Main Tendue – 31
The following is a description of a ministry project of Impact France in collaboration with Main Tendue 31.
Main Tendue – 31
For 20 years, Main Tendue (which means “outstretched hand”) has served marginalized individuals and families in the Toulouse region (31) in the south of France.
With an eye to meeting needs as closely as possible, through its expertise it has been able to innovate and provide solutions adapted to the vulnerability and exclusion these people face. Today, it is a recognized player in the fight against thee problems and is regularly called upon by social workers.
Main Tendue’s actions throughout the year create contact points with several hundred people in difficult situations. Over and above the purely material aspect of their work, they share the love of Christ through concrete acts: sharing and talking about faith, offering encouragement and guidance, and distributing Bibles, tracts and Christian literature.
Thanks to the selfless commitment of 130 volunteers, mainly affiliated with various evangelical churches in Toulouse, Main Tendue can have such an impact in its area. In addition, the team includes two paid staff: a social worker and a storekeeper, both outspoken evangelical Christians. To continue development of their initiatives and the need for stronger management, this ministry is considering recruiting a director.
However, current financial resources do not allow Main Tendue to finance this new position independently. This is where your faithful support can make a huge difference!
Your financial partnership will enable Main Tendue to strengthen its commitment to the most vulnerable, respond more effectively to the growing needs of the community, and demonstrate more fully the love of Christ through service.
