Our purpose as an organization is: To accelerate the work of proclaiming the Gospel to people groups around the world that have not had the opportunity to hear the Good News of Jesus Christ. We focus on serving and supporting mission organizations that are involved in church planting and Bible translation by providing equipment and work teams in the more remote places of the world where there is limited infrastructure.

An island community has been given land to relocate to the mainland. FRIENDS in Action is helping by teaching the villagers how to make clay blocks to build and providing the needed equipment. A local pastor and his wife live among the villagers and hold church services regularly and are involved in helping build the community.
We have been working with mission agencies inside Burkina Faso for several years. As a result of our work we have provided clean, fresh water for thousands of villagers. Each time a well is drilled there is a missionary on site to teach the Bible to the many curious villagers. Each well (including pump) only costs $8500. We currently have over 200 well requests from villages. Can you help us to provide the Water of Life?
FRIENDS in Action is building a much needed headquarters building with plenty of office space as well as a large warehouse building to refurbish equipment, pack shipping containers and store collected items being sent to various fields.
We are working with missionaries by providing Medical First-Aid kits. These kits are five-gallon buckets that are filled to the brim with supplies for basic first-aid and even minor emergencies. Sutures, gauze and even antibiotic ointment are difficult to find in third-world countries. Each medical bucket costs about $75.00 each to purchase and ship. Our goal is to provide 100 buckets per year.
Cutting through jungle in order to provide road access from remote villages into towns to sell the villagers' products, this road construction is also providing a way of travel for local pastors and evangelists into remote villages to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
