I’d like to share a short story about a young man I will call Joe (not his real name), who was on death row in a West African jail. After an encounter with a MOHIM three-week initiative that focused on life transformation, Joe surrendered his life to a higher power and decided to use the rest of his time while waiting to be executed to help, heal and encourage others with him in jail. Six months later, we were informed that Joe’s life was making a revolutionary impact in the prison and a legal appeal was made to have his death sentence commuted to a life sentence. When I revisited him, with a beaming smile, he said to me, ”I will give God my lifetime”. Indeed Joe’s life has been a strident message of hope to so many during his time in a place where hope is usually considered destined to die.
This story typifies what we at MOHIM espouse. Webster’s dictionary defines hope as, “an optimistic attitude of mind that is based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large.” We do believe men, women, and children are created in the image of God, with unique abilities, creativity, and of course, dreams. But around the world, many lack the educational, as well as financial resources to provide for their basic needs, much less, invest in their future. Trapped in feelings of hopelessness, many begin to believe they have nothing in their hands.
MOHIM seeks to invest in the dreams of families in the world’s underserved communities as we proclaim and live the Gospel. MOHIM respectfully partners with these men, women, and children, providing discipleship, biblically-based training that empowers them to provide for their families and give back to their communities.
One of my favorite Christian authors says it this way. “Every human being, created in the image of God, is endowed with a power akin to that of the Creator-- individuality, power to think and to do. The men in whom this power is developed are the men who bear responsibilities, who are leaders in enterprise, and who influence character. It is the work of true education to develop this power, to train the youth to be thinkers, and not mere reflectors of other men's thoughts.”
