When we think of ‘Fallout Shelter’, we tend to think of the ‘Cold War’ and the fear and alienation that came with it. We chose the name ‘Fallout Shelter’ because of what they actually represent: A place of safety, refuge, equipping, and hope.
We come across so many people that feel quite the opposite about their life and circumstances. People who are alone, unprotected, ill-equipped, and hopeless. Some of these people have been abused from the slavery of human trafficking; some have been attacked by the slavery of lies in their lives. Oppression is oppression. Broken is broken. Hurting is hurting.
We believe Christ came to restore us all to wholeness, and we desire to be an example of His power of healing grace and mercy. Our hearts are locked-in on redeeming and strengthening others and seeing them as God sees them. Helping others to see themselves through the Lord’s eyes is an essential desire for Fallout Shelter Ministries.
The Cold War is what is swirling fiercely all around us. It has brought about a lack of community, compassion without action, a lack of self-confidence and an increase of selfishness. The toxins of this Cold War will spread and grow unless we stand up, serve and fight.
We know that we are meant to be a part of the safe refuge, not part of the judging committee. Using what talents we have, we put our faith into action. We not only do what we can, we do what we think we cannot; watching God join the party and take it all up a notch.
