The Amazon Network

We are on a mission! We want to see the Lord provide financially for the work that is happening in the Amazon Network and we want to ask you to be a part of meeting that need. 

Here is our goal:

Raise $15,000 for the current needs and future dreams of the Network. 

What this money goes towards (and much more):

- Grace House Amazon, a home for abandoned, abused, neglected, and at-risk kids in the Amazon. We currently have 60 children that participate every weekday in our day program where we provide a safe, loving environment to play, study, and grow. We provide a hot meal for on average 20-25 kids each day. Additionally, there are four children that live at the home full-time under the care of Rosa, the Director of Grace House. Your giving will go to continue to provide meals, activities, educational resources, and Gospel teaching to these kids. 


Your giving helps us continue to provide meals for many children who wouldn't have regular meals otherwise. 


 
Grace House is a safe place to learn and play for children who are otherwise at risk of abuse and neglect.

- Grace House Amazon structural improvements
We have been told by the local authorities that we need to update several things within Grace House to meet the government standards, such as adding an additional bathroom.  We also still need to complete several projects within the home. Your giving will go to help us complete these projects, also employing local laborers for the work.

We need better storage!


This is the outside of Grace House. It's time to repaint! The harsh heat and heavy rains of the Amazon take a toll on the structures and they need frequent and constant repairs and maintenance. 


- Empowering locals to pursue their dreams and further their education
Several of our people are currently continuing their education and we help fund that! Whether it's educational resources, helping pay tuition, or transportation and lodging for their studies, we want to empower our brothers and sisters to pursue their God-given passions.  We also help locals start their own small business to provide for themselves and their families. Your giving will allow us to continue doing this AND do this for more local believers.

- Employeeing locals at a loving, safe, and fair-wage Gospel-based business. 
Our donut shop, The Donut Company, just finished its SECOND year! We currently employ four locals full-time and have two missionaries who work directly with the shop. We want to expand our influence in this region by employing more locals and bettering the current shop. Your giving will allow us to purchase the necessary equipment AND give us the boost we need to get to the place of employing more locals and investing in their lives and families. 

The local airport is currently being rebuilt with new shops and restaurants and one of our goals is to be in one of those spaces as well as have a donut cart that travels around this tourist town. 

As a Gospel-based business initiative, The Donut Company will use all profits to reinvest into the Amazon Network. So by investing in the shop, you are not only impacting the lives of our employees and the customers who come through our doors, but also helping REinvest in the network to share the Gospel with more people.

We need to expand our kitchen! We can then open for breakfast AND employ more locals in a fair-wage, loving environment.



- Establishing a non-profit in Colombia.
As the network expands, we have found it necessary to establish a legal non-profit in Colombia (we are already part of a non-profit on the US side). This will allow us to function more freely within the Amazon region as well as help us streamline giving and donations from the US to the Amazon. To do this, we need to file many documents and pay a lot of fees in country. Your giving will go to help us expand and Lord willing allow us to employ another Colombian national.

- Empower and Train Indigenous Leaders in the Uncontacted region
Your giving allows us to continue to invest in Indigenous Believers in the Amazon region. Future tribal leaders are being trained right now by their own people to go and teach Truth and Hope to their own people. We partner with two Indigenous families who are working tirelessly and faithfully among their people to see lives transformed.

This will also allow us to complete construction of Marcos and Josi's house. What should have been completed already has turned into a two year project that STILL isn't complete. They have turned their own home into a safe house and study for 15+ indigenous boys. We want them to have their own space as a family of four!


Marcos and Raquel, along with their six children, serve and love in an indigenous community, sharing and living out the Gospel.
