Imagine 1.2 million Adventists being the Eyes, Heart, Hands, and Feet of Jesus inside and outside the walls of our churches and homes. Preaching and teaching are also acts of compassion, yet not all of us may be able to preach or teach, but we can all reach. The method of Christ is still valid today. If each one of us personally commits to join the movement of Compassion and follow the example of Jesus,
- Our communities will become better places,
- Our members, of all ages and genders, will become active disciples in the mission of our church, and
- Our churches will become healthier, vibrant community changers, and will grow.
Talking is good, yet we must remember that actions speak louder than words. It is hard for the community to hear our wonderful message, if they don’t know we exist, or if they don’t trust us.
10 Million Hours of Compassion. Couldn’t our world use that? For those of us in the North American Division, that’s about 2 hours of intentional compassionate service each month. Are you ready? Our world and our Lord sure are!
Compassion 10 Million is an opportunity for each Adventist member in North America to be involved in mission by becoming the Eyes, Heart, Hands, and Feet of Jesus inside and outside the walls of our homes and churches. It calls for Adventists across North America to collectively invest 10 million hours blessing our communities with intentional, repetitive, and relevant acts of love and service. This initiative provides the opportunity for everyone to be involved somehow. Preaching and teaching are also acts of compassion, yet not all of us may be able to preach or teach, but we can all reach.
