Note  of  Thanks:
“The cost of sending our children to school is on the rise. Much more I have no regular job to meet the need of my two children – Daniel and Faith. By God to see us – His children, is to provide for us. God’s sees us with the need for educational scholarship of my children and with his love prepare to supply it. He gifted my two children with mental capacities way above the average. God remembered that and provided their need and manifested Himself through Life Aid Foundation. I always told my wife that it is my belief that God gave us two wonderful children not to see them wasted but rather see the power of God work in them. I firmly hold on to the truth that the confident speech of a believer accepts the promises of God, declaring it will eventually see the Holy interference of His provision. I know and am sure that God will come to their aid and it literally came to pass through Life Aid foundation. Life Aid Foundation is our memorial of the faithfulness of God. Like Abraham, the action of Life Aid Foundation in responding to the desire of God to provide for us, shall be counted for them as righteousness. Life Aid Foundation in granting the Educational scholarship for our children said nothing about themselves, but urge us to continually praise God for His provision. God’s provision came in time of our extremity. The moment of danger is the place, where we saw God’s surpassing kindness and grace. To God be the glory.”R. Buscato, Philippines

Church  Planting

Your donation of any amount will help establish churches in some of the most remote areas of the world.  Many of our indigenous ministers are planting new churches in their respective areas of the world. This increases the incurred costs.  What a joy and blessing to give sacrificially in order to lift an individual out of poverty, or supply an underprivileged child with an education, ot provide food, clothing, and shelter to someone that lost everything due to a natural disaster.  This type of selfless giving puts Matthew 25:34-40 into action. In addition,  it is  commendable to expend our resources to further God’s Kingdom by helping pastors and evangelists continue their mission work; aiding in the construction of a church; or sending an indigenous missionary to minister to a remote isolated village.  Enabling a pastor or Christian worker oversees to disciple, teach, train, and send out to further the process of making disciples of the world fulfills the job Jesus gave all believers in Matthew 28:18-20.  We, as believers, are all called to fulfill Jesus’ mandate.  NOTE:  Many more churches are being planted and leaders trained in other countries, although we’ve only pictured some here, so as not to endanger our indigenous workers in restricted areas.

Philippines

Mambatagan Feeding Project

In May, 2010, Bro. Rupert Buscato in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines, became burdened with a vision to reach out to the very poor children in the Mambatagan region. Since resources were limited, he shared his vision with us and others and the Mambatagan Feeding Project was born. By providing one simple meal of rice with chicken and vegetables, cooked outside by the parents of the children being helped, along with a few basic school supplies for the youngest children one meal a month, the project has grown into several small house churches.  From this humble beginning and consistency in sharing God’s love and His Word, most of the parents of those children have accepted Jesus as their Savior and their family has been given a Bible.  Rupert started having weekly Bible studies in addition to bringing the meal and food supplements God has provided miraculously each month.  Now, in spite of the flooding, lack of work, and other difficulties, the Mambatagan people have a hope for the future and that hope is in Jesus Christ.  They are reaching out to help their neighbors.  God is bringing the harvest of new believers.  Rupert’s plan is to use this same technique to reach out to another very poor people group in the CDO area.

Kenya Center for House Church Network

Kenya Center for House Church Network is focused for the cause of world evangelism; seeking to plant bible believing home churches (NOT cell churches) in neighborhoods where none exist, especially in the remote parts of East Africa. The objective is to make sure that the home churches are culturally relevant and have a vision to reach their own communities and beyond, i.e. self supporting and self propagating home churches. The house churches are not necessarily affiliated with Kenya Center for House Church Network.

Fundamental Baptist Church in Nyamarambe Kisii County

“The Fundamental Baptist Church really only has one purpose. That is the same purpose that Jesus had, as is described in 1 John 3:8, “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” We believe that we can best accomplish that by helping to fulfill The Great Commission, so we try to show and teach the Love and Hope of Jesus to everyone we encounter. Our desire is to help share the Gospel with the whole world, but we are primarily focused on work in East Africa. We believe we have been specifically prepared and called to Minister God’s Grace to the people here in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi. We will be faithful and true to God’s charge.

Operation Gospel Outreach, otherwise known as Operation GO, is a regional Saturation Evangelism and Church Planting initiative. Our goal is to help systematically take the Gospel to every man, woman and child throughout East Africa. This is a relatively new work, but already Hundreds of souls have been led to Jesus and ministered to. Our goal is to help see this entire area reached with the Gospel, and for all new Believers to be welcomed into new or existing Faith-based, Bible-believing local churches for fellowship and discipling.

As larger hub churches grow throughout the region, their facilities will also serve as much needed Orphanages and affordable Christian schools for those in need. There are literally hundreds of thousands of Orphans in this area that need help. In addition, there is a tremendous need for an affordable alternative to expensive government run schools and private schools for the Orphans and other impoverished children. So, where appropriate facilities are available, they will also be used to house new H.O.P.E. Christian Academy primary and secondary schools. H.O.P.E. = Helping Our People Excel. For complete background information on our orphans, please click here.

Operation GO is designed to provide pastoral training; systematic door-to-door, village-by-village evangelism; church planting and discipleship; and associated humanitarian aid (such as food, electricity and clean water initiatives in addition to Orphanages and schools), all of which are needed to help reach the people of East Africa for Christ and to help minister to their needs. This is a HUGE undertaking.

As God provides, and in His timing, we anticipate that Operation GO will continue to expand. It is a difficult undertaking just trying to ensure that all 140,000,000+ people currently living in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi hear the Gospel. However, the whole African continent needs Jesus. That is why we need your support. As you and others partner with us in, God uses each of you to help make all these things possible. So, if you have not done so already, please join with us, and get involved today”!

Myanmar

Tin Aung believes that there cannot be Church planting without evangelism, and there cannot be leadership without discipleship. His diligent hard work engaging in comprehensive evangelistic, discipleship training, and evangelistic youth camp programs, has brought much fruit in his country of Myanmar. He also believes that there is no other way to accomplish the great Commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ in Matt. 28:19-20 without Church planting. Tin Aung has planted many churches with co-workers in various areas, expending the work of evangelism and indigenous discipleship through his church planting ministry. The newly planted churches have become the centers for learning and disciple making. Tin Aung works with mission minded existing church leaders and establishes a church where there is no Church.

The need of workers is huge and urgent. This is the prayer request that Jesus had left for us to pray and do (Matt. 9:37-38).  Tin Aung is also engaged in pastoral training; his main goals in pastoral training are to produce church planters, Bible teachers, and preachers to serve in new and existing local churches. There are now eight bi-vocational church planters sent by his church in order to establish new churches.

All in all, Tin Aung is a pastor-trainer who trains others to produce young generation leaders.

Remote Village Teachers Project

 

In November 2011 we set out to establish remote village teachers project. The Lord has truly blessed these projects. We receive monthly reports of the teacher’s progress and the wonderful impact it is having on the entire villages. Since the start of this wonderful ministry, not only have the teachers been instrumental in transforming the young lives for Christ, but also their parents, other family members, and even entire communities. To date, there has been over four hundred that has received Jesus as their Lord and Savior; twenty-six new churches planted; six home churches; and dozens of church leaders trained for the ministry–all this in the past four years. God is truly doing an awesome work.

Some of these locations are in highly restrictive areas. (Due to the sensitivity of these specific reports and pictures, we cannot post them online. Those who are supporting a specific project receive updates and pictures on the project they support). The children are excelling in their studies–which include academics and Bible courses–and are learning how to draw closer to Jesus more and more. The adults are being taught the Gospel message as well, and many are coming to know the Lord Jesus and giving their hearts to Him. We praise God for this incredible ministry. If you are interested in sponsoring a teacher for a remote village–we have many to which need assistance– please see our “donations” page.

We are exceedingly grateful to God and our contributors. Words cannot adequately express how appreciative we truly are for making it possible to get these gifts of love into the hands of those in need through the hands and feet of the indigenous ministers God has given us to work with– His laborers in His harvest field. We are so blessed and honored to be used by our Father in this way. We could never do what has been done this year, or in previous years without our most generous and loving supporters, acting on what God put on your heart. We believe God will continue to bless and use us as we strive daily to be careful stewards of all He provides.
