Our international mission is: Transformation. We want to participate in the transformation of our world in two ways: spiritual and physical. First, we want to help communities naturally with fresh water and education. Second, we want to help local pastors and churches. We believe that if we first help with the natural needs, then the spiritual transformation will follow more effectively.
Our first project in 2005 was in the poor areas of Monterrey, Mexico. We built a home for a single mom and helped her start a childcare business. Since then, we have partnered with local pastors to build a neighborhood church.
In 2010, we started work in the Nigerian village of Izzi. We drilled the first well their community had ever seen. Instead of walking two miles for dirty water, they now had fresh drinking water next to the village church. Then, we built a school for their community. Watch the video of the video project by clicking here.
In 2015, we started our first project in Guatemala. We sent money to rescue 7 babies through World Help. We then adopted the village of Las Joyas. We will be providing: clean drinking water, new school facilities, new church building, self-sustaining businesses, and possibly homes for villagers. Check out this video of a church in MA who did the same type of project. CLICK HERE.
