God uses scripture to challenge people to strive for peace and justice, and to honor Him by caring for the poor, hungry, and oppressed. For example: Matthew 25:35 reminds us, “For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in…” St. Paul’s Mission Board is committed to overseeing an active and prayerful response to local and global outreach.
