WE ARE A PARA-CHURCH MINISTRY. WE COME ALONGSIDE OF PASTORS + CHURCHES.

Many churches and pastors in Southeast Asia feel threatened when missionaries come because many ask them to join their denomination or organization. We make it clear that we're there simply to encourage and support them in whatever ways we can. This has strengthened and deepened our relationship with them and has allowed us to serve them since 1987.

Ephesians 4:12-13

Bangladesh Relief: North and South

 In northern Bangladesh there is the Home of Peace that normally houses and provides an education for approximately 500 orphan and at-risk children from around the country.  Because of the rapid shut down of busses and transportation for the Covid pandemic, 250 of these children were not able to make it home before the lockdown and…
