Ministries Making a Difference
Home repairs, trauma care, Bibles, and a community park
As part of Christian Appalachian Project’s annual Workfest, students from Mount St. Joseph University in Cincinnati, Ohio, spent their spring break in Eastern Kentucky doing home repairs for children, their families, and senior citizens in the community. CAP has five stars and a “C” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 73.
Advancing Native Missions (ANM) recently sent 1,500 Bibles to Christians in Indonesia who don’t have them, and Native Indonesian missionaries carried some of them up a hill to share with a remote village. ANM has three stars and an “A” transparency grade in the MinistryWatch database, and a donor confidence score of 96.
In February, Praise Assembly in Springfield, Missouri, broke ground on Northeast Community Park. The project is slated for a 2027 finish date, and will cost about $1.5 million, which the church plans to complete without taking on debt. Located on 40 acres owned by the Assemblies of God-affiliated church, the park will be open to the community and feature playgrounds, sports courts and fields, walking trails, and a pavilion.
Triumphant Mercy Lebanon, a local Christian ministry based out of Beirut, is in the midst of producing a podcast for Lebanese people—especially younger generations—focused on trauma and healing. In 2022, Lebanon ranked as the angriest country in the world, and it continues to grapple with economic and social upheaval.
The women’s ministry of the Jesús la Esperanza San Diego Church of the Nazarene in Venezuela hosted a first aid workshop for members of the community. Twelve people received a certificate for participating in the first class, which covered vital signs, emergency kits, and care techniques for frequent injuries. The outreach provides practical information with the goal of reaching people with the Word of God.
