Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Religion, Religion-Related

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!

Target demographics: demonstrate the love of God

Direct beneficiaries per year: 16,000 people received clean water in West Africa, ~400 people received Christ through the El Inspiracion radio ministry in Bolivia; ~44 students graduated from The University of Divine Grace, Moldova equipped to share the Gospel in their religiously hostile homelands; 10 Weewak workers were trained in woodworking skills to supplement their income in Papua New Guinea; 20+ children received funds to help with schooling and transportation fees in Papua New Guinea; 1,100 people located in the jungles off of the Amazon were served by the medical mission boat in Bolivia; 4 Rama Cay Indians from Nicaragua received higher level biblical teaching from El Instituto Misionero Transcultural; 5 hurricane-resistant homes were built to relieve overcrowding and sanitation issues in Nicaragua; biblical training and educational opportunities were provided to more than 2,700 people in Moldova, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Bolivia, and Nicaragua.

Geographic areas served: 6 remote locations around the globe (Bolivia, Nicaragua, Moldova, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, West Africa)

Programs: completing infrastructure projects (such as well drilling, building homes, bridges, roads, airstrips, solar projects, latrines, delivering supplies, making repairs to assist missionaries in extremely remote areas)

I am really pleased to see and hear about all the good work FRIENDS in Action is doing for people in Africa, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, South America and Central America.
Its great to see the diversity of the projects and the skills that FIA volunteers are sharing to help develop mission works around the world.

What a wonderful thing to help provide water, to help provide transportation and to help equip national and European missionaries to accomplish their work. It's truly a picture of the body of Christ working together.

As I look around the world situation, I sometimes find it difficult to prioritize needs. FIA's mission can be characterized by " persistence for subsistence" . These people work tirelessly, obediently and with great perseverance to overcome the obstacles placed in their path while bringing basic infrastructure for subsistence to an indigenous people, in turn, the people begin to not only survive, but thrive, with the new found help and love of Christ. I am humbled to be able to assist them in this calling and share their joy, as God always shows His presence in making a way for their persistence to prevail! FIA's efforts lead to basic subsistence for these Children of God through the literal and virtual Living Water. The infrastructure and foundation provided on their mission field demonstrates that the "Kingdom of Heaven belong to such as these"

I love being involved with Friends In Action, Intl. (FIA). They've been meeting the spiritual and physical needs of people around the globe since 1992. With a long-term track record of financial accountability, completed projects, and transformed lives, I feel privileged to be part of their efforts. It's exciting to be part of demonstrating, not just talking about, God's love to those who haven't heard yet. Very kind and real people at their HQ in PA.
