Hope for Today
Relationship with Mt. Bethel
Mt. Bethel and Hope for Today enjoy a beautiful working partnership and have for many years through mission trips, child sponsorships, and financial support.
Reverend Dr. Peter and Esther Pereira established Hope for Today (HFT) in 1997 to provide compassion ministries and leadership training to spread the Gospel throughout South Asia. The mission focuses on sharing Jesus with the more than 400 million unreached people of South Asia through Compassion Ministries and leadership training. Its tools and programs meet the needs of the whole person and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in culturally appropriate and effective ways
- Compassion Care Ministries are calibrated to reach those most vulnerable, marginalized, and facing extreme challenges. Some of the services they provide are residential homes for children, offering basic needs for those on the streets, vocational training programs that lead to self-sufficiency, and weeklong VBS.
- Leadership Development conferences prepare men and women with biblical principles of leadership. ILI’s Eight Core Values are shared as part of this ministry. This has led to multiple church plants.
