Cleveland Indians pitcher, Justin Masterson, is teaming up with Bright Hope to bring Hope to those living on less than $1 a day.
Justin Masterson and his wife Meryl will be working with Bright Hope to help raise awareness of the plight of the extreme poor around the world and the positive affect the local church can have on transforming lives in those communities.
"God gives us gifts and we are to use them for His purposes. I’m looking forward to contributing to what God is doing through Bright Hope."
In November 2013 Justin and Meryl will join a team and head to the Mathare Valley slum in Nairobi, Kenya to participate in the projects Bright Hope’s partners are executing in that region of the world.
"Meryl and I have received many blessings in this life and strongly believe that to whom much is given much is expected. Bright Hope’s goal to partner with the local church to help bring transformation to some of the poorest regions of the world is something we are humbled to be a part of."
Masterson, who has a strong faith in God, grew up in the church and strives to live out his faith on a daily basis. He and his wife have experience working with extreme poor communities and found Bright Hope to be a natural fit for an organization they would like to put their support behind.
Check back for updates on the Masterson's involvement. Until then, we thank God for the opportunity to raise awareness of -- and most importantly bring Hope to -- those living on less than $1 a day through people like Justin and Meryl.
