- What We Do
Students at LCC International University, a Resonate Global Mission partner in Lithuania, are launching a movement on campus to care for creation.
When Nastia Synhaivska, a recent graduate of LCC, spent a summer in the United States working in a hotel, she was overwhelmed by the amount of wasted resources. Hallway and lobby lights never switched off; loads of towels and sheets were sent off for wash every day; and dumpsters were filled with plastic wrapping.
For many children in the developing world, going to school is an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty that has trapped their families for decades.
Thanks to Resonate Global Mission partner Sinergia in the Dominican Republic, school was not only an opportunity for children Elvin and Kelvin to create a better life for themselves—school gave their mom hope, too.
With Nicaragua’s rainy season fast approaching, Luis and Alba Lopez knew their family was in a dire situation—their roof wouldn’t be able to withstand the rainstorms.
A family of four, the Lopezes lived in a small, cramped house. While Luis worked hard making and repairing shoes, he couldn’t afford materials for a new roof.
Last year a 7.5-magnitude earthquake shook Hela Province, Papua New Guinea. Landslides destroyed villages, took the lives of many people, and left survivors buried in grief and fear.
“People were in shock,” said Jenny LeMahieu, a Resonate Global Mission missionary who serves as a Scripture-use facilitator with Wycliffe Bible Translators. “Various organizations came to hear their stories in order to give tarps or food. No one had come to talk about [the survivors’] emotional and spiritual pain.”
Not until Jenny and her team arrived.
Fred wanted to be in the driver’s seat of his own life, but then God intervened.
“[Fred] has a very rough background,” said Bruce Gritter, pastor of The River Community Church in Edmonton, Alta., and a local mission leader for Resonate Global Mission. “Through the course of his life, he’s had some ups and downs. He told me: ‘Every time I try to drive the bus of my life, I end up in a ditch and get really stressed out.’”
