We have set the foundation “In His Place” from the thought that the Lord has given us a heart to occupy use with those people, who are ill or weak , who can' t keep themselves standing and are locked out by the society, Christians or not Christians .
We are for fellow men who need help. Your fellow man is everyone, who comes on your path. It is not important if you know the Lord, it matters that He knows you. For if He is there for you, you jump with Him over a wall.
We can buy a complex for the amount of E 250.000 in the South of France, where we want to take care of people by means of the Gospel, who have to get out of there surrounding area. We pray, that the Lord will be our Provider. We believe, that the Lord is able to do more than we pray for or realize.
It`s more then 40 years ago, that I Gerrit experienced myself what the correct help and the belief in Jesus Christ can mean for you. I converted myself to Him after a youth of alcohol, drugs and admissions in several relief clinics. Just after me conversion , I really got free from the alcohol and drugs.
In 2003 I, Catherine got a burn-out. We thank God, that He took me out of this. We were getting a lot of strength out of psalm 107, wherein is written: 'They cried out then to the Lord in their anxiety and He delivered them out of all their fears'.
When you cry out to the Lord, He will help you also, for it's a fact that He will be there for you in your weaknesses to help you. That's why it`s so important, that people, who need a place, where they can relax or where they can kick the habit in the right place.
That's why our request to you is, let your heart speak and give minimal 1 euro for our foundation. The account number is: NL32 RABO 0132648822 in the name of foundation 'In His Place'
Gerrit and Catherine van der Zwan
