Our Vision of Communities
What Drives All We Do
The life, teaching, and love of Christ inspires how we live individually and serve collectively.
The participation of those we serve is essential to long-term sustainable change.
We seek to continually improve, using the best practices and technical expertise possible.
We intentionally offer robust training opportunities to raise up the next generation of leaders locally and globally.
We aim to apply our financial and human resources in ways that optimize maximum impact, while maintaining the highest standards of accountability.
We value the whole person. Through our efforts to provide clean water, we seek to address people’s physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs.
Communities are selected on the basis of their commitment to positive change, rather than solely because of need. These communities provide an important model of success to the neighboring area.
The community development process normally succeeds:
Not only do we focus on sustainable development, and clean water, we focus on the larger picture of health itself.
Wilfrido, a young father, told Tannia Lascano, the team’s health and hygiene instructor, that the people of Daldal initially expressed only limited interest in her health classes, but now they realize the importance of good hygiene.
"Bruce and Cherith have reflected the lifestyle of authentic cross-cultural missionaries by focusing on the priority and importance of establishing healthy relationships with national colleagues with whom they have served and worked with. They are credible role models to follow in their steps because they reflect the God they serve.”
