Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To continue and improve the spiritual and physical well-being of as many people as the Lord sees fit in as many foreign countries as He identifies.

Increase donor participation through timely newsletters, personal communication, receipt messages and direct contact by missionaries and directors in the supported countries. In addition, increase missionary participation and volunteer opportunities in the supported countries through church communication and affiliation.

Long-term, in-country native and missionary presence including ordained missionaries, doctors and administrative staff able to work day-to-day with children in foreign countries speaking foreign languages. Well-established contribution network including automatic contributions, electronic banking and record tracking and dispersement of funds to the foreign countries.

The ministry in Tijuana, MX has increased the number of children in their home as well as the ability to reach out to children in the depressed Centro District with food and fellowship, encouraging the children to participate in the evangelistic outreach.

Missionaries to China have been able to establish a strong youth group there and continue to minister to and encourage many in mainland China despite the repression of Christian teachings.

Homes in Costa Rica and Guatemala continue to grow and have seen increases in the number of missionary teams traveling to these countries to gain knowledge of the ministries there and help build infrastructure at the homes.
