Our vision is to work in unity with local, indigenous, governing and religious communities.
In April, we moved to Papua New Guinea to minister to people living in extreme poverty and struggling with HIV, AIDS, and TB.
Papua New Guinea is an island country, approximately the size of California. It is home to 7.6 million people, who speak more than 800 different languages.
We will partner with local, indigenous led churches and ministries to:
- Get children off of the streets and into safe homes and facilities, where they will be enrolled in school. Most of the children are orphaned due to HIV, and have been abused by their parents/guardians.
– According to the World Health Organization, 150 million girls and 73 million boys under 18 years have experienced sexual violence and exploitation.
– An estimated 1.2 million children are trafficked every year.
- Offer homeless women suffering from HIV and TB a safe place to live while they learn to manage their illness successfully and learn life skills and job skills in order to sustain themselves and their children.
– 70% of women in Papua New Guinea will be raped in their lifetime.
– These women (who contract HIV and TB) are shunned by their families, rejected by society and left to depend on the streets for survival.
- Give hope and love to those living in hopeless situations; give them an opportunity to hear the Gospel and to be spiritually nourished.
In Luke 15:1-7, Yeshua (Jesus) leads by example. He spent time with the outcasts of society and made it clear that He came to save sinners! As we follow in His footsteps, we want to give these women and children HOPE and teach them about their Savior, who came to lay His life down for them.

“Pure and undefiled religion before our God and Father is this:
to care for orphans and widows in their distress,
and to keep oneself unstained by the world.”
“Learn to do good,
seek justice, relieve the oppressed,
defend the orphan,
plead for the widow.”
