Acts (AMPC) says that Jesus We follow His example by doing outreaches all over the globe, and God has done so many phenomenal things through them.
We’ve encountered so many people who don’t even know what it means to have a dream for their future…they have no idea what hope is.
I love being able to help people by teaching the Word, but it’s also great when we can show God’s love by doing things like washing a child’s feet, putting shoes on them and telling them, “Jesus loves you and He’s going to take care of you.” You never know how something like that may impact a child.
We started in small, very simple ways, and as we did what we knew to do, over time our outreaches have increased in amazing ways.
Today, we are able to invest millions of dollars into humanitarian works that also share the Gospel.

What God has done there is a beautiful illustration of this. He has led us to them, and as we began to meet their physical needs, their hearts were opened to the Gospel.
