Featured Ministry Partners
AIM is working to rescue, heal, and empower survivors of trafficking to be free. Because this work doesn’t stop at the rescue. For these girls to truly heal and grow, they need to feel the unconditional, relentless love of Christ. When this love is shown, survivors understand their true worth and value, and then they are able to become abolitionists themselves, raising their voices and fighting for the freedom of other girls. In addition to this, our protection programs are targeting the root of the issue by addressing the demand for purchased sex and protecting the vulnerable in the community. AIM’s Mission is to free hearts, lives, and communities from the evil of sex trafficking in Jesus’ name and in Jesus’ way. The agape love of Jesus Christ is expressed through His followers (the Church), unlocking hearts one life at a time. Community by community, generation after generation, joining God’s global movement to rescue, heal, and transform those impacted by sex trafficking.
CharisMed (Charis Associates Medical Ministries) is a ministry of Charis Associates which advances the Gospel in foreign countries in partnership with local churches. CharisMed mobilizes foreign medical personnel who provide free medical care to patients who are then evangelized by church members. Since 2006 we have done 38 series of clinics over 322 days and have seen 44,564 patients, of whom 16,995 have made decisions for Jesus. We have worked in six nations, including Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Philippines, and Kenya. Previously,
most of our clinics were held in Thailand but we now have a worldwide vision for ministry.
CharisMed has helped plant churches and helped small churches grow larger. We are also a mobilizing ministry because we show medical personnel how they can use their skills to help advance the Kingdom of God in foreign countries. We work with foreign missionary organizations and prior teams have included medical personnel from USA, Australia, UK, New Zealand, Malaysia, Ukraine, Argentina, and other nations. During the coming year we are planning trips to Thailand, Philippines, Albania, and Kenya. We are also now working with Manna members who wish to establish a similar ministry focusing on reaching Latin America.

Filter of Hope
Families living in poverty deserve access to clean drinking water. Motivated by the compassion of Christ, Filter of Hope brings clean water to people who are thirsty. By manufacturing and distributing simple, life-saving water filters, we provide families living in poverty easy access to clean, safe drinking water—250 gallons a day for 10 years. The entire water filter kit fits inside a quart-sized bag and costs just $40 to purchase. For a $50 donation, we’ll deliver a water filter to a family in need and install it on your behalf. For most families, receiving our water filter means they have clean water in their homes for the first time ever. In 2012, we distributed the first Filter of Hope water filters in the Dominican Republic. Since then, we’ve expanded to 11 additional countries in the Caribbean and Central America, and our partner organizations have taken our water filters to more than 70 countries worldwide.

Return to Zion
Return to Zion was established in 2001 by the inspiration from God’s prophetic Word to bring the Jewish people back to Israel and to proclaim the name of Yeshua among the people of Israel.

Another vision of Return to Zion is to “Restore faith in Yeshua in Israel in our days.” We do this through humanitarian and educational outreaches such as Oasis Media (a Russian language media ministry), Rainbow of Sounds Music School, a food distribution program, Haifa Theological Institute, and a ministry to Holocaust survivors.
