At The Well we feel that Mission can be done anywhere. According to Barna Research Group, the United States in the 3 largest mission field (China and India are #1 and #2 respectively). There is a growing number of people throughout our country that do not know Christ, and that is why The Well started. But we also know that there is a strong need for mission work throughout the world. We are currently supporting two very different missions. Here's a little bit about each one.
:: Food For The Poor (Caribbean) ::
We have been collecting money for the organization, Food For the Poor. FFTP is a nonprofit organization that seeks to serve the poorest of the poor in 16 countries throughout the Caribbean. They are an inter-denominational ministry that not only provides food for the starving, but also builds small houses for the destitute, digs water wells for parched villagers, provides medicine and medical equipment for the sick and elderly, supports orphanages and education for children, and much more. The Well has committed to building a well through Food For The Poor. If you are interested in helping us achieve the goal of building a well in an impoverished nation Contact Us.
