Fellowship International Mission is involved in a wide range of ministries directly linked to the establishing of churches. They do this by (1) Pro- claiming the Gospel world-wide by every means possible, (2) Leading peo- ple to trust Christ as Savior, (3) Discipling new believers, (4) Establishing local, indigenous, independent, biblically sound churches to nurture believ- ers to reach their communities for Christ, and (5) Assisting in the training and mobilization of full-time national Christian workers.

LWI provides needed clean water and medical attention, along with the Living Water of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which alone satisfies the deep- est thirst. LWI’s services are provided in developing countries. Locals are trained to operate, maintain and service community water systems. The goal is to provide services by establishing independent nonprofit organiza- tions in the country being served. LWI also offers limited medical assis- tance and training in health and hygiene. Through its drill camp near Houston, LWI trains volunteers to operate portable drilling rigs.

Floresta provides support to farmers, encourages the production of trees for domestic use, and pro- motes reforestation and land preservation. Current work includes projects in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Mexico, Tanzania, and other countries.

Medical Teams International’s first line of service is primarily that of a hu- manitarian world responder service (a type of 911 call on an international scale). They send volunteer medical personnel for crisis situations, not only mobilizing retired doctors and nurses, but current medical profession- als. Secondarily, they distribute humanitarian aid. In addition, they operate mobile dental clinic units in the United States for the working poor. They do not sell their services but are totally supported by donations. This is pure Christian charitable work of helping those who are truly in need.

FWM believes that when Jesus Christ lived in this world, He had special love for the sick and crippled. They try to share the same concern now for the poor, especially those with physical immobility. The chairs are distributed free to those in need, re- gardless of one’s religious affiliation if any.

Mercy Ships utilizes ocean-going hospital ships to bring medical care and community development to the world’s poorest peoples. Surgeons per- form thousands of operations to remove tumors, correct cleft lips and pal- ates, give sight to the blind, repair fistulas, and perform a wide range of orthopaedic operations. Medical and dental teams visit prearranged sites and establish field clinics. They carry out vaccination programs, dental care, minor operations, and medical screening.
