South Asia

Water Well Built

We had the privilege to prayerfully assist in calling upon God, our Provider, and watched as funds were raised to put in a water well where we conducted a crusade in 2012 in South Asia, and hundreds received the Water of life.  Now, the local village no longer has to walk 2 to 3 miles to attain water for the basic needs of life.  God is faithful for all His children's needs.

South Asia

Church Plant

By faithful donors, we have now finished construction of this church and parsonage in India.  After the crusade in 2012, we started building. And now completed, this church has already been a central component to ministry in this region.  We continue to receive praise reports in how this church is a wonderful blessing for many in this area of South Asia.

Malawi 

Church Roofing

CHALINDA: When the call for help went out to help our Christian brothers and sisters, once again, faithful donors came forward.  We were able to roof this new house of the Lord before the rainy season began.  They are rejoicing in Chalinda because of love demonstrated for them.  Please help us pray, as more is needed to finish this construction project.

Malawi

Completed Church

DEDZA:  By faithful donors, we were able to finish this new church for the glory of the Lord.  During the  2013  outreaches, we  conducted several different evangelistic crusades in this area, and then had the privilege to dedicate this new house of worship, and the glory of the Lord filled the temple.  May it greatly shine the light of Christ, and lead many to salvation. 

Malawi

Repaired Water Well

CHIKUNI VILLAGE: In another village, where there is no electricity or running water, their water well  was broken, and they did not have the finances for the needed repair work.  Due to faithful donors, we were able to  fix this much needed source of water.  The villagers are praising God, and seeing His goodness  demonstrated in very essential ways.

Malawi

Church Plant

NTCHEU: We conducted a service in an open field of a village where there was no church previously.  For years, the Lord's people in this area had been praying for a church to be built. Due to faithful donors, this new house of the Lordis now complete. The people are greatly rejoicing because they never imagined that a church would ever exist in this area of Malawi.

PROJECTS

Malawi

Educational Classes

CHIKUNI VILLAGE:  We were grateful that we could further assist by contracting with a local English professor to teach  the  villagers English, and literacy classes, for those in need. We purchased needed learning material, and they began the lessons.  We thank the Lord these popular classes  continue, and people from other villages have been attending as well. 

Malawi 

Sewing Center

CHIKUNI VILLAGE:  After purchasing foot-powered sewing machines for the villagers, we also contracted with a professional seamstress to conduct sewing classes.  Now, we receive pictures, like the one above, showing the wonderful results.  These women can now better support themselves and their families.  They rejoice in Malawi for these blessings.

  

Kenya

Chicken Raising

In following the Lord's leading, we have joined with a struggling orphanage to adequately feed their 40 children with a consistent and nutritious diet.  As well, to generate futher income to better sustain the overall orphanage operations, the chicken, along with the extra eggs, are sold in the local markets, and producing a good source of steady revenue.

  

Kenya

Quail Raising

In an effort to increase revenue for the orphanage to become self-sustainable, a quail raising project was also established. Due to a favorable market for quail in Kenya, along with their nutritious eggs, this is yet another project that is further assisting to not only produce a varied and healthy diet for the children, but also to generate additional orphanage finances.

  

Kenya

Dairy Cattle

Through generous contributions, we were able to purchase two dairy cows in order to have fresh milk for the orphans, and as well, to sell the milk, and milk products, in the local markets to also generate extra income.  When the seller heard the cattle were for an orphanage, he also gave us a calf for free.  Just recently, our cattle gave birth to two additional calves. 

  

Kenya

Fishery

To further produce a varied diet and extra money for orphanage sustainability, we have also established a fishery in two ponds.  The main pond is stocked with Tilapia, a very marketable fish, along with catfish in the smaller pond.  So, the orphans are not only enjoying fish in their diet, they are also selling the fish in the local markets, increasing overall finances.

  

Kenya

Orphanage Gardening

Growing our own vegetables is yet another project to promote orphan health, as well as increasing revenue by selling the extra produce in the local markets.  We are growing a variety of vegetables for a well-rounded diet for the children, and at the same time, the children are also learing valued skills with the various projects to eventually support themselves.

  

Kenya

Rental Land Gardening

We are renting a tract of land for extra gardening produce for the orphanage, and for still another way to earn additional income for overall ophanage operations and sustainability. To bless the ministry pastors who are selflessly volunteeting their time, we are renting yet another tract of land for them to benefit from the grown produce, and extra income from sales.

  

Kenya

Sewing Center

We established a sewing center at  our orphanage.  Our senior pastor in Kenya is a tailor, his wife, a dressmaker.  Now with several machines, they can increase output, as well as secure local  school contracts to sew their student uniforms to gain  extra funds for the orphanage.  Our orphans will also learn this skill set to help support themselves one day.      

  

Central Asia

Bible Distribution

We are assisting a local pastor to advance the Kingdom of God in this predominantly Muslim country.  Regardless of the intense persecution, faithful Christians remain resolute to follow Jesus.  We are engaged in  Bible  distribution among  Christian communities, as  well  as other  activities. In this picture, these Christians were rejoicing to receive their first ever Bible. 

  

Central Asia

Clothing Distribution

We received notification that many children in the Christian communities that we are assisting did  not  have  adequate  clothing  to  keep themselves warm during the winter months. We were able to bless many children with clothing, including pants, shirts, sweaters, shoes and jackets. The children rejoiced to receive this blessing, like this little one of the Lord.

  

South Asia

Chicken Raising

This business was established to help our local church pastor in South Asia  to become self-sustaining.  Due to the the congregants being primarily Dalits and tribal people, extra measures were very much needed to increase overall ministry revenue.  As well, with added finances, we will be able to asssist more those with need in our Christian community and village.

  

South Asia

Sewing Center

Due to their societal position, our Christian community and village had very limited options to support themselves and their families. With many widows trying to feed their children, the need was desperate.  They  are now  rejoicing and praising  the Lord.  With over 100 women participating, and 10 machines, they are sewing in different groups, earning needed revenue. 

  

Malawi

Water Well Built

NTCHEU:  One of our church communities did not have clean drinking water.  Thanks to generous contributions, we were able to drill and establish  a water well, not just for our church community, but for the entire village and area with a clean source of drinking water.  They are rejoicing and praising God.  They have the Water of Life, and now have life-giving water as well.  

  

Malawi

Chicken Raising

NTCHEU:  We established this business to assist  our church community battling poverty in this underdeveloped area of the country, as well as help to fund ministry efforts.  Our local pastor is supervising this project that has not only  been a good additional food source, but this also has proved to be  an instrumental source of revenue to help transform this community.

  

Malawi

Church Plant

LILONGWE:  In an area of witchcraft, we have been conducting  evangelistic crusades. Many have received salvation in Christ, many healed, and many  delivered from demon possession. For the glory of God, we have planted the first church in this area.  Because of  the  great response to the gospel, church expansion is already needed due to substantial growth.

  

Malawi

Chicken Raising

LILONGWE:  The local pastor  for this church plant in this area of witchcraft was struggling to support his family, only being able to sell eggs that were donated to him. Now, he is rejoicing with this business, and is not only capable to support his family, but he is also assisting others with their basic needs of survival.  In time, as this business grows, even more will be blessed.

  

Malawi

Sewing Center

LILONGWE:  Many  living in  proximity of our church plant in this area are struggling with extreme poverty.  Numerous people are  facing  difficult challenges to meet their basic needs of survival, with many starving.  And now, they are rejoicing and praising God for this great opportunity to sew, and to make an income to support themselves and their families.  

  

South Asia

Water Filtration System

This new commercial-grade water filtration system at our church in South Asia has been a wonderful blessing, not only for the church members and villagers, but  also to the greater surrounding vicinity, because it is the only one of its kind in the entire area.  And now, due to its popularity, even many local businesses also come to purchase our clean drinking water.

  

Nepal

Bible Distribution

Once evangelistic outreaches concluded, we started follow-up and discipleship with the new believers.  I heard good reports from this effort, and a Bible distribution was needed .  The people were rejoicing to receive their first Bible, and now they have the Word of God for themselves to continue to study and grow in their new faith walk with our loving Lord. 

  

Nepal

Sewing Center

In  seeing  the  extent of the  poverty, and  no meaningful  options to try to earn a steady income for themselves, we started another sewing center in this country.  Especially after the earthquake, many of these women only saw a dim future, but now they are praising the Lord for His goodness with this blessed opportunity to sew, and to be able to support their families. 

  

Mozambique

Church Plant

Even though a very modest structure, this new house of the Lord was a very joyous occasion for the people of this remote village to receive.  They have been praying to have their own church where none existed before.  With time, we will build a more permanent church as we continue to develop this ministry location where no other foreign missionaries are working. 

  

Mozambique

Clothing Distributions

In first coming to this remote area, the lack of basic needs of life, that many take for granted, was very apparent.  Many children were unable to go to school because they didn't own any shoes.  So regular distributions occur to meet this very basic need to have adequate clothing.  The joy in receiving these clothing articles is very obvious, as seen in this photo.   

  

Mozambique

Food Distributions

We continue to have regular food distributions during a difficult time of famine.  No one else is coming to help these people of this remote region of the country in this time of increased hardship. Through these feedings, we are literally  saving  many  hundreds  of  lives.  The people have expressed profound gratitude for these acts of love demonstrated to them.

  

Kenya

Church Plant

In first arriving to this remote area of the country, the orphanage was facing many daily challenges to adequately care for the children and maintain operations.  But now, the orphanage is flourishing, and we were able to build this new house of the Lord.  The people are celebrating and praising God in their own church, and are no longer subject to weather conditions. 

  

Kenya

Corn Grinding Mill

Because of generous hearts, we were able to purchase this corn grinding machinery for the orphanage.  Due to high demand for corn grinding, this mill is frequently visited by the entire community, and has been a tremendous blessing in meeting our goal for the orphanage to be self-sustaining in its daily operations.  The whole area is amazed to see the developments. 

  

Central Asia

Sewing Center

Many of these once abused Christian women were living a life of social  isolation, despair, poverty, and with a bleak outlook for the future. In trying to help them, we purchased several sewing machines. Through sewing, they are now able to come together as a group, to care for one another, and to have a consistent means to financially support themselves. 

  

Central Asia

Bible Distributions

After we conducted several mass evangelistic outreaches, the follow-up and discipleship began shortly afterwards with the new believers. So we next did a large Bible distribution, and now the people are praising the Lord to have the Word of God for themselves, as they continue to be established, while growing in their faith walk with the Lord of the harvest.

  

Central Asia

Chicken Raising

We assisted a struggling South Asian pastor to start a chicken raising business to better support his family, as well as ministerial activities within his area of the country.  He is now able to minister in a greater capacity and reach more lives for Jesus Christ.  With such business ventures, many local pastors are better equipped to advance the Kingdom of God. 

  

Central Asia

Bible Distributions

We conducted more Bible distributions among struggling Christians working in brick kiln factories.  Due to debt they cannot afford to pay back, these people must work in an effort to repay the debt, but due to very meager wages earned, they are unable. This cycle unfortunately enslaves families for generations.  We are looking to see how we can liberate families.

  

Malawi

Food Distributions

NTCHEU: During a time of increased hardship and famine, we have determined to continue regular food distributions to assist our communities of ministry survive.  No one else is coming to their aid, and they are celebrating and praising the Lord for His goodness, and these acts of love.  Because of generous friends, we are literally saving many hundreds of lives.

  

Malawi

Food Distributions

LILONGWE:  This is yet another ministry location where there is great need and assistance required to help this community survive until the harvest season is regulated once again by  the rainy season.  Many are rejoicing and praising God for this great blessing. Many had no way to purchase food, but due to generous friends, many more hundreds of lives are being saved.  

  

Malawi

Food Distributions

CHAZDA:  This is still another ministry location that is suffering greatly from famine conditions. Cries for help cannot be ignored, and in following the Lord's leading, we continue to do regular food distributions here as well in this area.  I have heard many sad stories from this place as well, but now there are praises going forth giving glory to God for this great blessing.  

 

  

Malawi

Church Plant Expansion

LILONGWE:  After we conducted evangelistic crusades in this dark area of witchcraft, we planted the first evangelical church here.  And now, due to continued significant growth and church membership, we are engaged in a church expansion project to accommodate the much increased numbers of new believers and members  of  this  local  church  body. 

 

  

Malawi

Bible Distributions

CHAZDA:  After  we   conducted  a  series  of evangelistic outreaches in this dark area known for witchcraft activities, the follow-up and discipleship began with the hundreds of new believers.  A Bible distribution was needed, and many rejoiced to receive their first Bible and have the Word of God for themselves, as they grow in their new faith walk with the Lord.
