The wise man built his house on rock.

Matthew 7:24

Today’s scripture comes from a well known parable about the man who built his house on the rock, and the man who built his house on the sand. Jesus is our rock – how can we build on him in our lives?

World Gifts

A shelter, wherever it is built, is a crucial thing for everyone. Today’s World Gift provides a shelter to a family who have lost everything.

Branca lives in a village in Mozambique. When Cyclone Idai hit, her village was completely submerged. Villagers were forced to take shelter in the treetops for four days before the waters receded.  

Branca’s home was completely destroyed so she needed to make an emergency shelter, quickly. When CAFOD reached Branca’s village, with the help of local experts, we provided the tools and materials to help her survive.
