Overview

In Moldova, instead of building roads or buildings, we are building into the lives of young people who come from, and are returning to, cultures where western personnel are not always welcomed. Most indigenous churches in Central Asia exist in the form of underground churches. UDG provides an opportunity for students from these countries to receive a biblical education, equipping them to return home to share God’s love in areas “closed” to western outreach. Learn More

Overview

In 2007, Hurricane Felix devastated the North East coast of Nicaragua. Thousands of homes were destroyed, roads were buried in debris, and military food supplies ran out quickly. FIA chose to assist the village of Boom Sirpi by providing immediate supplies of water, clothing, rice and other food items. FIA continues to be actively involved in providing practical and spiritual assistance to the Miskito people. Learn More

Overview

The Rama people are one of six indigenous people groups in Nicaragua. Living in wood shacks, often in the water, the Rama’s homes are susceptible to rot and storm damage. Since 2004, Friends in Action (FIA) has worked with the Rama people to develop a new village on the nearby mainland. With a goal of six new homes each year, Friends in Action continues to help the Rama build their new community. Learn More

Overview

In West Africa, water retrieval is typically done by the younger women and children within a tribe. It’s common to have to walk three or four miles to obtain unsanitary water while risking abduction, rape, and possibly even human trafficking. A village well means health, safety, and hope to these communities. As FIA volunteers drill, the site of construction workers and heavy machinery always draws a crowd! Partner missionaries or local pastors share the life-changing message of Jesus—the true Water of Life! Learn More 

 

Upcoming Trips

2018 and 2019 well-drilling trips are filled. We are planning for 2020 and beyond.

Testimonies from FIA Trips


“As soon as we hit water, the women began to sing and dance and a boy brought over a drum and there was a great celebration that lasted for about an hour. The pastor we partnered with took this opportunity to gather the people together and share the Love of Christ – the Source of Living Water. That night 40 of the villagers came to know Christ.”

– Volunteer to West Africa

“I left a piece of my heart in Nicaragua. Never did I ever expect to be so impacted in such a profound way in such a short time. I went to bless them, but I am the one who was blessed. It was an experience of a lifetime.”

– Volunteer to Rama Cay in Nicaragua

“I went once, and I was hooked! Now I come home to raise money, so I can return as many times as possible. Being involved in ministering to people who truly need it and are thankful for it with God’s love has brought joy and purpose to my own life.”

– Volunteer to the Miskito in Nicaragua
