Two of my close friends have traveled to Brazil with a man named Jim Flickinger to see firsthand the good that Amazon Relief is doing, and they have both come home in awe of the difference that this ministry makes for so many. (They share their stories in parts two and three.) Jim & his wife, Lois, are the most kind, humble people you’ll ever meet, and they started this ministry in 1985. They are from right here in Grand Rapids, and are known for feeding the poor on the streets here in our city and in the Amazon.
Jim says, ““We may not be able to solve all the world’s problems, but we can solve some.”
Watch the below video and consider adding this ministry to your places to give. What could be better than knowing that 100% of your donations are going to help the poor, the hungry, and the sick?
“Amazon Relief takes no money out of any donation for administrative costs, travel, mailings, or even the cost of this website (All these costs are paid by some “special angels” or from bank interest). Every dollar donated goes to those in need.”
