Located in Cairo, Egypt, Safaa and his wife Mona, serve as Director or CAS. This work started in 2003. The emphasis is to teach and train leaders who will in turn lead congregations in the ways of the Lord. Much of what they do is done in a hostile religious and government environment. Since starting in 2003, thousands of church leaders have been trained in New Testament principles. Under their teaching, over 180 churches are now practicing weekly observance of the Lord’s Supper. One entire denomination is dissolving and restoring as a New Testament pattern of worship and baptism. Since this mission has started, they have partnered with Hope International University (Fullerton, California) establishing 11 campus branches in Egypt and Sudan. Plans are currently underway to establish a branch campus in Lebanon. Many from surrounding Countries in Africa come to one of these campuses for training. In addition to training ministers, Safaa is deeply involved in translating Bible training aids for minister.

Kevin and Susan Fry
Founders and Directors of Eden Ministries Inc. and Eden Children’s Village
Kevin and Susan founded Eden Ministries as Goshen Christian Church African Ministries in 1998. Eden has grown and blossomed much faster into the large undertaking that they originally envisioned, but we’ve yet to realize all God had in His mind from the beginning! We took in our first child in 2000 and have had the honor of caring for 250 total up to this current time. If you’d like to read the whole story, please visit our much more detailed description HERE!
Kevin and Susan spend 8 months in Zimbabwe and 4 months traveling and raising funds for the orphanage each year. We are all delighted to join them in the calling and tremendous blessing of following God’s call to love Him through caring for orphans, widows and lost souls across the globe.

While the Food Pantry is funded with designated donations, I think it fits well in our booklet about missions, benevolence and outreach. We are truly blessed to have such a wonderful ministry at Christway that meets the needs of people in our community. Not only do we have the joy of providing food for our community, we have the wonderful opportunity talk and pray with them. The Food Pantry is for anyone in our church or community.
We want to be ready to help those in need. We have needs every year for those who are going through some difficult times and they need help. We often have requests for help with rent, food, and utilities. We believe in helping those we can with special gifts and gracious counseling. One of the marks of the Church is sharing to meet needs of the Believers. (Acts 2:43-45) We will set aside an amount each month to be ready to help in times of need.
Who We Are
iCare serves women and children who are victimized, exploited and trafficked by sexual exploitation as well as those who are at risk of being victimized. We step in to raise awareness in the community to educate and equip youth, organizations and churches. We serve through a three-pronged approach of prevention, intervention and restoration.
iCare’s mission is to glorify God by serving those who are being exploited and oppressed by means of commercial sexual exploitations.
To see a community, state, nation, and a world where children are valued and protected: celebrated for their God given talents and abilities and treasured as Priceless handiworks of their Maker.
Tim and Erin MacSaveny are serving with Pioneer Bible Translators. They are serving in Tanzania, Africa. One of the amazing things is to hear (read) the Word of God in your own language. Tim and Erin are both Graduates of Johnson University and have been serving with Pioneer Bible Translators since their graduation. They are working on the Gospels of John, Luke and the Book of Acts. They are translating these books into seven different languages spoken in Tanzania. Tim and Erin have four children.
Project Kenya is a mission work in Nyeri, Kenya. Tim and Teri Hudson lead in this work among the Kenyans. They minister with multiple programs. Project Kenya started with a “feeding program” to provide food for children and families. This has grown to multiple “feeding sites” in and around Nyeri. They have a child sponsor program by which you can sponsor a child for $25.00 per month. This program will help provide daily food and education for a child. Currently, Project Kenya is looking for property to provide a safe space for abused children. Project Kenya is assisting in the planting of new churches in Kenya. The latest area is in Kitale, near the Uganda border. They are providing resources for a Bible College to train Pastors. Project Kenya is very involved with CHE (Community Health Evangelism) training. CHE training helps Kenyans learn a trade to provide for themselves and their families.

David and Lynn Poling have been serving as Missionaries to China since 1979. They have set up a campus for training in Hong Kong. Their primary mission is the Chinese Christian Seminary in Hong Kong. From there, they have trained thousands of leaders, many of whom have come from the Mainland and have gone back to be house church leaders. So much of what is being done on the Mainland of China, must be done “under the radar” of the government. Many of their students have move to other countries to serve. Some are in Canada and some are serving in the Middle East. According to official Republic of China law, no children are to be in church until they are 18 years old.
They also work with a leper village and drug de-tox center.
David and Lynn have three adopted Chinese sons, Isaac, Nathan and Samuel.
Each year we normally have requests for help. It may be for weather related relief or for unforeseen tragedies. For example, in 2016, we responded to a minister and his family in Mexico involved in an automobile accident. We also responded through I.D.E.S. (International Disaster Emergency Services) to help families affected by Hurricane Matthew.
Normally we come to you for a “love” offering to help minister in such times. In addition to those requests, we also want to be ready to help those who might go on a short missionary journey. In 2016, we were blessed to help a young couple go to Haiti and serve for 10 days. By setting aside $200.00 each month, we will have funds to respond when such requests come. While this amount may not be sufficient for all requests, it will hopefully go a long way.

Emily graduated from Atlanta Christian College (Point University) and Travis from Milligan College. Both then graduated from Emmanuel Christian Seminary. They have two daughters, Clare and Charley.
