LoveIndeed is a project developed by members of the Diocese of South-West America and led by the guidance of its Shepherd, His Grace Alexios Mar Eusebius. LoveIndeed is part of the Prayer Fellowship & Mission Work wing of the Diocese, which is directed by Reverend Father K. Y. Wilson.
Helping others and tithing is an essential part of the Christian Life, as His Grace stresses in a letter to all of the parishes in the diocese:
"While we are spiritually nurtured, we also need to make a difference in the world through our charitable efforts for our Lord said, "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me" (St. Matthew 25:40). While we have many goals for our Diocese, none of this can be achieved without the proper tithe from each member of our Diocese. Tithing is a basic teaching found in both the Old and New Testament that we must incorporate in our daily life. When we set apart a portion of our earnings on a monthly basis and share it with those in need, we should consider it as an offering of thanksgiving to God Almighty for the blessings we receive from Him."
LoveIndeed provides the means necessary for the members of the Diocese of South-West America to provide direct help to those in need. Funds assigned to beneficiaries are given directly to them so that the full impact of a donor's wish can be felt, with every effort made to minimize administrative costs in the process.
