We seek to become an organization that significantly effects the lives of children in Vietnam
- Caring and committed donors who generate sufficient and sustainable resources
- Responsible Vietnamese trained staff working with the children.
- Housing that meets required standards for safe and affordable living.
- Giving older children a chance to start school even if they have never attended school before, by not diminishing their feelings or self-worth.

In 1997 we made our first mission trip to the Middle East. We helped build a church that was a part of rehab center for drug addicts and alcoholics. The trip changed our lives. The joy of serving and helping others was beyond description. From there we moved on to other parts of the world. We visited areas devastated by hurricanes and earthquakes. During this time we built churches and schools plus delivered the message of HOPE to many people. Serving HIM in this capacity became our reason for being.
