WallBuilders is an organization dedicated to presenting America's forgotten history and heroes, with an emphasis on the moral, religious, and constitutional foundation on which America was built – a foundation which, in recent years, has been seriously attacked and undermined. In accord with what was so accurately stated by George Washington, we believe that "the propitious [favorable] smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation which disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself has ordained."

The story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) gives a clear picture of God’s desire for us to help those in desperate need wherever we find them. After describing how the Samaritan rescued a hurting man whom others had passed by, Jesus told His hearers, “Go and do likewise.” For over 40 years, Samaritan’s Purse has done our utmost to follow Christ’s command by going to the aid of the world’s poor, sick, and suffering. We are an effective means of reaching hurting people in countries around the world with food, medicine, and other assistance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This, in turn, earns us a hearing for the Gospel, the Good News of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

As our teams work in crisis areas of the world, people often ask, “Why did you come?” The answer is always the same: “We have come to help you in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.” Our ministry is all about Jesus—first, last, and always. As the Apostle Paul said, “For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake” (2 Corinthians 4:5, NIV).

Carla's Story

Life is full of ups and downs and I, like you, have had my share of both.  Some of my darkest moments include the death of close family members and close friends, divorce, and financial issues.  I can remember moments in my life when I didn’t want to get out of bed, life was just too overwhelming.

But you know what consistently pulled me back?  My faith.  No matter how dark or bleak a situation seemed, I always knew in my heart that God had a plan for my life and that I didn’t know the big picture.  Many times throughout my life, I’ve said, “This burden is too heavy, I can’t do this alone” and have handed it all over to God.

  
But sometimes it’s hard to hand it all over.  Sometimes I’ll think, You can just work on this piece, I’ll handle the rest, and I’ve needed a physical, tangible reminder of my faith.  Somewhere deep inside I always knew I would make it back into the light and I did.

Angel Pins are a great physical and tangible reminder of faith.  You may not realize it, but when you wear an angel pin, as troubles come your way, you will unintentionally glance at your angel pin and subconsciously be reminded of your faith.  Wearing an angel pin also tells everyone that sees it that you are a believer.  What a large statement for a little trinket.
