HELP for all Nations
In 2003, a team of missionaries was sent from Germany to the United States with the purpose to plant a ministry among young
homeless people and drug addicts.
This ministry is called HELP for all Nations and is a branch of HELP International, a German based missions movement that has successfully planted similar ministries in Austria, Russia, China, Thailand, Mongolia, Uganda, India and in the Philippines.
HELP for all Nations is a non-denominational, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Our main emphasis is:
Evangelism and World Missions
Discipleship and Training
Serving the Poor and Needy
Reaching out especially to the Young Generation
All those activities are based on Worship and Prayer
What We Do
At this time, HELP for all Nations is working in Austin, Texas and is reaching
out especially to young homeless people. It is our hearts desire to lead them
into a saving and life changing relationship with the LORD Jesus Christ. We
believe that by the power of the Holy Spirit cycles of addiction and
hopelessness will be broken and the whole person (spirit, soul and body) will
In addition to our daily outreaches, we provide a training program, called LIFE Training, for those who want to begin their journey off the streets.
We also want to serve the body of Christ and support the unity among Christians. Contacts and relationships to groups and churches shall be strengthened and extended.
Since the first days of our work in America, we have been doing outreaches to the streets of Austin.
Now after seven years, we have become a part of street life and the people know us well.
We have been able to build countless wonderful relationships, have prayed for many people and touched them with the love of Jesus. Some gave their life to the Lord wanting to start over again. To others, we could render practical help with sleeping bags, food, bus tickets, socks and whatever the needs are.
Cream And Sugar
We have remodelled a 1969 travel trailer into a mobile coffee shop. This is a
place to hang out - a place where people can experience the presence and the
power of God.
It is a place where we can pray for people and talk to them without the distractions that we have to deal with on the sidewalk.
Since its launch in October 2007 this project has been a huge success. In addition to the trailer we have created a website to stay in touch with the travellers that we have met.
You can find more detailed information on the Cream and Sugar project page.
Statement Of Faith
We believe, that the Bible is the inspired, unfailing, and sovereign Word of God; that there is only one God, who is eternal and three in One - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ as God That He was born of a virgin, That He lived a life without sin, That He has done many miracles.
We believe in His crucifixion at Calvary, where He died for the sin of all people, His resurrection, He ascended to the right hand of God.
We believe that He will come back again to reign in power and glory, And in the wonderful hope - that He will draw the church to Himself when He returns again!
We believe that repentance is the only way to be delivered from sin, That everybody has to be born again by the power of the Holy Spirit in order to be saved, That Jesus' work of deliverance at the cross also holds physical healing, which can be received by praying a prayer of faith.
We believe in the resurrection of the saved to eternal life, and that the lost will go to eternal condemnation.
We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit, who enables people to live a holy life, and that the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to everybody, who ask to receive them.
Visiting the biggest American University in Austin, Texas, in 1998, Walter Heidenreich encountered a great openness for the moving of the Holy Spirit. At the same time he met lots of needs:
While praying on the campus I saw many young people living on the streets, feeling lonely, without love and joy. I felt God urging me to help these young people. Back in the sixties, when the "Jesus People Movement" had its worldwide triumphant advance among hippies, drug addicts, people in the occult and young runaways in the US, it all began at American universities. Many of these former hippies have become wonderful leaders in the kingdom of God. Could it be that God ignites another "Jesus People Movement" in order to release an even greater revival in this nation ?
