A word of Thanks…first
In 2018, we asked the children of God to join us in a project to distribute 1,000 copies of complete Bibles in our community. Amazingly, the target was reached even before the 45-day window given for receiving funds. It is also important to remind you that because of the discount given from the purchase of the Bible, we are able to pay the school fees of 53 financially displaced children in various schools. Though for many years before then, we have been doing all we could financially for school children, widows and orphans, what we are able to do with the full backing of you is amazing. It is truly a dream come true. This is the reason why we will forever remain grateful to you. Thanks to you and God really bless you.
The man Boaz!
Before I explain to you the meaning and purpose of our project, ‘Boaz Field’, it is important to know who the man, Boaz was. Boaz was a resident of Bethlehem and kinsman of Elimelech, Naomi’s husband. In Ruth 2:1 he is described as “a man of great wealth”. He had fields outside the town, and to them Ruth went to glean after returning with her mother in-law. Boaz noticed her and extended special kindness and protection to her, bidding her remain with his female workers on the farm, and charging the men not to maltreat her, and also giving her of the reapers’ food at mealtime. Boaz awoke one night and found Ruth lying at his feet (By the way, this attitude of Ruth is not sinful in any way. You only need to know their custom. The idea was actually her mother in-law’s). He praised her virtue, and promised to take charge of her if her dead husband’s next-of-kin failed to do so. He laid her case before the next-of-kin, and finally redeemed the family property himself and bought as well the right to take Ruth in marriage. This kindness of Boaz help continue the linage of Jesus Christ. To me, Boaz was a symbol of compassion. He bent backward to pick someone who whose hope was not only lost but living without an assurance of tomorrow. Boaz was the man that help bridge the gap of Jesus’ family linage. Only God can really say the gap we are bridging through our various help initiatives.
What can we learn from Boaz?
Boaz “is set before us as a model of piety, generosity and chastity”.
Ruth met him when she was at the lowest of ebb and if not for Boaz’s intervention, her destiny could have been lost forever.
Boaz was there for Ruth when no one else cares.
What is “Boaz Field”?
Boaz Field was where the whole incident happened! It is a place of compassion, model of piety, generosity and chastity. It is a field where those who no longer have any reason to live will go and find a purpose for their lives. Like Ruth, Boaz Field offer everyone a second chance.
This is the story that inspires us to also reach out to others!
We can look the other way while others live below human dignity.
We can pretend that the life others live does not matter to us.
We can live our lives and enjoy it to the fullest without any consideration.
We can focus on our want and challenges and care less about what other are going through.
We can also blame the poor for being lazy and mock the ophans and widows for being unfortunate.
BUT we opt for the other option and determine to see it through
We determine to help others to stand on their feet!
We determine not to look the other side as if everything is fine!
We do know that whatever we do for a fellow man does matter!
We determine to help others in spite of our own challenges!
We also see that what we are doing is approved of God and definitely will make our faith complete.
That our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ gave a gripping picture of one of the things He will consider on the day of Judgment as follows:
Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory.
v32 “All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats.
v33 “And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.
v34 “Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
v35 ‘for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in;
v36 ‘I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’
v37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink?
v38 ‘When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You?
v39 ‘Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’
v40 “And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’
That is why we are contributing our quota by putting all what we earn back into the ministry.
…And we appeal to you to help us because we cannot do it alone.
If you are led by the Spirit of God to join us, please feel free to partner with us in any area of your interest.
Remember the Scriptures!
Luke 6:33 “And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.
BIBLE FOR UNIVERSITIES
The darkness is not only on the horizon, it has really envelope the world and today’s youths have become victims. More and more youths are forsaking their Creator. They are moving out of Church in droves and no one care to be alarmed. The set-up of various churches is all about making money and building huge empire and very unfortunately, out Youths and Teens are slipping away into sin and perdition. This is the reason why we are taking our “Bible March” to the higher institutions of learning. We hope to distribute 500 Bibles in each University, Polytechnic and College of Education worldwide. All plans has been put in place to do this project in every country Pastor Sam Adeosun is able to tour by the grace of God. This project will start in Nigeria and one (1) Student Bible cost N1,100.
Here in Nigeria, it is curse to become a widow. Lots of them are tagged to be a witch or stigmatized. No one care about them especially Churches. It is a pity that hardly can we see a Church in Nigeria that have robust care for widows and their Children. Hardly can we find an orphan the Church is taking care of his/her education. The only thing Churches want to do are things that will benefit their leaders or things they will do that will bring praises of man in return. We have fifty-four (54) orphans and twenty-seven (27) widows on our list and the list keep growing. These people need hope and a better future every month. The widows are on N5,000 stipends monthly and education grants is now overstretched each term. If you are led by the Holy Spirit to partner with us, join us.
This is our most successful initiative, all thanks to all our partners. It is a thing of joy see our young children in Nursery, Primary and Secondary Schools progressing and doing so well. Each term, school fees are paid for children whose parents are presently struggling and it becomes evident that the education of their children will stop. If you want to come on board, we welcome you. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:42 “And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”
We have various Payment Gateway options: Naira, Pound (domiciliary account), Dollar (domiciliary account) and Card Payments (MasterCard, Visa, etc.)
Please note that Boaz Field 2019 Fundraising will close on Friday May 31st 2019.
