Story number 1 for 14 Jan 2000

By January 14, 2000

We begin today’s newscast in the Muslim world where an evangelical group is
building homes to help share Christ’s love. Shelter Now International’s Joan
Grawvunder says last year they built two-thousand homes world-wide in earthquake
and war ravaged areas. She says going into Muslim countries with assistance is an
innovative way to share the Gospel. “The best way to show the love of Christ is to
help. To be there for them. Going and hitting them over the head with the Gospel isn’t
going to help them when they’re sitting out in the rain. By going and trying to help them
through their need and living the Christian life they can see Christ better than they can
hear.” This year, Grawvunder says they hope to surpass the two-thousand home mark.
They’re appealing for more financial help so they can take the love of Christ to other
areas of the world.
