Here is a list of ministries we support for their vision and focus. Please consider connecting with any that may interest you.
- Youth For Christ/Lincoln NE. Jacob Salmans is a young minister working with YFC in the inner city areas of Lincoln. The challenges are great and the needs are immense. You can donate to help support Jake’s ministry by clicking HERE, or click on the bold/underlined headline for this paragraph.
- Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This organization is very meaningful to me personally. When I was in 6th grade, my friends and I lost a classmate to Leukemia. Elita Yanez was a very special friend. We knew each other from the time we were tiny children when her family came to work on our farm. Her loss was the first death of a close friend I remember.
Then, many years later, my wife’s mother succumbed to Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at age 74. It was a tragic loss to our family.
I have researched the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and, so far as I can determine, they are careful and conscientious with the funds they receive. I believe they are very worthy of support. If you would like to join me by donating to their cause, click HERE.
- Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA.org). ADRA works in many nations around the world providing essential services which are unavailable to local populations. Their mission is “to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus.” In practical terms, among other things that translates to fresh water wells in areas where the only water supply might be miles away in a polluted river. Every fall ADRA issues a “catalog” of projects interested donors can choose from to support. For instance, I have “purchased” several goats listed in the ADRA catalog to donate to village families to give them a source of food and income. There are many other opportunities, as well. Through an international network, ADRA delivers relief and development assistance to individuals in more than 118 countries—regardless of their ethnicity, political affiliation, or religious association. By partnering with communities, organizations, and governments, ADRA is able to improve the quality of life of millions.
