We need compassionate people who care about Baltimore and want to see a transformation to come out this weekend to volunteer some of their time. Churches from as far as New Castle, PA are coming to evangelise in Baltimore and need all Christians in the area to unite with us to preach the Gospel and help those in need.
Jesus commanded us to go and make disciples of all nations, but are we even making disciples in our neighborhoods? We need churches to unite as The Hope Movement to pray with people, preach the Gospel, lead Bible studies, counsel, feed the hungry, share love with the community, and continue the work in transforming a vacant lot at 2324 E. North Ave. Baltimore, MD 21213 into a Haven of Hope Community Garden (As seen on WBAL TV).
These shirts are original designs of The Hope Movement with the purpose to help share the Gospel and make disciples. Image people seeing theology words which many have never heard of with a definition and Bible verse, this is a guarantee to spark conversation. These shirts are beautiful, stylish and unique but most importantly they are a powerful way to evangelize, share the Gospel, teach theology and bring glory to God.
Check out the work of The Hope Movement in May around the world for the glory of God (Soli Deo Gloria). In May The Hope Movement was able to provide hundreds of meals, provide scholarships to 30 orphans in Kenya, purchase Bibles in Kenya and Philippines.

The Character of God
The Holiness of God
- Your eyes are too pure to approve evil, and You cannot look on wickedness with favor. Habakkuk 1:13
- But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, and your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear. Isaiah 59:2
The Justice of God
- For the LORD is righteous, He loves righteousness; the upright will behold His face. Psalm 11:7
- But the LORD of hosts will be exalted in judgment, and the holy God will show Himself holy in righteousness. Isaiah 5:16
- God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day. If a man does not repent, He will sharpen His sword; He has bent His bow and made it ready. Psalm 7:11-12
The Depravity & Condemnation of Man
- For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
- For all of us have become like one who is unclean, and all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment Isaiah 64:6
- For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse; for it is written, ACCURSED IS EVERYONE WHO DOES NOT ABIDE BY ALL THINGS WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, TO PERFORM THEM. Galatians 3:10
We have been blessed to have a life-long friendship with Dwight Spears who moved to the Philippines to help share the Gospel. His ministry focuses on the Gospel especially in distributing the Word of God to areas where they desperately need Bibles. His passion for souls and the sufficient Word of God has united us and we were honored to able to purchase a case of Bibles which are being shipped to the Philippines. We hope to continue to collect Bibles and send them on an on-going basis and look forward to see how God uses our friendship for His glory.
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen. With sadness but also with complete trust in our sovereign God and optimism for what is to come we have to announce the elimination of the project 001 Haven of Hope Center in Escuintla, Guatemala. Funds have been limited as we need to increase our number of monthly donors and we were not receiving enough donations each month starting at the end of 2016 and entering into 2017 to be able to pay salaries to our staff operating the center. After informing the staff and giving them two months payment to help in this transition they decided not to continue the work although we were going to continue to offer monthly support to this center as The Hope Movement is the founder and operator of this center and just operate with volunteers as we do with our other centers and less days a week. So the center under The Hope Movement will temporarily close and we will work on raising funds to reopen in Escuintla in another location if it's God’s will and focusing more on planting a church, evangelism, Christian education in a school for children with the greatest financial needs and nutrition. In the meantime we have three other projects in Guatemala which are providing the same services in Nuevo Amanacer (Project 003), San Juan Sacatepequez (Project 004) and Villa Lobos (Project 005). We will also be working on evangelistic missions to many areas including Escuintla. Along with our work in Guatemala we are now caring for orphans and widows in Africa and expanding our spread of the Gospel to many nations including the United States.
On April 8, 2017 group of volunteers worked at our transformed vacant lot on North Ave. in Baltimore City which is now the Haven of Hope Community Garden. We put up a small banner in the front of the garden which says "Need Prayer" and a Bible verse from Romans. As we were working in the garden people began to come to us seeking prayer not for things but for a change in their life. One lady came running up to us and asked where was the sign about Grace. I had just moved the sign to the side and she said I have been clean for 5 months and everytime I walk past this Garden I look at that sign and it reminds me of God's grace and my need to change. The sign says Grace is not an excuse to remain in your sin but a reason to love him more fully. The gospel was preached as many came seeking prayer and seeds were planted. To God be the glory.
Missions is an Impossibility apart from the Power of God. All men of every culture are born radically depraved, at enmity with God, and restraining the truth. The conversion of a man and the advancement of missions are an absolute impossibility apart from the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit in the regeneration of the individual and the life of the church. Many church growth strategies and mission methodologies often overlook this essential truth.
God has provided a wheelchair for this precious little girl in El Salvador. The Hope Movement is honored to be used by God for His glory and to partner with our dear brother Oscar Alfaro.
