Chiv & Emara In — Heart for Cambodia
After escaping the Khmer Rouge and emigrating to the United States, Chiv In never planned to return to Cambodia. However, the Lord had other plans, and He has led Chiv and Emara to be instrumental in the founding of seven churches in Cambodia.

Charles & Becky Jackson — Generous Hands Ministries, Inc.
The primary focus of Generous Hands Ministries, Inc is to lift up and proclaim the message of what God the Father has done through His son Christ Jesus. We do this through providing food, medicine and prayer for the hungry and those in need of medical assistance. In conjunction with these projects we teach, preach and disciple. We also look for ways that will enable these people to be self supporting (micro loan and economic development). Our vision is to be more involved with development than with relief but we realize that there are certain circumstances where relief is the necessary first response. Our goal in each of these fields is for the people to become self supportive. Currently, Generous Hands is involved in projects in the Philippines.
