Inc. is a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. The ministry began in 1978 to provide support services and seminars in three areas: education, health and wellness, and religious studies and activities. Since 2010 the organization has focused it attention on hunger, providing food assistance to children and families in need.
Hunger is not only a serious problem in America but around the world. Children are especially at risk. Many families struggle to maintain enough food for their families and need support. Through the Weekend Backpack Food Program and other emergency food support programs we are able to help fill the gap. The backpack program provides children with non-perishable food to ensure that they have something to eat over the weekend. We also provide emergency food support for families in need.
Nature and Revelation Testify of God's Love
Nature and revelation alike testify of God's love. Our Father in heaven is the source of life, of wisdom, and of joy. Look at the wonderful and beautiful things of nature. Think of their marvelous adaptation to the needs and happiness, not only of human beings, but of all living creatures. The sunshine and the rain, that gladden and refresh the earth, the hills and seas and plains, all speak to us of the Creator's love. It is God who supplies the daily needs of all His creatures.
In the beautiful words of the psalmist: “The eyes of all wait upon thee; and thou givest them their meat in due season. Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing” (Psalm 145:15, 16).
God made Adam and Eve perfectly holy and happy; and the fair earth, as it came from the Creator's hand, bore no blight of decay or shadow of the curse. It is transgression of God's law - the law of love - that has brought woe and death.
Yet even amid the suffering that results from sin, God's love is revealed. It is written that God cursed the ground for man's sake (Genesis 3:17). The thorn and the thistle - the difficulties and trials that make life one of toil and care - were appointed for our good as a part of the training needful in God's plan for our uplifting from the ruin and degradation that sin has wrought.
The world, though fallen, is not all sorrow and misery. In nature itself are messages of hope and comfort. There are flowers upon the thistles, and the thorns are covered with roses.
“God is love” is written upon every opening bud, upon every spire of springing grass. The lovely birds making the air vocal with their happy songs, the delicately tinted flowers in their perfection perfuming the air, the lofty trees of the forest with their rich foliage of living green - all testify to the tender, fatherly care of our God and to His desire to make His children happy. - Steps to Christ, 9, 10.
By beholding the matchless love of Christ, the selfish heart will be melted and subdued. - COL 394
