No one person can do the task but Jesus gave this task to His Church. What part does He want you to take in this great undertaking? Ask Him, "God, what do you want me to do? God, where do you want me to go?"
David's Well is a mission which endeavors to establish churches throughout Latin America while demonstrating the love of God through providing food, medical attention, school supplies, aqueducts, and building projects along with sharing the word of God. David's Well is a primary partner of White River Christian Church - Global Expansion. Juan & Ydalia Rodriquez are the missionaries.
Well over 15,000 people have been led to the Lord Jesus Christ since the mission was started in 1987. There are 160 congregations with more than 50 ministers who in turn are training other leaders. Five medical clinics have been constructed in remote villages offering treatment to more than 12,000 people each year. Another 10,000 people are treated annually through volunteer doctors making bi-monthly trips to outlying communities. In addition, there are boarding houses for high schools and college students, benevolent ministries such as jail ministries, and casket programs for the poor. Sixty-five aqueducts have been constructed to provide fresh water to villages. In February of 2009 a Well Drilling unit was purchased by White River and the first well was drilled in the village of Bahia Grande. WRCC traditionally sends 2-3 trips each year. These involve teaching and evangelism as well as work trips. For more information on our mission or to find out how you can be involved contact any member of our Global Expansion team or Dan Crosley.
David's Well has been blessed with strong leadership through Juan Rodríguez, his wife Ydalia and their daughter Yolanda (currently a university student in the Dominican Republic). Juan became a Christian in his native land of the Dominican Republic where he planted numerous congregations and preached in others. In view of the fact that Juan was one of the top preachers and evangelists in his country, he was sent as a missionary to Central America in 1987.
Since arriving in Panama, Juan has given tireless effort to expanding God's Kingdom throughout Latin America. Currently he oversees work in both Panama and Costa Rica. He has trained evangelists who work in a number of other countries as well. Thousands of people have been brought to know the Lord Jesus Christ through their efforts.
The Republic of Kenya is a country in East Africa. It is bordered by Ethiopia to the north, Somalia to the northeast, Tanzania to the south, Uganda to the west, and Sudan to the northwest, with the Indian Ocean running along the southeast border. The capital city is Nairobi. The country is named after Mount Kenya, a very significant landmark and the second among the highest mountain peaks of Africa, and both were originally usually pronounced /ˈki¢°njə/ in English although the native pronunciation and the one intended by the original transcription Kenia was [ˈkenia]. Before 1920, the area now known as Kenya was known as the British East Africa Protectorate and so there was no need to mention mount when referring to the mountain.
Bryan & Kelly, Brock, Keith & Kathy Ham, Wallace & Mary Kamau, and Lee & Anne Marie Pruitt partner with Kenyans from the slum communities in serving the poor of Nairobi. The team uses Community Health Evangelism (CHE), a proven program through local churches that assists the urban poor and brings transformation through available resources, training, microenterprise, optimism, and faith. The team specifically works with the Missions of Hope International, which provides education, clothing, and adequate nutrition to the poorest children in the Mathare slum -- one of the worst slums in Africa.
Among the Maasai people, Dan & Connie Crum, Lynn & Dori Cazier, and Joe & Kim Cluff continue to train church leaders, strengthen the churches, and help with the construction of new church buildings. As ministries mature, CMF missionaries turn over local administration and oversight to national partners. Joshua & Ruth Barron are developing training and teaching materials for the churches in the Maa language.
The medical ministry among the Maasai is currently overseen by Maasai personnel under the guidance of the team. Eight CMF clinics treat tropical diseases, immunize children, and combat the HIV/AIDS crisis by offering blood testing and counseling services, medical treatment for opportunistic infections such as tuberculosis or pneumonia as well, provide antiretroviral medications to extend the quality of life of those affected, and set-up home-based care for those who are too ill to come to the clinic.
Tavriski Christian Institute (TCI) is a conservative evangelical seminary, which trains ministers for practical ministry in spreading God's Kingdom.
The idea to create a Christian education establishment in Kherson (regional center of Southern Ukraine) came into being in the mid of 1990s. It arose due to the clear understanding of a need for well educated ministers of local churches. A group of initiators started to work in the fall of 1996 and less than in a year, in August of 1997, the institute was officially registered.
The founder of TCI was Evangelical Christian Baptist Churches Union of the Kherson Region. The institute started with two programs for full time students - Christian Education and Christian Leadership. A part time program opened two years later. In 1999 TCI joined Euro-Asian Accreditation Association of Evangelical schools and started the process of its programs accreditation. In June 2000 the first graduation took place. In 2004 the first two programs got their accredidations.
Today TCI unites 102 students from five different evangelical denominations. It is a big Christian family, consisting of people who differ in age, character, upbringing and interests, united by the common purpose - to serve Christ fruitfully. There are church pastors, missionaries, evangelists, and leaders of other ministries here. Also church youth who committed their lives to the Lord and are willing to get good training in order to fulfill their commitment attend TCI.
TCI is not just a local educational establishment. The brothers and sisters from Kherson, Nikolayev, Kirovograd, Sumy, Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Zaporozhe, Zhitomir, Vinnitsa, Kiev Regions, Crimea and also Uzbekistan, Russia, Belarus, Georgia, Israel are studying here. Today TCI is real proof of the reality of Christians crossing denominational boundaries and collaborating together. It is also greatly contributing to the idea of church leaders' education necessity.
WRCC helped pave the way for the development of the Georgia Extension through a preliminary investigation to Georgia. Later, just a month after the Russian invasion, a prayer team was sent by WRCC. WRCC then became the first sponsor of the Georgian Extension. Pastors Timothy Brock and Dan Crosley taught one of the first courses at this new TCI Extension. Having some experience of working in the other countries, TCI staff and leaders asked God to show us new opportunity for the ministry. The door was opened in the Caucasus where political instability and special desire for freedom and independence became a national feature or historical tradition for many. But at the time the region was in religious vacuum and Christians didn't always have an opportunity to gain integral knowledge and skills for their ministry in church and society.
Desiring to meet the needs of local Georgian churches during the years 2006 - 2008, TCI invited young leaders from that region to study at TCI in Ukraine. At the same time we were discussing the possibility of opening TCI Extension in Georgia.
In the end of November, 2009 we had the first class of TCI Georgian Extension. There are 15 students studying there at this time. Most of them are ministers and pastors in the churches.
Many people ask us why it was Georgia? The answer is because we see a special strategic value of this region:
Georgia is a country that maintains peace with Azerbaijan and Armenia, and the citizens of this country also have free access to Turkey.
Nowadays we see that Georgia has rather democratic principals and religious freedom. It'll allow us, with God's help, to build big and secure project to further God's Kingdom
The National Bible Institute is located in Queretero, Mexico. The Institute is a co-ed college that currently has 31 students. The students study to become ministers during the week, and each weekend they take the gospel to adjacent areas.
Mexico has a large un-evangelized population. This is particularly true in Central Mexico where the Bible Institute is located. The Bible Institute is fully staffed by Mexican nationals. They are dedicated to raising up a trained leadership to effectively preach and plant congregations that can be self sustaining and in turn plant other congregations. While being trained, students actively participate in hands-on efforts throughout Mexico.
The Institute was originally established through the help of Workers for Mexico, an organization whose mission is to take the gospel of Christ to the people of Mexico through the support of national evangelists and benevolent works. Mexico is a country of 110 million people seeking to know God. Workers for Mexico presents the simple gospel of the New Testament Scripture and strives to serve with compassion as Jesus would, to also help children and the needy, in a country that struggles economically. All of the churches and works are located among the poorer colonies in towns and cities.
The National Bible Institute also has a Spanish blog at:

In 2012 WRCC felt lead to take our relief partnership in a new direction. We began a new partnership with Northwest Haiti Christian Mission. NHCM is an Independent Christian Church organization dedicated to establishing and partnering with indigenous churches to help bring people in Northwest Haiti out of spiritual, physical and social poverty to demonstrate God’s love for all. NHMC is built around partnerships with churches and individuals who are interested in ministry in Haiti. Every year, hundreds of volunteers travel to Northwest Haiti on short-term trips to participate in the work of the mission.
Through the local church, NHCM serves thousands of people across Northwest Haiti regardless of their age, gender, or religion. They do so through collection of programs that include – among others – primary schools, feeding projects, orphanages, medical clinics, church planting, a Bible college, and agricultural development. They are the largest employer in the zone and one of the largest ministries in Haiti. Through God’s leading,
WRCC has chosen to focus on serving the most vulnerable in Haiti – children with special needs. Here are a few facts:
The primary ministry by NHCM is called the Miriam Center and it is the only one of its kind in Northwest Haiti. It is dynamic ministry encompassing five areas: an orphanage, a baby orphanage, a community outreach program, a special-needs learning program and a school for the deaf.
Orphanage and Baby Orphanage – Miriam Home and Rou’s Corner: At these homes, special-needs and terminally-ill children receive around-the-clock care. The children are well fed with nutritious meals, and they receive regular physical therapy and medical care. Miriam Home facilities houses special-needs children who have been abandoned or are at high risk in the community, at varying levels of independent and managed living.
Community Outreach – “For Jonathan’s Sake” Program: This program provides daily care and outreach to special-needs children in the community and their families, including meals, physical therapy and education.
Education Program – Luke 2:52 School: This program provides a foundation of learning for all areas of the Miriam Center, providing both school-like structure and regular physical therapy.
Deaf Ministry: The Miriam Center’s deaf ministry encompasses a school for hearing-impaired community members and residents of the Miriam Home. All instruction is done in ASL.
