Confident and Assured Hope
The House Of Rachel
The House of Rachel was founded in 2014 and formally launched on the 21st May 2016 as an Inter-Denominational Apostolic-Prophetic Movement and a registered Non-Profit Organisation –founded on Christ Centred values –which is serving primarily as a Women and Children Ministry -aimed at helping reduce poverty and teaching communities to be self –reliant, by empowering women of all ages (both spiritually and physically) and promoting child care and development through programmes aimed at freeing the children from spiritual, economic and physical poverty through regeneration and preservation of moral values.
We are about love and giving back hope that come true (renewal of faith); reviving dreams and visions, giving back the community a chance of restoration by allowing God to restore it.
The House of Rachel derives its name from Rachel in the Bible. Rachel cried when she was giving birth in Genesis 35: 12. Rachel was giving birth, she was weak and weeping, but she was told not to despair because she has another son. Her tears were not only because of her pains but they were also of joy at the thought of what was being birthed, they were about the new birth, a baby, it made her to experience surging love in time of weeping -her child, her hope for the future. It is about having hope in the most trying times in the lives of people… the hope that come true, Hebrew 6:11.
Each time in the bible when Rachel is shown weeping it did not end there, there was a new life coming forth. In Jeremiah 31: 15 there is a voice of Rachel crying but in verse 16 there is wiping away of tears. ‘The Lord says’ Do not weep any longer, for I will reward you’ says the Lord. ‘Your children will come back to you from the distant land of the enemy’ says the Lord. There is hope for your future’, says the Lord.’ Your children- (meaning anything, any situation that you see as a challenge in your life) – will come again to their own land-(will be restored, settled and have a solution).
WEEP BUT LET YOUR TEARS BE WATER TO THE SEED OF YOUR BRIGHT FUTURE, THERE IS CONFIDENT HOPE!
