Continually Inspired, Unchanging Mission

Editor’s note: This year marks the 30th anniversary of CEDAR. This year is not only a year of celebration, but also a year that teaches us to move forward courageously by standing firmly on the foundation built by our predecessors.

In this issue of ‘Focus’, we will share exciting testimonies from our 30th anniversary event and the direction our ministry is headed towards. We encourage you to continue to walk alongside us on this journey. We also interviewed a staff member who has served at CEDAR for many years where she shared stories about being part of the organisation. (‘Learn a Little More’). Additionally, we lead everyone in reading the Bible through the eyes of marginalised communities, which allow us to change the way we interpreted scripture (‘Back to the Bible’). Lastly, we invite everyone to participate in our ‘Beyond Feeding the Poor’ initiative to witness and cheer on the transformation of lives.

However, for the poor living overseas, their main concern is not contracting the virus, but surviving. The safety of vaccines and travel restrictions are the least of their concerns.
