A child’s eyes haunt Wendell Mettey, founder of Matthew 25: Ministries. Mettey spoke with the child’s father as he waited hours for treatment for his critically-burned infant. “Take our picture so all can see the conditions in our country,” the Nicaraguan father said.
Mettey has never forgotten the child, father, or the needs he saw. Mettey has dedicated the years since to improving life in Nicaragua and other war-torn or impoverished areas around the world.
Are Not My People Worthy? tells how a minister from Cincinnati found himself called to alleviate pain and suffering in the U.S. and in nations thousands of miles away. It details how Mettey’s organization, Matthew 25: Ministries, answers the New Testament call of Matthew 25:34-40 by bringing food and water to the hungry and thirsty, clothing and housing to the naked and strangers, and care to those sick and in prison.
Are Not My People Worthy? also reveals how the voice of God encouraged Mettey to think bigger, dream extravagantly, and accomplish unheard-of humanitarian feats with the help of many volunteers, generous corporations, brave government officials, the U.S. Air Force, and other caring people and organizations.
