one heart, one mission

For many lives it is a constant struggle, even today. And our aim is to give their struggle HOPE.

The people of Santa Cecilia, Colombia have been blessed with the natural beauty of the view over the Mountains as their home for many generations.

Unfortunately, many families in Colombia have lost hope for a successful future. They only see the results of poverty, broken families, and loss of jobs. Hope is generated by building the coliseum and sharing God's word and our love with our family in Christ.

On the 2020 Mission Trip the Bakery room and Sewing room where tiled. During the Sunday service and evening services (Mon-Thur) the word was shared on Emotional Healing.

A successful 2022 mission trip to Colombia. Truely the Family of God. Thanks to two new travelers, Abraham from Gracepoint, Justin from Ignite. 

In 2023 we stepped into the newly donated greenhouse from Aguas de Bogota that felt like entering a realm of vibrant colors and life. We laid the foundation for the roof of the recreation center. The sounds of purposeful work and shared dreams echoed around us. HOPE, DREAMS and TRANSFORMATION.
