This ministry works with local pastors and leaders in the Himalayas to spread the gospel in Darjeeling India, Nepal and Bhutan. The few churches in the countryside of Bhutan are underground and open evangelism is illegal; therefore very little mission work is being done in this area.
Our primary focus is in the villages of the Himalayas where people mostly live off the land without any transportation or electricity. They have no church buildings and the education for the children is not good. The mission is to reach those that haven't been reached with the gospel and go where no missionaries have gone.
We work to fully support local pastors, church planting in remote villages and sponsor bible schools where young leaders can be trained prior to being sent out to the mission field.

Village of Hope Uganda
Compelled by a God-centered heart for orphans, Village of Hope (VOH) rescues the lives of former child soldiers, sex slaves and their younger siblings orphaned by war. VOH provides a safe haven for healing and hope for a future. This is accomplished by our feeding ministry in Gulu’s IDP camps providing food, education & counseling. Residential Villages of Hope provide physical needs, safety, medical services, a stable and loving home, life skills training, education in our schools, counseling, vocational training, Biblical discipleship and systemic solutions to epidemic poverty and hopelessness among Africa’s most vulnerable children. Our approach is designed to prepare and inspire VOH young men and women to become productive citizens, ethical leaders, and beacons for Christ within their communities and country.
Alade Genet - Ethiopia
Alade Genet is a care point in Awassa, Ethiopia. Our hope is to show the people of this community their worth in Jesus Christ, to help them discover their unique, God-given gifts and change their circumstances through relationship, child sponsorship and community development. We are excited to see the children of Alade Genet raise up a new generation who will change the world for Jesus!
Placke Family - Tanzania
In 2008 the Placke family of six moved to East Africa. Wanting to serve neglected and impoverished peoples and go where no one else would go, they settled in a faraway village in southeastern Tanzania. With Christ as their compassion source, they committed to walking side by side with the Ngindo tribe.
