The Concept

The Problem

Over 3 Billion people worldwide live on less than $2.50 per day with almost a billion and a half living on less than half of that. 

$1.25 per day – can you imagine?  We often talk about living paycheck to paycheck – how do we grapple with living spoonful to spoonful?

The numbers are so staggering that it is easy to ignore.  How do you even comprehend a billion?

We have been challenged by the exact same thing. There is an apathy that comes with numbers. We can understand the need but where do we start?  If these numbers are so readily available, why is nothing being done? What happens to the tens of billions of dollars that the US sends every year in foreign aid?  

Our approach

Instead of trying to tackle the global problem, we’ve decided to see what we can do in one corner of the globe.  Instead of keeping the problem at arm’s length and just sending aid, we’ve gone and developed relationships.  

Our 2016 team. The orphanage build.

It is through these relationships that Two Pennies Ministry is gaining a foothold.  This has become personal to us and we’ve been able to connect schools, churches and communities in making a difference in the lives of people that have names, faces, and homes.  We’ve been a part of providing medical care to people without access to hospitals, we’ve developed programs to feed hungry school children, and walked alongside people to learn to sustain themselves.  We’ve built a medical clinic, a piggery, a library, and a computer lab. We’ve started a poultry farm, built an orphanage and later added solar power. We’ve provided educational scholarships, paid for emergency surgeries and helped lead pastor conferences. 

What next?

Here at home, we’ve been on a mission to provide opportunities for people to be able to live generously with their gifts, time, and resources in order to positively impact the world around them and glorify God. This can occur through regular giving, hosting a campaign, or going on a Journey to help others throughout the world.

 

Over the last 8 years, we’ve taken thirteen journeys to Ghana and had the privilege of working with amazing people there who share our vision to see lives transformed.  Through our partners, we’ve had the blessing of watching lives changed through our actions. We have had the joy of being blessed in so many ways and love to help guide others in their own life journeys.  

 

You are uniquely gifted by God to make a difference. You can support us, you can go on a Journey or you can lead a campaign.

This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person?  Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.

I John 3:16-18

As Jesus looked up, he saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. “Truly I tell you,” he said, “this poor widow has put in more than all the others. All these people gave their gifts out of their wealth; but she out of her poverty put in all she had to live on.”

Luke 21:1-4
