You're only one person...how can you make a real difference in a world teeming with hurting, forgotten, and impoverished people? Showing how you can become the heart and hands of Jesus, Newman shares practical suggestions; creative ideas; real-life stories; ministry contacts; websites; and step-by-step instructions for easy-, medium-, and high-level commitment projects.
Although believers today are becoming more and more aware of the tremendous need in our world and our responsibility to care for the poor, most feel overwhelmed and powerless to even begin. In A Cup of Cold Water in His Name, Lorie Newman not only compels us to be involved in His work with the "least of these", she also offers hundreds of ideas and resources to do so! She calls it "going deep"
deep into God's heart for the poor, going deeper into their pain. This is without a doubt one of the best books written on this subject and I urge you to read it . . . then share it with a friend. - Dr. Wess Stafford, President and CEO, Compassion International and author of Too Small to Ignore and Just a Minute
