In 2008 I was sitting in a small prop plane looking out over the majestic snow capped mountains of Nepal. I had just left our children’s home in Bhaktapur, Nepal. Since 2006 the Lord had been dealing with me to start a compassion arm of our ministry. It began at the Bhakatpur Children’s Home where we had been supporting fourteen children. I wept at the realization that these children have a future and a hope. How many more could have that same hope?
To that point, our ministry focused on church planting but Rick and I heard the call to serve the poor. My dream is to help meet the practical and physical needs of those who cannot help themselves. We formed CompassionAsia as a funding organization that works with our church-planting partners to develop a ministry of compassion. ChurchAsia has been laying the foundation through local church planting, but through CompassionAsia, we can strengthen the church by finding a need and filling that need. These two ministries work hand in hand.
My desire is to develop humanitarian outreach in the areas where we are planting churches. My heart is to help the young ones who are the future of these developing countries, and equip our pastors and leaders to provide for their families.
