Mission: Our mission is to do “light” stuff in a “dark” world. To not merely listen to the Word…but to do what it says. We want to serve, love, live and give all we can…while leaving the results up to God. We want to tell 2.7 BILLION people about Jesus Christ…but we are going to start by just “being the church”. We want to do all this with only God’s strength and provision, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.
Results: A fledgling non-profit organization founded in October of 2009. We are determined to share the love of Jesus Christ in word and deed on a local, national, and international level. During our first few years of existence we have seen God show up in some amazing ways. Some highlights include: helping to fund the mobilization of a food ministry in San Luis, Mexico; opening a sewing academy in Pakistan that can teach 40 women per year a new trade in order to keep them out of slavery; the opening of the first independent Christian school in Pakistan which is home to >170 children, and the digging of 11 wells which provide water to thousands!
Programs: Discipleship, Education, and Justice.

We have been supporting VWS largely due to the excellent and committed leadership of Steve Vines. His heart for missions around the world is contagious and elicits compassion and a desire to help those who are impoverished in body, mind and spirit. We are grateful to be part of VWS and to know that our contributions help supply clean water, education, jobs, food and other basic necessities just to live. We receive regular updates from Steve which helps us stay connected to the people VWS serves in Pakistan. Steve truly has a servant's heart, which I believe is why VWS succeeds.

Steve Vines, director of Vertical World Solutions in the USA, is an amazing Christian man. He introduced us to VWS several years ago and we have been active contributors in this important ministry ever since. WATER....we can't live without it and neither can anyone else. God provides, we are just the tools to help supply clean water to folks in Pakistan with their own assistance. Steve speaks and shares up to date e-mails and video feeds to all of us, keeping us aware of where the money goes and how many people we have been able to help. When we can't go to serve, we can all donate for others to serve.

Steve Vines, director of Vertical World Solutions, has done an excellent job
of contacting interested people to let them know of God's activity in
ministries in outside the U.S. as well as inside the U.S. By checking out
various ministries, he has been able to describe the work of God and invite
people to prayerfully give of their money and their prayers. He has done a
great job of financially assisting a work in Pakistan that I have been a
part of for several years. I believe you can trust his integrity and his
desire to help local ministers reach their own people.

I loved the idea behind VWS, helping a national impact his own country. That is what I believe overseas mission should be more about. I am also impressed with the fact that almost all of the money donated is used for its requested purpose and not just a small amount of the money with a majority going to overhead expenses. I also think the projects that are done through VWS are long term solutions to proplems not just quick fixes. I feel very good about supporting VWS with my money and my prayers.

I donate to Vertical World Solutions because I am very concerned that the best use be made of the money I give. I believe that VWS makes the most of every dollar with most of it going to the work and very little to advertising or fundraising. It is also encouraging to see the faces of the people who are being helped and read their testimonies. VWS makes missions feel personal. When I give to them, I feel a real part of the ministry because I see what is happening on the field. I am not simply writing an impersonal check. I know for sure that Steve and Rachel have a passion for the work. I would recommend VWS to anyone looking for a cause to donate. You can be a part even if you have a small amount to give.

In 2011, I traveled to Pakistan and saw what VWS has been doing. I visited a slave village where they had clean water, I visited the RHS primary school and sewing schools. Believe me when I say that lives are being changed. We were able to teach and encourage the local workers and the people. VWS has been doing a lot more since then and has kept us up to date with their work.

It is such a feel good feeling to donate to VWS, this non profit organization does an amazing job of doing what they say they are going to do. They show us PROOF over and over of the dollars being used to make HUGE impacts. It feels so good to be a part of something so powerful. This organization is so trustworthy and they take their jobs so serious and are very passionate about all they do. I love to see exactly where the money is going and the real faces of those that are showered with the many blessings done by VWS. Thank you for all you do... KEEP SHINING!!!
