Mission

We were founded in 1998 to assist in meeting the needs of street children; orphaned, abandoned and abused babies and teens internationally. Through our International Projects, we have grown to include ministry to the elderly, widows, unemployed poor as well as providing medical care to those living in extreme poverty. Projects in the USA involve ministry to the homeless, supplies for the poor and disadvantaged, veterans outreach, education projects on sustainable agriculture. In addition, acknowledging a good education is crucial to excelling in the future, we have worked with local schools to provide scholarships. Training has also be implemented for National Church Pastors and church leaders. We currently have projects in Mongolia, India, Europe, Panama and the USA.
