Jeffery and Akiko Sonnenberg
Jeffery and Akiko help churches in Japan reproduce themselves. This involves helping churches articulate their vision to start a new church and then develop and support the leaders who are sent out. They work with a network of 6 churches. Each is working to start its own daughter church.
Noah’s Ark – Linda Veldhuizen
Over the past 30 years Noah's Ark has established a temporary home for children in the Philippines to house orphaned, abandoned, malnourished, and educationally-disadvantaged children. It also helps children with special needs such as cerebral palsy. There are 16 special needs children residing in the Home and receiving education in our newly opened Special Needs Center.
Presently, there are 43 children under its care. Noah's Ark supports another 8 students in college. Also, it provides educational scholarships and other assistance to 220 students through ChildCARE Plus sponsorship program. A Daycare is also run for the children in the Home as well in the community. Recently, they started a Ministry Essentials Training Program to give Bible training to local Pastors and Church Workers.
“Working for Orphans and Widows” (WOW) is a 20yr old ministry that focuses on Home Based Care for dying orphans and widows in Africa and India. Founded by Pastor Jim and Kathy Cantelon, it has proven to be effective in bringing both justice and righteousness to the humble homes of “the least of these” in Jesus’ name by working exclusively with and through local indigenous churches. Literally thousands of precious lives have been impacted for good and for God.
