Jesus is on the move. Hearts are turning and lives are changing. We are blessed to be a part of the GREAT HARVEST taking place. We are called to WIN THE LOST TO JESUS.
Religion – pure and undefiled – In it’s most simple yet complex form – is to serve the poor. We want to be pure of heart and focused on how we can bless the "least of these" in our world.
We want to INSPIRE the church to live passionately for Christ and pursue the Holy Spirit living in and through them. An inspired, passionate church is an active church; and an active church is an effective church.
‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers
and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
- Matthew 25:40
In Mexico, we established missionaries to work in remote villages - only accessible by boat - to feed very poor children lunch at school. We feed about 400 kids per week. The beauty of this is that it has opened up opportunities to introduce entire families to Jesus.
Additionally, this program has led to sponsorships for college and countless other activities to improve the lives of the children and families of these villages.
In Ukraine, we founded 28 beautiful homes for abandoned children.
After the breakup of the Soviet Union, alcoholism, suicide and joblessness left hundreds of thousands of children abandoned and homeless, living on the streets and in a network of underground sewers. In response to that need, we began to work with the local churches and governments to build homes for those abandoned children. We purchased a hotel, several unfinished mansions, several closed orphanages that the government couldn’t afford to keep going. After significant restoration and modifications, we made them into homes for abandoned and homeless children. We established 28 of these homes. Our goal was to create an environment as close to a normal home as possible and a growing up experience that would bring out the potential in every child. These homes have served more than 2000 children – many of whom now have families of their own and successful careers.
In Rwanda, we are building a community in the area called Bugesera. This is an area that was particularly devastated by the recent genocide. Sadly, many churches invited their congregations to take refuge in the church buildings only to be betrayed and murdered in the churches. The result has been an understandable mistrust for any church.
We moved in and began by building a school where children can attend for free.
We have begun hosting a thriving church in the school, built a community kitchen called Bountiful Harvest, and are currently constructing a community center to host the church, a bible school, community gatherings, and computer skills training.
