We are watching as stories of suffering turn into stories of life.

Mothers who used to sell themselves at night for pocket change, are starting businesses and changing their community.

Young girls who were preyed upon by traffickers are seeing their worth, gaining confidence, and protecting themselves against exploitation.

Kids with disabilities who were on the fringes have access to case-managed care and a loving family of friends and staff at our community centers.

Young children who were wandering the streets during the day have a safe place to play and learn.

This Christmas, your church is invited to participate in a joyful exchange of life with our friends in East Java, Indonesia. Christmas Offerings at local churches continue to make this ministry a reality. Will you join us?

Meet our friends

This community is sacred ground. The families we serve reveal a piece of who Jesus is that is not found anywhere else. Many of these women and children have suffered abuse, exploitation, and trafficking. Most are disabled, orphaned, ill, or widowed, and all of their situations are informed by severe poverty. In their suffering and in the darkness, Jesus is moving powerfully and bringing hope, life, and joy.
