Dominican Republic: Bringing Food and Salvation

Earlier this year, we sent 648,000 dried vegetable soup meals to our partners Tim and Trena Johnson in the Dominican Republic. They have distributed the meals to families, schools and rehab centers in poor communities and villages in the Dominican Republic.

They have prayed with more than 1,000 people to receive Christ as their Lord and Savior during these food outreaches.

From that point, two hand-excavated (with picks and shovels) and maintained roads climb to the upper valley. We are grateful for this new partnership as we are able to reach people who are living in a desperate … read more>>

Warehouse Update: A Ribbon-Cutting to Celebrate

We have had a vision to build a warehouse of our own at our ministry headquarters in South Bend. And that vision has become a reality. The Lord placed on our hearts the need for this facility so that we could respond quickly and efficiently to people around the world and in our own nation during times of disaster and great need. Many have partnered with us to make this vision a reality. On Saturday, June 25, we celebrated the warehouse with a dedication ceremony and ribbon cutting.
