Making disciples, training future missionaries, caring for the poor.
We are preparing Filipinos for the harvest field, because they can get into several nations where Westerners usually cannot. (More than a million Filipinos are guest workers in Middle East nations. Missionaries can go disguised as guest workers.) And the Philippines is within the 10/40 Window as well as the Circle of Concentrated Population, so we are in close proximity to most of the world’s population and most of the unreached groups. The Philippines has the highest rate of English fluency in Asia, which can help open doors for missionaries to go as English teachers. Additionally, since there are nine unreached Muslim tribes on our island, we are training workers to reach these harvest fields.
Besides our focus on reaching the unreached, we help the poor with medical expenses, school expenses, clothes, and occasionally home furnishings such as a counter-top stove. Meeting physical needs often leads to opportunities to meet spiritual needs, as our Lord Jesus demonstrated. Many of the people in our church are desperately poor. Acts 7:1-6–as well as many other New Testament passages–commend caring for the poor while preaching the Gospel.
Our passion is to send laborers into the Lord’s harvest. We have already helped train many laborers, but so many more need our help to train, launch, and support them wherever the Lord sends them.

Our personal expenses are covered by my small early-retirement pension from the USPS, so we don’t spend any donations to the charity on ourselves (unless someone specifies it is for us, which has happened a few times).

Please pray to the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.
