“A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him — He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.” Isaiah 11:1,2, 3b-4a
Isaiah foretold the wonderful news about the he baby whose birth we celebrate at Christmas hundreds of years before his birth. The baby grew up to be the controversial prophet, Jesus, who did not see others as everyone else saw them. His righteousness was salvation to the needy and his justice brought life to the poor.
Jesus still inspires righteous ministry and justice to the poor and needy through Red Bird Mission and Red Bird Clinic on daily basis.
The deaf hear again because audiologists give their time and others give funds to provide hearing aids.
Healing flows from our dental clinic because we have a dentist again and funds are available to provide care for those with desperate dental needs.
Thousands of hungry people are fed through our food pantries and meal programs because churches and individuals are donating funds and food that supplement base funding of other organizations.
The elderly and children have safe, warm housing because volunteers give of their time and money to make essential home repairs through our Work Camp ministry.
Children and youth have opportunity to break the cycle of poverty because generous people support our work to form Christian leaders at Red Bird Christian School.
We praise God for all of these blessings! Even though great ministry is happening here through Red Bird Mission and Red Bird Clinic with the help of our partners, we have seen a decline this year in charitable giving. If you have given already this year, we are grateful. If you haven’t yet given financially this year, or find it possible to give an additional gift before the end of the year, please pause during this busy time and support the ministries that help to bring salvation and life in the name of the Messiah to those who are needy and the poor in the name of our Messiah.
We are grateful for your partnership with us, and pray God’s richest blessing on you and yours during this holy season
