Iris Townsend

Founder H.O.P.E. LLC

Iris wrote the book Helping Others to Pursue Endurance because of a vision that God gave to her. Her book and Subsequent development of H.O.P.E. ministries is meant to help to bring encouragement and inspiration to help others. To help others to understand the importance of God’s gift of Salvation and everlasting life. To also realize God’s love for the journey we must take in life. She felt led by God to share her testimony and the importance of accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Having faith in times of either comfort or difficulty can allow one to discover joy and peace in God’s presence. Eternal life is every Christian’s destination and God prepared the inheritance for us before the foundation of the world.

Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea I will help thee; yea I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41:10
