A Church of the Nazarene in Washington State provided funds to a compassionate ministry in South Africa. According to the congregation's Mission Match application materials, ""The goal of the project is to raise awareness of the needs of the ministry center and of the people they serve who are suffering from extreme poverty and AIDS-related problems and to raise financial support for the center." According to Mission Match follow-up reports from the congregation, the project goal was "to help meet the physical needs -- food, school uniforms, and school fees -- of children and families living in a South African community. This goal was accomplished." Further follow-up comments said, "In spite of many local financial needs and stress affecting our local congregation, the awareness of those greater needs compelled many to give regardless of their own circumstances. There was great rejoicing once the goal was met and exceeded. This has helped us, as a congregation, to see beyond our own needs to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Mission Match has been a great encouragement to us."
