As the family of God, here's how we can do something extraordinary together ...

Professor and former seminary president, Haddon Robinson, wrote the following:

"One grasshopper seems insignificant as it leaps across a field. But when it joins forces with other grasshoppers, the resulting swarm can soon devour all the vegetation in its path.

"Grasshoppers demonstrate the power of working together for a common cause. What they cannot do individually, they are able to accomplish together. In the Old Testament book of Proverbs, the wise man Agur observed, 'The locusts have no king, yet they all advance in ranks' (30:27).

"We can learn a lesson from these little creatures. Followers of Christ can make far greater advances for Him when they act and pray together than they could ever make alone. When Christians are united in serving the Lord, they can become a mighty force for God in fulfilling His purposes for the church.

"Although the New Testament urges us to possess a personal faith in Jesus Christ, it says nothing at all about a private faith. We need other believers, and other believers need us (Hebrews 10:24-25)."

Indeed, Hebrews 10:24 says, "Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works."

I share the above because I want to motivate you to an act of love and good works that you and I can accomplish only if we work together. That work is providing people who need help with the help they need, and the means of making that possible is through an exciting new ministry called the Scott Free Clinic.

Following is a video that provides the vision and details about this ministry, including a couple stories about real lives that have already been changed through the counseling we have offered in the past, and below the video are key details captured from the video for you to consider.

The Scott Free Clinic can be a means of God's people coming together for God to change thousands of lives, support pastors, and help improve churches locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. But we cannot do this vital work without YOU!. We have a LOT of people just waiting for these services to become available, and many people are praying for this ministry. What we need now are men and women of God who will support this ministry as sponsors so that we can provide people with the help they need.

I ask that you please take the time to view the video and/or read the information below, and prayerfully consider becoming a sponsor of this ministry. Whether you give a one-time donation, or give monthly, quarterly, bi-annually, annually, or randomly, any amount you can provide WILL be a great blessing to this ministry in its commitment to be used by God to change lives, support pastors, and improve churches. If you have any questions about this ministry, please contact me (my contact information is provided below).

Thank you, and God bless you!

Dr. James Scott, Jr.
Founder & President
Scott Free Clinic

The Scott Free Clinic is an independent, non-profit parachurch ministry currently in developmental stages.
