AUGUST NEWSLETTER

HOPE

Our hearts grieve and our prayers are with the families of the twenty-two lost, the twenty-six injured, and the countless others impacted by the August 3rd shooting in our city.

In the midst tragedy, we seek to follow Jesus’ example by appropriately responding and ministering to our hurting city. This month, rather than pass out our usual missing children’s poster, we handed out a poster to deliver a message of HOPE.

El Paso CARES believes every human life is made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and is immeasurably valuable - no matter their language, ethnicity worldview, or religion. In light of the senseless evil unleashed on our community, we take courage in Jesus Christ who is our assurance for an eternity in heaven in the very presence of God where there will be no more death, mourning, crying or pain (Revelation 21:4)

If you or someone you know has been affected by this or is in need of prayer, please let us know.

If you or someone you know has been affected by this or is in need of prayer, please let us know.

Our Prayer

In our grief and despair, in the midst of hate, in our sense of helplessness, in the face of violence, we lean on the Lord. We pray for families of those who have been killed. We pray for our community that has lost it's sense of safety. We pray for wounds to be healed. We pray that hope would be found in Christ alone.

The Valley of Vision


Lord, high and holy, meek and lowly, Thou hast brought me to the valley of vision, where I live in the depths but see Thee in the heights; hemmed in by mountains of sin I behold Thy glory. Let me learn by paradox that the way down is the way up, that to be low is to be high, that the broken heart is the healed heart, that the contrite spirit is the rejoicing spirit, that the repenting soul is the victorious soul, that to have nothing is to possess all, that to bear the cross is to wear the crown, that to give is to receive, that the valley is the place of vision. Lord, in the daytime stars can be seen from deepest wells, and the deeper the wells the brighter Thy stars shine; let me find Thy light in my darkness, Thy life in my death, Thy joy in my sorrow, Thy grace in my sin, Thy riches in my poverty, Thy glory in my valley.
