“I was amazed at the generosity shown to virtual strangers”
Last fall, Norm and I began raising funds for a member of our church family who was suffering with Lyme Disease. I had heard of 1213 and had mentioned it to the family, asking permission to send 1213 a request on their behalf. They agreed, but before I could even contact them, 1213 contacted ME offering to help this family. I was amazed at the generosity and kindness shown to virtual strangers. But then again, in the Lord’s church, no one is a stranger, are they?

“1213 helps Christians reach out to their brothers and sisters”
Just as it is sometimes difficult for local churches to provide for the needs of afflicted Christians, it is also sometimes difficult for God’s children who are more well off to provide the time, service, and donations they are capable of giving to assist those Christians in need. 1213 helps bridge these gaps by enabling Christians near and abroad to give as they are able and reach out to their brothers and sisters in the Lord.

“1213 provides information about Christians that need help”
I believe we all have a desire to do good within us and a lot of times just don’t know how to do it. We don’t know who needs help and organizations like 1213 provide that information. It’s able to point to Christians that need help and it allows us avenues as individuals to be able to do good work that we desire to do as Christians.

“I pray you continue to do this”
I think it’s hands of God and I pray you continue to do this in the future and help, because many people are in my situation… probably worse than mine.
~ Gabby O, Wife of Evangelist in Romania
“There are a lot of Christians that have needs”
There are a lot of Christians that have needs, but we just don’t know about them. 1213 does know about them and they are in a position to help and if we can help this organization to help them, I think that’s a great thing.
~ David M, Evangelist
“1213 provides an amazing service”
From matching thousands of dollars to provide orphans with a forever home, to answering my call for a one-time gift to help a fixed-income widow of a gospel preacher get her car repaired and back on the road, these folks come through. 1213 provides an amazing service. They care. And…they are the real-deal.
~ Wilson A, Evangelist
“1213 has made a huge difference for me”
I would really strongly encourage people to support 1213. It has made a huge difference for me and I know that there are other people out there like me who are struggling and their family and friends and their church family are doing everything that they can, but maybe somebody else could help. It’s a very special resource that 1213 has put together that allows Christians all over to know about and help one another in a way that wasn’t necessarily always there before.

“1213 provides a way for Christians to live the gospel”
How much more can we be like the church – or like Jesus, for that matter – than to take care of each other in our needs, to bear one another’s burdens, to extend the grace of God in a palpable way? And that’s precisely what 1213 has enabled: to provide a way for Christians all over to sacrifice and actually live the gospel.
~ Thailer J, Evangelist
“Organizations like 1213 help provide homes for children”
Not every Christian family may be able to provide a home for a child. But, by helping organizations like 1213, you can provide the funds that will help another Christian family provide a home for that child, and that’s one way of fulfilling the command to take care of these children.
~ Tom H, Evangelist
“I was amazed how quickly 1213 responded”
I was amazed how quickly 1213 responded to the needs of my friend when I sent them a brief summary of her financial needs. The process was simple and Rob was helpful and friendly. Thank you 1213 for all you do!

“1213 wants to be involved in people’s lives”
When somebody like 1213 wants to be involved in the real life of people, that’s the real love the Lord expects.
~ Marion O, Evangelist in Romania
“I am very thankful to 1213 for helping us solve our problem”
I am very thankful to 1213 for helping us to solve our problem that is heavy for us and which we could not carry for ourselves without your help. It is a big comfort not only to us but also for the brethren in the congregation here in General Santos City in the southern Philippines. It is our heartfelt prayer that God will continue to bless you and hoping that many brethren will also be helped through this organization.
~ Joy J, Evangelist in the Philippines
“We were very fortunate 1213 was there”
We were very fortunate that 1213 was there and that we had a place that we could go to asking for help to meet this situation.
~ Bobby J
“1213 stepped in and provided financial support”
In 2012 our daughter Nancy was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. Her medical bills exceeded $30,000 within the first year. Obviously this was more than what she and our family could afford to pay, so I am very grateful that 1213 stepped in and provided her with some much-needed financial support. I would encourage you to support this worthy organization.

“It is more blessed to give than receive”
I appreciate the good work being done by 1213 through the donations given by many individual saints. Christians in the U.S. are blessed with material means, which allows us to share with people in need. The service rendered by 1213 is just one way for our people to experience what Jesus said about helping people in need: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
~ Ron H, Evangelist
