Sharing the Gospel through providing housing.

For several years we have been working together with local partners in Malaysia to build basic housing for those who are in need.  Many needs have been met through these buildings, but even more important has been the “building” of relationships and seeing the door open for sharing the gospel.  Each year, we are seeing around 60 people pray to receive Christ, and new local bodies of believers beginning.  Most of these people have never heard the gospel, and might have never had the opportunity, apart from the Longhouses being built.  Please register using the link above. 

Cost:  $1500
