We exist as a multigenerational mission whose lives are devoted to reaching those in need with the love of Christ. Our work spans 4 generations with a 125 year presence throughout SE Asia and has covered bible translation and literacy work, community development and sustainability, church planting and leadership training, orphans and the rescue of child soldiers from rebel armies. Our heart is to develop the leaders of tomorrow by equipping children at high risk with skills and a moral backbone so they can be children who grow in influence like Daniel and Esther to walk in their God given destiny and to impact their own people for good. In short: we are nurturing nation changers.
Our mandate has been to go to the dark and hard places and open up a space for others. We are trailblazers in the modern mission movement. We believe that justice is a highlighted facet of God's character in the world right now and there is a generation that wants to see God's kingdom in action, and if they do, they will give everything to join the ranks.
As we see many hard things in our world today, earthquakes, tsunamis, super typhoons and nations destabilizing into sects and tribal wars, we believe that there is a kingdom whose rule is of peace and whose justice is motivated by the extreme value of human life. We are here to do our small but important part to demonstrate that amazing kingdom, often called the good news. Our cry is for His Kingdom, His Kingdom to come.
Some of our keynote work has been with child soldiers and children in armed conflict. Our purpose is to call forth their true identity in Christ, not to condemn those who do wrong to these children but to show them their amazing purpose in justice and goodness. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him, John 3:17.
