A Generation’s movement has started

Updated: Jul 25

A couple of years ago a friend of mine reminded me about promises that we give, and how important it is to keep up in the pursuit of accomplishing them. I really appreciated that he reminded me of those dreams I used to mention to him when we were still living in Athens, GA came to life after consistently persisting in them even when circumstances were not showing any progress.

Today I really am excited to share 5 major impacts that you are making in this world through your commitment and donations to World Nations International:


1) Fighting global hunger


We established a mission based on values that we believe to be very important in the realm of needs among vulnerable peoples in the world.

Every time you invest in one of our projects, you are actively fighting hunger through our programs in sustainable agriculture.

We believe that locals in the countries that we serve should be equipped to do the work so they can support their own families. We provide seminars, special workshops, professional volunteers, consulting and field trips to add knowledge and experience about producing healthy crops and healthy animal production.

Every time you invest in one of our projects, you are actively fighting hunger through our programs in sustainable agriculture.

2) Alleviating poverty through providing education


Our goal is to promote sustainability at different levels of our projects, from leadership succession to food production and a skilled workforce trained and ready to create wealth and alleviate poverty.

This spring we had a record breaking harvest of cucumbers at our Mission Training Center in Indonesia. The students were amazed with the fact that applying techniques that they have been learning in the classroom about soil cultivation, crops and gardening care will produce results worthy of their time and attention. It is very rewarding to see how it has affected their efforts in our sustainable agriculture program.

The domino effect of this is that technical knowledge is being transferred and empowerment of locals is happening.

3) Developing communities through special projects


Community development is one of the key strategies for opening doors among collectivist cultures. That is the reality in a majority of the countries where people groups were still not reached by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The organizational structure of those societies are based upon the common good of the group.

We desire to show that our God can answer their prayers and bring care, hope and love.

That being said, the strategy that we use to advance frontiers and break barriers among those groups begins with community development projects. We have donated water for families during the water crisis, we have donated hygiene kits, baby clothes and tons of rice for families that lost everything in the earthquake and tsunami. Our doctors have seen and medicated over 500 people in 4 villages without healthcare access. We desire to show that our God can answer their prayers and bring care, hope and love.


4) Creating strategic platforms to provide access to the Gospel


Since we are working to reach those who have never heard about Jesus, or some people groups that have less than 2% of Christian believers, and the few Christians among them are persecuted, we need to seek from God the best strategy to share the Gospel.

Is not enough to have good ideas, we need to have God’s ideas. Some strategies that apply for one people group will not work for a different people group. This strategic platform might be a hospital for a community which does not have healthcare access, or might be a school where there are lack of schools, or might be sustainable agriculture techniques taught to the farmers, so they will reap the best harvest, providing for their family with no harm to the environment.

Creating these strategic platforms, always gives us the opportunity that we are looking for to share the Gospel.

5) Raising awareness about Unreached people groups, closed and persecuted Christians in vulnerable communities


More than 42% of the whole World has never heard about Jesus! Living in the western part of the World, where churches are everywhere and access to Christian material, books, podcasts, worship songs, preachings, etc are easily available, it is hard to believe that there are people who have never heard about the Gospel

More than 42% of the whole World has never heard about Jesus

We need to know who these unreached people groups are, and where they live. We need to learn how to pray for them. There are people of God working among a few of these groups right now! We need to pray for these missionaries, we need to support their work, and we need to pray that God will send more workers.


Thank you for your faithful support.
