The concept is simple: we give our money so others can be the voice of truth to those without access. The Human Right partners with Speed the Light to equip missionaries all over the world with essential transportation, creative communication, and compassionate demonstration.
Live Dead is a commitment to church planting among unreached peoples in community through teams.
A young Muslim woman needs to hear about Jesus. Her wealth provides her physical and material needs but her greatest need has not been met. Her eternal destiny hangs in the balance. She has no hope of salvation and she knows it—and nothing in her world can give her that. Islam has her bound from the truth of Jesus. She needs someone to tell her, to be the voice of truth, to share Jesus with her, to make Him known in her world.
Missions today does not restrict the unreached to the rural poor. While many Muslim unreached people groups do live in hard-to-reach and inhospitable places like Yemen and Libya, some of the most unreached Arabs live in wealthy, modern, urban centers like Doha, the capital of Qatar, one of the richest nations on earth. If we only see people who are poorer than us as needy, it is implied arrogance. What if the wealthy don’t need our water wells? The challenge of the wealthy, urban, unreached Muslims in the Arabian Gulf like this woman is often two-edged: Not only does Islam bind them, but they also need absolutely nothing practical from us. We are forced to preach the gospel in utter weakness.
Live Dead is a very intentional effort to preach the gospel of the Kingdom among every nation (Matthew 24:14). We believe the best way to do this is by working toward church-planting movements among every ethnolinguistic people. The premier challenge to the gospel in our age is Islam. The heart of Islam is the Arab world. The financial center (petro-dollars), the emotional center (Mecca), and the ideological center (Cairo) all are found in the Arab world. If we truly want to see the gospel preached in all the world among every people, we must make a concentrated effort to preach among Muslims. And the Muslim center is the Arab world.

Africa Oasis is using the water well to bring the gospel to those without access to either.
A boy misses his sister terribly after she passes away. Playing with the toys they made themselves isn’t the same. Loneliness follows him around. He fears he could be next. He looks around at the rocks and trees and asks, “Will I die next?” He looks at the sun blazing above and asks, “Will you ever send magic water to my family?” He offers a prayer to his grandmother: “Please send help.”
The water crisis in Africa is not new, and with growing populations it is only increasing in intensity. People are always looking for water, and for one-third of the population, they seek answers through shamans or witch doctors or through prayers to ancestors and objects in creation.
The Africa Oasis Project uses water to bring the gospel to people who have never had the opportunity to hear about Jesus. The project gives access to clean water, an essential for life, and access to Jesus—the basic human right.
There is more to this story than water wells. Africa Oasis drills many wells, but they are not always the solution to a community’s water needs. Adequate rainwater could meet the need if a collection and storage system are arranged. When water is available, filtering and storage systems are assembled and training in sanitation issues provided. Plus a network of over 45,000 local churches serve as access points to cities, towns, villages and rural area. The Church’s presence in these communities allows them to serve in these water intervention projects.
The Africa Oasis Project expresses the compassionate nature of Christ to hurting people, and with local people and partners, works to resolve the dilemma of clean, safe and available water in Africa.

Project Rescue provides physical, emotional and spiritual rescue and holistic restoration to women and children in sexual slavery.
Sometimes they are sold by their parents because bonded slavery seems like the only way to ensure their survival. Other times they are coerced into thinking they will find a better life and a good job. Fortunately, for an increasing number of enslaved women and girls, shelter and healing have been found through Project Rescue affiliate ministry sites.
Read the following story and consider what you can do to make a difference.
When I was 12 years old, a couple that I trusted promised me a job. They convinced me of a dream opportunity to work as a domestic helper along with the chance to pursue my studies. The idea of a secure job thrilled me, as it would any young girl in Nepal. Believing that I could trust this couple, I left my home in pursuit of a future.
After drugging me, the couple took me to a movie theater where a brothel owner met us. Two hundred dollars was the price that sold me into forced prostitution. For the next 18 years, I lived and worked in the red light district of Mumbai.
It was here in the red light district that I first heard the gospel from those involved with Bombay Teen Challenge (Mumbai Project Rescue affiliated site). My brothel owner and I had a life-changing experience by accepting Jesus into our lives. After this, I soon decided to return to my home in Nepal.
Ten ladies, including myself, now live at the Kathmandu, Nepal, aftercare home. God is continuing to work beautifully in each of our lives. I am currently attending literacy classes and sewing classes and hope to one day have a tailoring shop of my own.

Global University provides educational resources for an undergraduate degree in Bible and Theology via Kindle e-readers to pastors in restricted access countries.
Alejandro was a wanted man in Cuba. When the police finally caught him, he was sent to jail, where he was severely beaten and left hopeless. After his release, someone invited him to church. There Alejandro heard a message about the saving love of Jesus. Still wounded and frail, at the end of service he asked someone to pray for him. As the person prayed, Alejandro was filled with something he never thought possible—hope.
Alejandro accepted an invitation to church and it changed his life. If a man like Alejandro is to learn of Jesus, he will hear the story from a friend. In Cuba the average person hears an adequate presentation of the gospel through a relationship with a true believer. The church congregation surrounded Alejandro with love, and this man, once an abuser of drugs and people, was saved and discipled. Discipleship is key. Once someone like Alejandro hears and accepts the gospel, he must leave his old life, which often includes drug abuse and drug trafficking, gang banging, and the weight of pride. He needs someone to take him to the next step in his faith. He needs someone to disciple him.
Kindles for Cuba directly meets this need. Kindles for Cuba, India, and Latvia partner with Global University to sharpen and empower believers with much needed resources. To us in America, a Kindle is a great Christmas present. To someone in Cuba, India, and Latvia—where discipleship and textbooks are scarce and bringing Christian supplies is illegal—a Kindle is a most treasured possession.
To Alejandro a Kindle is his future.

Every Student, Every Campus. Making Jesus Known.
Caleb has it all figured out and is ready to face the world. All the things on his checklist—college, the girl, a good job—are within his reach. He can coast through life and probably fulfill his American dream. He could make it pretty far on his own.
But you believe there is something more. You believe there is a greater purpose to this life. You know there is a God who cares, who orchestrates life, who has a purpose for you and all your friends. Caleb needs to know that, too. He has never been told.
Youth Alive challenges young people like you to break the silence and be the voice of truth to your classmates through a simple concept—pray daily, live the Word, tell the story of Jesus, serve others, and give generously. Through prayer, student-led campus clubs, and social media young people are empowered to share the gospel in their schools and communities in any way that they can.
Get outside your normal circle of Christian friends and get to know the “Calebs” in your life. People like him don’t know you, and maybe they don’t trust you. Ask them questions and answer theirs. Be available; be present.
If there is a Christian community meeting on your campus—invite them. Never underestimate the significance of one conversation. Ask someone to come with you to your youth group. Take the 30-day My One Shirt challenge and be prepared to share the purpose behind the t-shirt. Your five-friend focus (creating a list of five friends to pray for and share the Gospel with this year) is significant. Be the most encouraging person in your school. Do the right thing in the right way regardless of how difficult the situation may be. Never underestimate how powerful a life lived for the glory of God is as found in 1 Timothy 4:12.
You are responsible to make Jesus known among your peers. Use your voice to tell the “Calebs” in your world about Him.

Convoy of Hope brings help and hope to those who are impoverished, hungry and hurting.
A grandmother, her daughter and her grandchildren are caught in a cycle of poverty and hopelessness. The grandmother sees no tangible way out so she repeats what she knows. Her dignity is gone; her sense of value, zero. She passes on those beliefs to her daughter and grandchildren. The cycle continues from generation to generation because no one has been willing to step in and be an advocate to break the cycle.
Often society looks at people like this grandmother and says, “She has obviously done something to get herself and her family into this situation. Why help them? They brought this upon themselves.” Yes, responsibility can play a role in the lives of our neighbors in poverty, but often the cards are simply stacked against them and the way out is difficult. That is why it takes Jesus to rescue them from their hopelessness. That is the only way this grandmother, her daughter and grandchildren will find rescue—through the hope of Christ.
Convoy of Hope gives advocates the opportunity to get involved in this grandmother’s family and families like hers throughout America. The journey starts at an outreach, but the outreach is not the end. Advocates make a difference in their communities for the long haul. These connections go beyond handouts—advocates step into their lives. Convoy of Hope provides resources for advocates to help them bring hope and to live out the gospel every single day.
As advocates, we must first seek a true understanding of God’s unconditional, graceful love and look at this grandmother and her family as God does—with eyes of love, not pity. We must see the poor, hurting and hopeless as more than just poor, hurting and hopeless. We must see them as Jesus sees them—loved, valued, redeemed. Jesus faced much criticism as He dined with sinners; He honored them with His presence. When we advocate for others, we honor and respect our neighbors and become an active presence in their lives. Convoy of Hope helps advocates bring dignity and hope into the lives of this grandmother and her family who feel like mistakes—not just by word, but also through action. In those moments, God makes us agents of transformation as He brings restoration in a split second through Jesus.

Hosanna Plan is the vision of the Russian Pentecostal church to reach the lost house to house, person by person, one on one.
Viktor is almost asleep for the night when someone knocks on his door. No one ever knocks on his door. He stumbles over and looks out. Three teenagers look back. In Russian, one of them says, “Hey, we’re just inviting the neighborhood to this concert thing we’re having.” Viktor takes the paper and reads, “Christian Fellowship,” and hands it back. The last time he stepped foot in a church was to pay his respects to a buddy who committed suicide after his wife left him.
This young Russian is just looking to get through life with no more pain than necessary. Depression runs in his family, which means suicide does, too. Viktor needs to encounter the changing love of Jesus, but all he knows about God is His absence. For Viktor to hear the gospel, he needs a group of believers that will make a long-term investment in him and all his addiction and pain. He needs people to help him see that life is not about surviving—it’s about thriving.
Hosanna Plan sees the opportunity to reach Viktor. Through partnership with the national church, Viktor will hear about a concert at a church plant in his community. With persistence from a neighbor, he will go to the concert. When Viktor walks in, missionaries can begin a simple conversation. Over time, through committed friendship, Viktor may trade in his drink for the hope found in Jesus. This local church with resources from Hosanna Plan, like concert equipment, can break the silence and reach Viktor and other Russians with the gospel.
