Mission: Friends In Action, Intl. (FIA) exists to accelerate the spread of the Gospel to people groups who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ. FIA partners with missionaries, nationals, and indigenous people to provide infrastructure projects as a platform to share and demonstrate the love of God.
Results: Since FIA's inception in 1992, we have provided spiritual and physical assistance to 1,000's of indigenous people in some of the most remote locations around the globe. From clean water, teaching life-skills, teaching Biblical truth, constructing roads, homes, and airstrips, delivering supplies to jungle and bush missionaries, FIA is busy meeting needs to the glory of God!
