Sometimes we look at mission work and forget where it all begins. This video highlights in very poignant scenes how the turning point for missions very well may be when you give your tithes and offerings to your local church. Mission work truly begins when God’s people are faithful to give to His work!

The first line really says it all, “I think most people just don’t want to see it”. But hunger is out there, everywhere. And it has no preference to race, gender, or age. Can you help? Can we help? That probably shouldn’t be the question. The question should be, “When can you help”. Together, we can make a difference because, “Together, We Are There”.
