Convoy of Hope Partners with Empowered21 for “Hope in the Holy Land”
TULSA, Okla. – Empowered21 has confirmed that Convoy of Hope will be a compassion partner for their 2015 Global Congress. The two organizations will partner to host “Hope in the Holy Land,” an outreach created to show love and appreciation for those who reside in the region. The outreach is a part of the Jerusalem 2015 Empowered21 Global Congress to be held May 20-25, 2015.
“We are ecstatic to have Convoy of Hope serve as the compassion partner for this milestone event,” said E21 Global Director Ossie Mills. “Their impeccable reputation and relationships within the international community will be a perfect fit for Empowered21 as we seek to bless poor, suffering and underprivileged people in the region.”
Jerusalem 2015 is expected to bring thousands of Christians to the region for a time of teaching, praise and prayer. Main sessions will be held in the new Jerusalem arena, which is slated to open in the fall of this year.
“Hope in the Holy Land” will begin on May 20, 2015 as volunteers work to serve Jerusalem and the surrounding region through works of compassion. Outreach projects include cleaning streets and windows, distributing groceries and school supplies, and participating in a blood drive.
On May 23, 2015 “Hope in the Holy Land” will continue as volunteers host an outreach in Bethlehem. The outreach will include a kid zone, health clinic and grocery distribution.
“Convoy of Hope is thrilled to join Empowered21 to bring hope through service to the Holy Land,” said David Donaldson, co-founder of Convoy of Hope. “We plan to work with several local aid organizations that will bless the Holy Land and create a unique experience for volunteers.”
