Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Religion, Religion-Related

Mission: Mission Statement: To serve the poor in Mexico, and further the Kingdom of God through worship and intercession. Voice of the Bride "Worship and Compassion" Ministries exists for two purposes. We are committed to serving the poor and needy, specifically in Mexico. Daily, we are either picking up donated food supplies for distribution in Tijuana, or distributing food and other items to those in need in the poorer parts of Tijuana. This includes orphanages, rehabs, elderly homes, women's shelters, infirmaries, and various street outreaches, where many people hear the Gospel, as well as receive food for their families. VOB is also committed to furthering the Kingdom of GOD through worship and intercession, believing that prayer and worship 'grease the wheels' of mission work. VOB has sponsored and led worship in several targeted worship and intercession events. We have led worship at various outreaches in Tijuana, and are holding regular worship events in San Diego, designed to encourage people to spend extended time before the Lord in worship and prayer, and, specifically, to extend GOD's Kingdom on behalf of the nations through worship and intercession.

Target demographics: provide food, basic needs and further education.

Direct beneficiaries per year: 25 families adopted by our program, a dozen facilities of Children & Elderly homes, infirmaries, and rehabs, several outreaches of 200 people receiving a food dispense

Geographic areas served: San Diego/Tijuana

Programs: Food and basic resources collected. Private school sponsorship. Outreaches. Spread Awareness on Social Media. {Follow us on Facebook "I Love TJ" = www.facebook.com/voiceofthebride}. Be sure to look at our photos and watch video highlighter!

Voice of the Bride ministry loves people in practical and spiritual ways that are very effective. They are steady in their calling and always strive to keep every comitment. They feed the poor, help with schooling and present music that worship and glorifies the Lord. Their hands and hearts are always available to lend a needed hand. My personal experience has been with Carol and Wayne as they lead worship and honor the First nations People and in leading worship in D. C. at David's Tent, which is a 24/7 place of Worship. I have seen them push through when their strength and energy is depleted to complete what they volunteered to do. It is my and my husbands's, privilege to help support this ministry in a small way. They use all donations wisely putting the monies to very good efficient use! Julia A. Wright

What can I say about this ministry, and Wayne and Carol? A whole lot! The Love of God that fills them, is evident because it is poured out of their lives and their ministry. The compassion of Jesus is clearly displayed, because it is the crux of who they are and how they minister. They absolutely are the hands and feet of Christ- and they don't stop at just serving or doing...They relate, and stay in relationship with those to whom they minister. The "extra mile" is normal every day operating procedure. I am a Pastor of a Hispanic church, in Greensboro, NC. I have known Wayne and Carol for a long time. On a recent visit to NC, they came to my small church, to share and minister in worship. It was amazing how they easily blended and fell in love with our community. They served us as if we were twice the size. Numbers didn't matter- the presence of God did. I ran a feeding program ministry in Nicaragua, and my associate there and his family had to flee the country because of the political problems and violence in the country. They ended up in Tijuana, Mexico. Wayne went out of his way to find them, when I told them they were there. He was able to take them food and supplies, even though they were hours out of his way. He stayed in touch, and continued to find ways to minister to them. Heart felt, hands on- Christ centered and led, this is this ministry. Everyone they come in contact with, they treat as special- because they are special to God. Incredible people with an incredible ministry.

Voice Of The Bride Ministries are whole heartedly devoted to blessing the downtrodden and forgotten. So much goes into feeding and blessing the homeless and unfortunate people of San Diego and Tijuana. So many families are blessed that would never happen without Wayne and Carol's never ending work to help this tiny corner of our world be a better place. So much emphasis is on providing physical, tangible help, but spiritual help is also given freely and truly from their hearts.

Voice of the Bride Ministries just plain makes me feel good! They partner with us and other ministries who find truly needy and deserving kids in northern Baja California, feed them with nutrition they gather in affluent southern California, and teach the Good News of the gospel by example.
The world would be a better place if we had more like this!

We were blessed to be asked to partner with Voice of the Bride and Wayne some years ago. Wayne is one of those folks you meet who is exactly what he seems - what you see is what you get. And what you see is an overarching love for less fortunate people in our neighboring community of Tijuana. Every week, week after week, Wayne tirelessly transports, delivers and distributes nutrition to deserving kids, those in poor health who can't help themselves, and adults struggling with, and recovering from, addictions of the body and spirit.
Wayne is a real gift, and an inspiration to us at Hilarious Givers.

This nonprofit is definitely worth investing in. Wayne and Carole pour their whole hearts into this ministry. Wayne works tirelessly day & night to provide for the impoverished and needy in Mexico, ministering to the whole person! Carole brings respect, hope and unity to the First Nations people of this nation - a beautiful picture of reconciliation and intercession.

I have never seen people so dedicated to using every thing they are given to pass right back to those in need. I have zero doubt in my mind that when my family invests time or money with Wayne it goes exactly where it is needed and as far as it can. I love that Wayne even has things for the youngest members of our family to help with and makes each of his helpers feel like their help no matter how small makes a difference.

I am honored to work alongside of this ministry traveling nationally and internationally with a worship band led by one of the directors who oversees the worship arm of VOB. The worship outreaches are strategic in serving people groups and providing worship and prayer on their behalf.

I have known the wonderful couple who started this great non-profit since I was in college. They have hearts of gold and seek to help people in extreme poverty. I have helped in the past because I know my money goes to help the needy not pad the leaders pockets. This couple shows what loving Jesus and others is all about. Generous beyond belief...know that your money will touch lives. I have seen pictures and videos and watched the joyful faces of the needy being touched by God's love through Voice of the Bride. Voice of the Bride seeks to help people have changed lives through Jesus and do so through love and meeting needs, whether it is food, toys for needy children or helping young people get a proper education. They touch individual lives with Christ's love.

Voice of the Bride ministries is an incredible non profit that does so much to impact those in need. They are faithful to the mission of feeding the poor in Mexico as well as volunteering their time a and service to so many other great causes that bring such a positive impact to so many areas. At times this non profit is even a bridge that brings people groups together, helping to heal divides through their hearts to worship. Voice of the Bride's leaders, Carol and Wayne are people of the highest integrity and they really carry a passion for what they do and those they encounter are always changed for the better. For anyone looking for a non profit to donate or give towards, this one is a fantastic one because it will bear MUCH fruit and go such a long way. Voice of the Bride is more than a 5 star non profit!! It deserves 10 stars!!

I have previously volunteered for and, since then, continued following VOB’s ventures with the people of Tijuana as well as those of the First Nations, and I am always impressed by their commitment to their pursuit of service and worship. They are true to their cause and have been so for several years now, faithful to update their sponsors and those who are only able to contribute with prayers and an occasional lend of hand. Because of their size, nearly all of their donations go straight into the ministry, with only their living expenses being covered. What’s more, they have been able to sponsor children in Tijuana through school who would otherwise had to have dropped out due to lack of funds! This nonprofit is all heart!

Voice of the Bride goes far above the expectations of any not for profit organization that I have heard of, from the time dedicated regardless of circumstance to the genuine care and intention of the staff (however small it may be on that day!), Voice of the Bride is one of the best I have ever served!

The NFP was began by Wayne Kiger-Rice, a man invested in his ministry and solely funded by the support that he and his wife, Carol, have fundraised and have coming in from faithful donors, month after month, some giving for over a decade! Wayne has partnered with many local churches, food stores, and warehouses, all offering the extra food that would be disposed of due to the inability to send it out and brings it to those in need across the border to Tijuana. His connections have grown immensely in the past 7 years as he continued to serve diligently, rain or shine, solo or with other volunteers, all with the intent on not only feeding the hungry, but embracing the virtue of compassion. His genuine love for people has extended not only to those hungry souls, but has granted him good standing with the aduanas at the border who know him by name and face since he crosses 3 times a week! He also went so far as to connect with the locals and partner with their ministries to make a bigger impact and spread the wealth to even deeper reaches of Baja California. His partners have helped him pour into the rehab centers, orphanages, convents, and even the aqueducts where more and more homeless are finding themselves. His personal impact alone has also affected the lives of several families that he has befriended and personally makes the extra effort to support. Wayne's love for people knows no bounds.

When I was able to begin serving, it was merely by helping sort food and load his truck as it would cross the border. Later, I found myself available to go down and take part in the more intimate part of the organization and found myself enamored by the joy the locals had when we arrived. They were eager to not only help me with the off-loads and prep work, but also just as eager to invite me in, meet their families, and even share what they had with me. The love reciprocates even today as I am no longer able to volunteer since having moved out of San Diego.

Wayne has invested a great deal into the operations, resource allocation, connections, and personal attention he gives to each member of the team (volunteers in San Diego and Tijuana and sponsors from across the country) Regardless of how little money may come in, he still finds a way to make it work and puts an emphasis on reminding himself daily of why he does what he does... His heart never waivers from his passion, and his passion will always be to serve.

All in all, Voice of the Bride is, by far, one of the most intentional and loving ministries that I have had the privilege of serving alongside and, should I ever find myself back in San Diego, you can be sure that I will be back in the midst of sorting spoiled foods from good food and loading the truck that finds its way across the border each week. It is an opportunity to see the world through new eyes and the joy and heartfelt gratitude that is reciprocated when Wayne arrives is second to none. If you are looking for a NFP to sponsor, partner with or volunteer for, THIS IS IT!

I am very careful about which non-profits I give to. I want almost all the money to directly help people who it can directly make their lives better. Wayne and Voice of Bride reach out to people suffering and lacking right across the border from millions who live in luxury without even seeing the lack a few miles away. Voice of the Bride not only sees it, they do something about it.

I have know Wayne for maybe 15 years or more and watched him closely at work always selfless and serving. He is a most incredible man with a genuine heart for the poor. He works very hard hours on end each week to gather food and supplies, load and unloading trucks to the brim, crossing the crowded border several times a week to reach the needy with not only an abundance of food and supplies but with an overflow of God’s love. I know for sure he and his selfless team impact many individuals and families both now and for eternity. Every dollar you invest in his ministry will be used wisely with no abuse.

I am so thankful that Voice of the Bride exists. They are multi functional and inclusive. They minister to the poor in Tijuana and have developed relationship with the people who need them the most. I am happy to donate the little I can in terms of socks, shoes, hats,gloves and small gifts for Christmas. Wayne sends pictures on Facebook of the children and it makes me so happy to see them happy. It's a way for me to give to the poor in a simple way for a disabled, senior on a fixed income. other parts of the ministry that impress me are the worship trips they take to be with the Native Americans in worship. It is such an inspiring work thy do for the Kingdom of God. These people and their volunteers are inspiring and hard working for those who need them.

Voice of the Bride is tireless in their service to the poor. I've known Wayne and Carol Kiger-Rice for over 25 years as dear friends and partners in similar works. They carry the big picture all at the same time stopping to help individuals and families in dire need. Wayne and Carol move forward in integrity and know how to take a penny and stretch it into a dollar. Mostly through laying their lives down for the cause. I highly recommend them and their work among the poor as an organization well worth your investment!

I love this ministry because when I went with them and witnessed the many, many people that were validated as good people but were very poor and needed the love of God and to receive that love though food and fellowship and music. They (the people) have received this faithful Voice Of the Bride ministry for years and know they will continue to receive that love. Wayne and Carol love the Lord and they love TJ and all the people as well as worshipping the Lord and giving HIM all the glory!

When he believes in something to goes to the max to make sure everybody is taken care and has all they need!

I have supported this ministry for several years now and can't speak highly enough of it. The work that they are doing in Mexico to feed the poor is amazing. And it's not just drive-by donations; they foster relationships with both the recipients of the food and with other local people helping with the handouts.

I personally helped with one of the food giveouts years ago and was shocked to see an incredibly long line of people waiting for food when they didn't know if the donation truck would get held up at the border. The kindness that the team showed the people was extremely inspiring.

I met Wayne for the first time when i attended the final Desert Stream Leadership Training held in San Juan Capistrano, CA in 2004 where he was a leader. I got to know him better when i was invited to be on the leadership team and we became close friends after that.

I was drawn to him because of his heart for the poor, the orphan, and the marginalized across the California border in Tijuana, Mexico. He was working full time in San Diego as a welfare case manager for the local government there but a few times a week was picking up food that was going to be thrown away from local stores like Starbucks and Safeway and then was delivering it at night in Tijuana.

He was sharing with me one night about how he loved the people of Mexico and wanted to turn his nocturnal activities into a full-time ministry. I was moved to give him a little donation and with that small amount of money he informed me that that was the sign he was looking for to quit his day job and start a full-time ministry to the poor. I said, "You quit your job because of me!!!????????"

But not long after that we donated one delivery truck that we had outgrown in our steel construction business and then a second one and finally a third one since his ministry had the grown to the point where they needed to pick up food in San Diego while they were delivering food across the border.

One night Wayne invited me and some friends to come down and see how Voice of the Bride operated and to join him on a cross-border run one night to feed the poor. I really like adventures but I have to admit i was a little frightened about venturing across the border into poor areas of Tijuana after dark. My fears proved unwarranted and i got to witness and serve these beautiful poor people, my brothers and sisters in Christ who know a lot about poverty and suffering.

That one visit changed my life as well as my perspective on the poor and i would not have had the opportunity had VOB not invited me to witness first hand what they do in Mexico. VOB is one of a few ministries who i regularly support financially since i have seen their operation first hand and can vouch for their thrift. I have seen the spartan way Wayne and Greg live so that bulk of our donations to VOB can make their way to help the poor, the sick, the orphan, and the aged.

Please support (and visit!) this wonderful ministry so this group of passionate men and women can fulfill our Heavenly Father's call to love our southern neighbor!

I have personally volunteered for Voice of the Bride and am so grateful they exist. I was shocked to see the remote areas they reach and the dire needs of families they meet each week. Children literally waited hours sitting on the street curbs for us to arrive at 11 pm just to receive food as this was our last stop. If you volunteer anywhere this upcoming year I hope you will partner with this organization.

I began volunteering in 9th grade for Voice of The Bride. At first it was all about doing my community service for high school credits. We would pick up food, sort it and box it for people less fortunate than ourselves. After understanding what compassion was really about and really liking what I did, I continued even after graduating. Wayne has taught me the importance of consistent dependability, teamwork, and positive attitude. Volunteering has helped me to grow a heart of compassion for others because I see how hard he works each day to selflessly serve. I have always wanted to be a missionary since I was 6 years old. By working with Voice of the Bride I am a missionary to many even though I haven't traveled anywhere yet. Volunteering has been a great training ground for me. Thank you for letting me be part of such a great mission!

I have been a volunteer with Voice of the Bride for 4 years. This organization has far exceeded in giving, loving, sharing hope and love. They serve many people throughout San Diego and Mexico with such dedication and hearts of compassion. The love of Christ and His love for people is eminent in their walk and ministry. Anyone that volunteers feels like they are an integral part of their mission. There are so many ways to be a part of Voice of The Bride; giving your volunteer time, partnering with donations and money as well as prayers are a valuable way that everybody can participate as a missionary. Co-laboring with hearts of compassion and integrity has helped me to grow. They are consistent in all they do even when they are tired or under the weather. Their heart of mercy is contagious!

There are few things more needed than food when you are hungry. Most of us reading these reviews are not hungry for food. We are hungry for healthy marriages, healthy relationships in community and much more. As friends with both Carol and Wayne, I called upon them if they could intercede for me when my burden felt too great. As they interceded and worshipped on my behalf, my heavy burden lifted - quickly. honestly, who are these two? So precious and loving, it is my joy to support them in reaching out and loving on others. A huge heart-felt thank you to you both!

Volunteering for this ministry was a great experience! I loved being a part of what VOB does. When they told me they help the poor in Tijuana, Mexico, I was shocked. But when I realized that VOB was committed to serving people in Tijuana no matter what, I knew I had found a gem. Being a part of what VOB does has shown me so many things and helped me grow so much. I am at least a little bit more selfless and a little bit more wasteless. VOB basically takes what others don't want and turns it into gold. I'm talking about perfectly good food that would otherwise be thrown away for whatever silly reason someone came up with. It's tonto (that's spanish for silly/stupid). But seriously, we went to drug rehabs, AIDS clinics, churches, orphanages, shelter homes, and elderly homes. Everywhere we went they were so grateful for what we were doing. Many times they hugged us and thanked us. It was so heartwarming to see. My favorite part was going to the drug rehabs. I myself am a former drug addict so I really feel for these guys. My first time visiting one they showed me a locked room with a small opening in the door, almost like a cell, except larger. They told me the guys inside were detoxing and could not be let out. So I asked if I could go in and give them some pastries. They said sure. I got to sit down with these guys, eats some sweets, and share my story of how I got clean from drugs. They told me about their families and why they had decided to get clean. It was so encouraging for everyone and I'm thankful to VOB for doing this ministry full time to continue having encounters like this.

The photo is of me and a couple guys I met at a rehab center.

The last few years have been financially tough for us. I think it has been for many. Every dollar seems to matter. My family still wanted to give outside of itself. VOB (Voice of the Bride Ministries) was the perfect solution. We knew that every thing we put into the organization would be used to help many. We know this group has such integrity and proven effectiveness. They help many on every human level: physically, emotionally and spiritually. What is encouraging for my family, is that, a little from us can be stretched and do more than was imaginable.

Voice of the Bride is tireless in serving the less fortunate. They get involved in a personal way not just giving out the help but they connect with the recipients. This is a powerful part of their work. As someone once said, "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care," and that is true with Voice of the Bride, they make people cared for and that's what they make known, an example worth following.

I have personally witnessed the "who", "what" and "why" of Voice Of the Bride and this non profit is a true example of "Giving, Loving and Serving!!" The children and adults they feed, the lives they change and the love they provide has brought more years to life and life to years in the people they serve. Dedication, conviction, humility and love are but a few of the many ingredients Voice Of the Bride Ministries share with every person they touch. It has been an amazing year watching Wayne and Carol change peoples lives and help create a more healthy, sustainable world!! Thanks for leading the way for other non profits to see how its really done!! Dr. Ron Oberstein

Voice of the Bride is the most selfless organization I have ever had the privilege of working with. Wayne and Carol want nothing more than to love those who they serve. They do not care about recognition or size, they only want to be a light and a support. They could live their entire lives without being celebrated for what they are doing, as long as they are seeing breakthrough and positive change in the lives of those they focus on loving. For this reason, I think that Voice of the Bride should be a celebrated non-profit.

I became a volunteer last summer. I have volunteered for many ministries around the world with similar missions of assisting the poor. However, I have never worked with a ministry that was so personal and so authentic. There was no paperwork to fill out, no orientation...we just jumped in a big truck and headed downtown to sort food and other supplies to bring down into Tijuana and distribute to those in need. Voice of the Bride has two qualifications for serving: a heart desiring to help the poor, and a good back for lifting boxes! There is always an overwhelming need that the finite supplies cannot ever completely meet, but Wayne is still generous and wise with what he has and how he distributes supplies. We cross through la aduana and immediately a familiar man recognizes the truck and asks for food. Wayne pulls over to share a bag of chips with him and wishes him a good day. When one family who usually comes to the large outreach to pick up bread for the week has a daughter who gets sick, Wayne starts to make another stop at their home in the hills. The large truck rolls up some steep, Tijuana hills to this family's home where they are blessed with even more than they would have received at the large outreach in the streets where most others meet. At the end of the night, Wayne gives good friends in Tijuana rides back to their homes and blesses them with more food and supplies for the week. Very frequently, Wayne spends all day sorting and packing food in San Diego by himself, and the rest of the day driving through Tijuana and distributing by himself. He has made nearly a dozen connections with various individuals and ministries in the city, and strives to empower them all. You never hear him complain even though the work can be difficult and the days very long. He truly is an example of someone who desires above all else to serve.

The other side of the Voice of the Bride is headed up by Wayne's wife, Carol, an excellent musician and worship leader. Carol shares Wayne's desire only to serve others and never to attract attention or recognition. When I came to a worship night that Carol was leading at, even the set up of the room gave glory to God instead of the band. While most churches or ministries have the band play on a stage up at the front, where everyone faces the band, Carol places herself on equal ground and in the middle of the room along with everyone else. The worship night was full of honor and prayer for various issues concerning people and nations in all parts of the world.

Voice of the Bride is truly an example of a great non-profit. The word non-profit hints at an organization that is motivated for other reasons than personal gain, which is exactly what Carol and Wayne exemplify. I was honored to volunteer for several months before moving out of town. I also had the joy of eating the best Tijuana street tacos to ever exist, and to meet my soon-to-be husband through this organization! Voice of the Bride really does attract excellence, and is well-deserving of honor!
