MISSIONARIES and works WE SUPPORT

We believe in the importance of coming alongside missionaries and leaders in their own communities and supporting them as they work to serve and bring the gospel of Jesus to all nations. There are needs that can only be met by long-term, stable help, and by supporting our missionaries, we are able to assist in long-term spiritual growth and the development of healthy churches and communities.

Guatemala | Byron & Ingrid Huertas The church in La Union, Zacapa began on May 1, 2005, with three people at the initial worship. The attendance has increased considerably, but in this rural area where average family income is about $4 a day and most people must walk wherever they go, a centrally-located self-supporting church may not be a realistic goal. Church growth is ongoing, however as house churches have been established in a number of the 35 small villages in the surrounding area.
