WNI and Social Justice Among the Poor

Updated: Mar 12

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?”

- Isaiah 58.6-7


We see the Kingdom of God in practical and simple ways manifested among us. It goes beyond mere words and beautiful speeches.

Actually, the Word of God in our heart becomes practical actions that reflect the love of God to others. As is written in Matthew 25.3440, the small things we do—feeding the hungry, giving shelter to the homeless, clothing the one who has no clothes, visiting those who are in jail, caring for those who are sick, etc—reflect the character of our Father in us.


This is what WNI has been doing since the beginning. Our aim is to fight hunger and poverty through sustainable agriculture and community development projects in vulnerable communities worldwide.


We care for the physical body, but also for the lost soul. Truly social Justice, without the gospel of the Kingdom, doesn’t bring real transformation to the community.

This is why one of our projects is a Bible School that is preparing 80 students from Indonesia not only in missiology studies, but also in sustainable agriculture and other skills to impact even the most remote village of Indonesia and other countries. he Truth of the gospel will be translated into practical actions according to need, which will bring transformation to these communities.


In the same way, we can’t see the hundreds of families starving in the refugee camps in the Middle East and not bring relief to their tired souls and bodies. If we are aware that there are families dying in the remote rural villages of Southeast Asia, we will show the love of God to them by bringing medical assistance to their communities.


We choose to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of this yoke. We can’t stand by and watch injustice happening and not do anything to stop it. We understand that this won’t happen by our own strength, but by the Spirit of God, who will give us the right strategy, according to the need. And He is already doing this.


Please reach out your hand to us as we fulfill God’s mission. Together we will go further.
