About Hope Is Alive

Hope Is Alive was born out of a baptism of anguish; one in which the Lord share a vision of His heart for the precious souls who are lost. The “anguish of the heart” fueled our desire to share the Good News of Jesus Christ around the world and with a nation (American) and a people who have lost their way. It also brought about our “journey of trust;” in which our family traveled around that nation to connect with the remnant, while sharing the message of hope in Jesus with those we encountered.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness
unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
-Matthew 24:14
