Samaritan’s Purse

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.”

For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done it’s utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. They reach hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ which earns them opportunities to share the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.
