THE WELLS OF JOY
Geoffrey Mutunga
Kenya

Pastor Geoffrey has a big heart and great faith. Through the Brilliant Sharpening Community Centre and the church, his mission is to reach each life, one life at a time without hesitation.

The Wells of Joy aims at developing the slum children helping them realize life can be different from what they see. The Wells of Joy has a holistic approach to ministry with spiritual and humanitarian assistance as the love of Christ is shared through ministry and education.

Life in the slum is a daily experience of poverty and has a degrading and dehumanizing impact on human life. People are prisoners of their circumstances with daily living characterized by immorality, prostitution, crime, drugs and substance abuse, careless living and alcohol. Many parents struggle to provide for their families and shelter them from the negative influence of the environment. Pastor Geoffrey and the ministry team of Wells of Joy are prayerfully working to provide a safe environment for true life-change to occur.

ROCK FOUNDATION

Brett Medlin

Brett Medlin started Rock Foundation Cambodia in 2011 to meet the mental, physical, and spiritual needs of the local Khmer people through relationships developed through poverty assistance and community outreach.

Rock Foundation focuses on drilling freshwater wells and importing containers full of medical supplies and hospital equipment in order to improve health and overall quality of life. For the past few years, we have made a strong response to help those suffering economically because of Covid. We have done several massive food distribution outreaches for extremely poor rural villagers in 4 different provinces. We have developed relationships, discipled, and baptized 25 Khmer people. In a country that is less than 1% Christian, these relationships are crucial to sharing the Gospel. Please pray God will continue to open doors for new relationships. The number of water wells drilled to date is #367. That supplies clean water to around 200,000 precious Khmer people. Most of these families have no electricity and no clean or running water prior to Rock Foundation’s intervention. Over the past several years we have imported 19medical containers worth over $6MUSD. Also, with our Covid response in 2021alone, Rock Foundation has supplied 75,000+ lbs. of rice, 38,000+ packs of noodles, 1800 bottles of soy sauce and fish sauce, and 10,500 cans of fish to 1900+ families.

Rock Foundation believes in sustainable development and aims to create long term solutions for extremely poor Cambodian families. We don’t just want to give out resources, but want to invest time in teaching, training, and equipping those who need some help, and are willing to help themselves.

How can you Go Beyond?

Pray for continued impact in the lives of the Khmer people and that they may come to know Jesus as Lord and Savior. Remember Brett and his team daily by in prayer.
Go serve alongside Brett in Cambodia.
Give your financial resources to help fund much-needed water wells, rice, and medical supplies. Give an encouraging word through email.

CIFI & THE ENGLISH CHURCH
Bill & Peggy Pearson

In September 2007, Pastor Luis Alberto Reyes asked Bill to be the pastor of the new church. The church was to meet on the second floor. After several months and remodeling of the second floor, on March 15, 2008, The English Church was inaugurated.

WORLD LINK MINISTRIES
Manny Fernandez
Cuba, Holguin

In 1985, Dr. Manny Fernandez and his wife, Glenda, moved to Spain to plant a church. It wasn’t long before he realized it was going to take more than focusing on one church at a time to truly multiply the number of people reached with the Gospel. It was then that God began to lead him to train others who would aid in the work of planting churches.

In 1991, World Link Ministries was founded and has become an evangelistic force training and deploying Christian leaders who are planting churches and saturating their regions with the Gospel.

In the last 26 years of faithful pastoral training, evangelism and church planting, through the efforts of the WLM team, the global church has experienced unprecedented growth.

CENTRO CRISTIANO DE GUAYAQUIL
Jerry & Janice Smith 
Guayaquil

In 1979, Jerry and Janice Smith were appointed as foreign missionaries of the United States Assembly of God to Latin America. In May of 1980, the Smith Family arrived in El Salvador. Despite civil unrest and danger, they felt God’s blessing on their lives.

When their 4 year term of service ended in 1984, they were anxious for God to guide them to another place where they could be of greater service to the Lord. Jerry said, “If God called me to spread measles, I’d get the best case I could, and then I’d go where they didn’t have measles”.

The Smiths started looking at the map of South America and felt God nudging them to Ecuador, specifically Guayaquil. Before moving to Ecuador, Jerry received his Masters degree in Biblical Literature from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary and in August of 1985, the Smiths moved to Guayaquil. At that time they took charge of a small church in a house located in Urdesa with around 50 people.

Pastor John Jerry Smith presents a positive and Bible-based message each week. He has a passion for children and most of the Church’s projects are focused on benefiting all those with limited resources, being provided with a quality education that will provide them with the necessary tools to become productive citizens and leaders in all areas of life.

The Christian Center of Guayaquil is currently the largest evangelical church in the city with a capacity for approximately 3,500 people and additional space for Christian education and ministries for children.

REHOBOTH MINISTRIES
Sastry Meesala

Pastor Kantharao Meesala is the founder and president of Rehoboth Ministries India a ministry focused on church planting, pastoral training, sewing school, orphanage ministry, and Jesus film ministry. Pastor Kantharao is the first-generation Christian saved from a Hindu religious background.

In India, there are many villages that have never heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ. RMI’s passion is to reach out to these remote villages and towns with the message of love and hope. RMI missionaries have planted several churches and many fellowship groups. Their aim is to plant churches in the most unreached areas by sending native missionaries.

The vision of the Tailoring Center is to equip ladies with tailoring skills for six months providing free teaching, financial aid and free sewing machines. As a result of this school, the women’s confidence will increase, as most are rescued from slavery and land lords and broker families.

India has 287 million illiterate adults. RMI takes the Gospel to these illiterate men and women though the Jesus Film. Right now, RMI has 23,000 converts ready for discipleship as a result of Jesus Film outreach.

In India, orphaned and abandoned children are facing unbelievable abuse and exploitation. A large percentage of these children end up living a life of crime, prostitution and addiction. Right now, 25 children are living at the orphanage. Before coming to us, most of them had never been to school, hardly had a meal a day, and had never had an opportunity to hear the Gospel. RMI provides them free housing, food, clothing, medication, and education at the public school, as well daily Bible teaching and prayer. They now have hope in Jesus Christ.

How can you Go Beyond?

  • Pray  for increased reach and gosepel impact in the lives of of every man, woman and child. Remember them daily by downloading their prayer card.
  • Go  on a short-term mission trip and help train native missionaries, work with orphan children, college students, and women and do evangelism.
  • Give  $50 for gas, power generator and film equipment for a showing of the Jesus Film. Give $150 and help a student to get training for a future. Send an encouraging word through email.
