Because I could no longer in good conscience work within the religious system I was then subject to, I spent three months in earnest prayer seeking the Lord for direction. The vision of a parachurch organization was born in which El Shaddai would become the source of supply for His people in a socialist nation.

Scripture leaped out at me highlighting the motivation in Jesus’ heart as He walked among the people.

Mt 9:36

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were harassed and scattered, like sheep without a shepherd. (WEB)

Mt 14:14

Jesus went out, and he saw a great multitude. He had compassion on them, and healed their sick. (WEB)

Mt 20:34

Jesus, being moved with compassion, touched their eyes; and immediately their eyes received their sight, and they followed him. (WEB)

Mr 1:41

Being moved with compassion, he stretched out his hand, and touched him, and said to him, “I want to. Be made clean.” (WEB)

Mr 6:34

Jesus came out, saw a great multitude, and he had compassion on them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd, and he began to teach them many things. (WEB)

Lu 7:13

When the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said to her, “Don’t cry.” (WEB)

Mr 8:2

“I have compassion on the multitude, because they have stayed with me now three days, and have nothing to eat. (WEB)

Heb 5:2 The high priest [Jesus] can deal gently [have compassion, metriopatheo] with those who are ignorant and going astray, because he himself is also surrounded with weakness. (WEB)

Strong’s Concordance: 3356. metriopayew metriopatheo 

from a compound of the base of 3357 and 3806; to be moderate in passion, i.e. gentle (to treat indulgently):–have compassion.

You would have thought “the Church” would be thrilled at a testimony of God’s provision in a foreign land….but, alas, no! I came under attack and severe criticism from some leaders. One even went so far as to say that anyone who aligned themselves with or cooperated with Fundacion Efrain VZW was going against him personally!

Flying Under the Wire…

Jg 6:11 The angel of Yahweh came, and sat under the oak which was in Ophrah, that pertained to Joash the Abiezrite: and his son Gideon was beating out wheat in the winepress, to hide it from the Midianites. (WEB)

Like Gideon, I worked alone with a rag tag bunch of marginalized believers supplying food and selling second hand household items to help the needy foreigners integrate in Belgium and acquire funds for the ministry to operate. Today, with that same inclination as a good steward of God’s resources, I think it’s such a shame to throw away perfectly good and useful items! To that end…

Please Take a Look at:

To Exhort You

1Pe 3:8 Finally, be all like-minded, compassionate, loving as brothers, tenderhearted, courteous, (WEB)

1Jo 3:17 But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need, and closes his heart of compassion against him, how does the love of God remain in him? (WEB)

Be on the lookout for more in the Saga of FE‘s beginnings!
