Merry Christmas from Heart to Heart Marriage & Family Ministries
As you enjoy this Christmas season, I trust that God will give you a joyous time celebrating our Saviour’s birth with your family and friends. Your interest in Heart to Heart Marriage & Family Ministries is so appreciated!
The need is great for this marriage ministry in Canada, as 41% of marriages end in divorce before reaching their 30th anniversary. The emotional pain caused by a marriage break up also has a devastating ripple effect on the children.
At Heart to Heart, our vision is to see every marriage become a loving union that creates a safe family haven, building a legacy of hope for future generations. The good news is that every marriage has a 100% chance of success when done God’s way! So our mission is to establish, enhance and equip strong marriage and family relationships by sharing life-changing Biblical truths in creative and engaging ways using a variety of events and media.
As we seek to highlight marriage as God intended, one of our priorities is to bring awareness to the spiritual battles that are taking place in every home. The simple truth is that every marriage is under attack. As Jesus tells us in John 10:10, the “thief” is out to “steal, kill, and destroy,” and this includes our marriages. In ministering to couples, we feel compelled to identify who the REAL enemy is (not our spouse!), where the REAL battlefield is (our minds), and expose Satan’s subtle schemes to ruin relationships! Also, we have the privilege of sharing the hope of Jesus, who concluded that same verse with, “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life” (New Living Translation).
Would you consider a monthly donation to strengthen the Heart to Heart ministry? Your support enables our Heart to Heart team to be “marriage missionaries,” bringing hope into a mission field where there is such a great need with so many hurting couples. We are excited about greatly expanding our impact in 2017, but we can’t do it without your help.
You can make a monthly or single donation on our website by clicking “Donate Now" at the bottom of each page. If you prefer to mail a cheque, you can mail it to Heart to Heart Marriage and Family Ministries, Box 5100, Burlington, Ontario, L7R 4M2.
Thank you for being a big encouragement to Ann and me as we follow the Lord’s calling on our lives in marriage ministry.
Have a Merry Christmas!
With you in discovering marriage as God intended,
Rev. Ron Mainse
President, Heart to Heart Marriage & Family Ministries
