“Come as you are, journey and grow together in a relaxed environment”
Come Build Hope with Us. We are leaving on Friday October 9th; return Monday the 12th; The cost is $230 per person. This cost buys all the materials for the house, all the food, gas and insurance for the vehicles and a small fee for the use of the Amor campsite. Some scholarships are available. Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them, is the true measure of our thanksgiving. These are always inspirational trips as we help a needy family build an Amor home. To us it’s more like a garage, but this structure with a concrete floor, a good roof, windows and a door is a generational life changing gift for these families. Susan Fletcher after a family trip said, “I might have been uncomfortable a few times that weekend, but the blessings I returned home with are immeasurable, and I would not have missed it for the world. So I encourage all of you – do this. Do this with your children. It can become a family tradition like no other.” At our 2013 Men’s Amor trip our small group of ten arrived at the Amor campground to find over 500 young adults! They had been there for their spring break week and had built 38 homes. 250 were from 1st Presbyterian Moraga Valley (near the bay area) and 250 were all they way from Great Britain (through and organization called Urban Saints)! After we left another group of 250 was...

Join fellow Christians around the world following the worldwide Anglican Communion in putting the Arabic letter N on facebook and twitter pages– This is the letter ISIS is painting on Christians doors in northern Iraq. In addition, properties marked by ISIS have also been marked as “property of the Islamic State.” Christians are being driven from their homes and murdered. Christians have lived there for two thousand years. The lesson in all this is that this proves what Jesus said: the world will persecute his followers. We must stand up in prayer as a witness to the Sovereign Lord and a witness against evil which the Lord defeated when the Son went to the cross when all the forces of evil sought to eliminate the True One but victory over those forces was proven in the Resurrection of our Lord. We await the consummation of His victory when He comes again. Meanwhile all who follow Jesus are His advance guard in a dark world, whose verdict has already been given, and we announce that verdict and the victory in prayer, worship, standing together for the Lord and completing the sufferings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
