We work with the poor. Our mission field is drug-addicted street kids, homeless families, and people who live at the city dump. We bring hope to the rejected, the lonely, and the unloved. We feed the poor, rent homes to take families off the street and work with employers to find them jobs. But we don’t stop there. Mother Theresa often said the greatest poverty is being unloved. We want to inspire all generations to radically love and bring hope to the hopeless.
Book A Speaker
Our missionaries share stories and songs inspired by the poor through speaking at churches, conferences, and retreats. We go into schools, universities, and even living rooms to inspire everyone to encounter Christ and to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Book A Mission Trip
Each year we bring hundreds of people into the mission field to encounter the poor. The poor bring us closer to God as they experience the love of Christ in us. Our missionaries teach others to see the poor as a gift and how to value them as our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Shadows and Cold
