I’m Scott Perkins and welcome to Hurts and Hope. The goal of our ministry is to encourage those who Hurt through the testimonies of others who have experienced similar Hurt and found Hope.
Unfortunately, pain and suffering does not discriminate against the good or the bad. Misfortune and affliction can happen to anyone and we often find ourselves asking why do bad things happen to good people.
It’s because we live in a fallen and wounded world afflicted by sickness, death, divorce, natural disasters, wars, drug- alcohol-and pornography addictions, sexual and physical abuse, failed relationships, disappointment, unemployment, bankruptcy, and so on.
Growing up in the south, I have attended church my entire life. I grew up thinking church was a place where all people were good, had it all together, and no problems. Everyone looked happy, dressed nice, smiled when they greeted one another, sat and listened to the pastor teach on love, grace, forgiveness, and salvation, then went home, ate lunch and took a nap. However, having served my church as an elder, I learned struggles for those inside the church walls are the same for those outside the church walls.
So simply stated, our goal for this ministry is help anyone who struggles and encourage them through the testimony and witness of others who have gone before them with similar struggles. We want to provide a place of anonymity and privacy. Many people struggle and often times are embarrassed or simply won’ or don’t ask for help. We want our content to be available to anyone who asks.
With this in mind and for those who are financially able and share a desire to reach out and help others, please consider giving. Hurts And Hope is a 501c3 Tax Exempt Charitable Organization and all contributions are tax deductible. Your contributions will be used to create or purchase DVD’s and are provided to anyone free of charge.
Verse – Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
