SHPN Newsletter April-June 2013
Who Are We?
WELCOME to the Stop Hunger and Poverty Now website. We hope you will find this site interesting, informative AND inspiring. This 22-year-old ministry is active in helping migrant workers in the numerous camps scattered throughout Washington County west and southwest of Portland, Oregon. Stop Hunger and Poverty Now (SHPN for short) is a dynamic outreach to these people who form the backbone of our agricultural industry, but who live in desperately poor conditions. It was founded by Dennis and Charlotte Bischoff of Sherwood, Oregon in 1988. Moved by the suffering of the Ethiopian famine, they wanted to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged people in a tangible way. The Lord led them to start SHPN, to reach out to the poorest people in Oregon.
Thanks to generous donations of and for materials and labor, the warehouse is getting much-needed insulation for 2010!
We take food, clothing, useful implements, and the good news of Jesus Christ to these camps every year, from around April to September during the growing season when the camps are occupied. We have formed many lasting friendships with these individuals - men, women and children. On this site, I hope to acquaint you with them, with their lives and needs and how you might be able to make a positive difference even from a distance to empower them through this ministry. I will post our newsletters, and information on associated ministries that are developing through SHPN.
SHPN is a 501(c)(3) organization, so all of your contributions are completely tax-deductible. If you have any questions, or wish to make a contribution, please contact Dennis and Charlotte Bischof at 503-625-7460, or write to:
