I applied for a scholarship towards my degree in International Development with Activated Ministries in March 2012. I found their website extremely user-friendly and easy to navigate. In my interactions with them as they guided me through the application process and subsequent approval of my scholarship, their staff were always extremely professional, courteous and prompt in answering emails. I really appreciated the help towards my tuition fees through the scholarship, and I have since recommended them to several of my friends.

My name is JIn Kato. I am a Project Director for A.N.T. Relief Network (ainote.jp.fm) and a founding member of the Tohoku Relief Mission. From the beginning of April, 2011, through July 2012 we coordinated more than 30 trips bringing relief supplies and volunteers in the aftermath of the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami. (see tohokutrip.blogspot.com) While our work was originally supported by a network of personal friends, as time went on, projects grew larger, and more volunteers interested in helping came forward, we needed financial support to continue the relief effort. A friend who was involved in mission work overseas suggested we ask Activated Ministries for help. I have to say, the were a Godsend! Because of their support, we were able continue our relief work, and then move on to supporting the reconstruction towards the latter half of 2012. I was especially impressed with the promptness of their replies. They were very easy to work with and understanding of our situation, and continue to support our ongoing projects. I can honestly say that we could not have continued this far without their help.

My Name is Jonah Bishop, I've been a Mission Project coordinator for the last 10 years in the Philippines, several years ago someone suggested I approach Activated Ministries USA for sponsorship of Educational Curricula and Character Building Materials in order to donate them to very poor schools in some of our outreach areas. Since that time Activated Ministries has granted each of several requests in full, sponsoring materials reaching thousands of children. I have been very impressed with the speed in which this organization has responded in answer to our missions requests, as well as the simplicity of the requirements which are needed. I pray that Activated Ministries will continue to be able to raise sufficient funding to participate in helping those in need around the world

My name is Shelly Guild. I am one among countless others whose future has been changed forever by Activated Ministries. After more than a decade spent as a missionary in Indonesia and then 4 years in Mexico, God showed me to go back to school. I'm a wife and a mother of 3, with a full time job and goals for my kids' future. There was no practical way for me to fund my education. Activated Ministries has an incredible scholarship program for people like me, called In Recognition of Service. AM generously granted me my first scholarship and my life will never be the same. I plan to continue my education towards a degree in nursing and use that to serve others, as Activated Ministries has served me.

We have been working full time as a volunteer counsellors to seafarers visiting ports in Australia. For many years, Activated Ministries have assisted with generous sponsorship of inspirational books and magazines which have inspired the faith of many seafarers. Some of the major issues faced by crew members are isolation while spending months and sometimes years away from friends and family, stress relating to the changing conditions of the industry, and depression. The counselling we provide is vital to the physical and mental health of the seafarers we meet on a daily basis. The reading materials sponsored by Activated Ministries have been an integral part of our Port Welfare Ministry.

My name is Abner Olivieri and I have worked as a volunteer worker in Thailand, helping with a variety of programs, most of which were related to helping children. Activated Ministries helped with sponsorship for our English incentive educational programs in schools here, as well as our hospital visitation program. I find Activated Ministries an exceptional organization that is motivated by sincere desire to both help people, and help projects that can have an impact. Me and my co-workers are very thankful for the help they have provided for our projects, and can see ourselves working together with Activated Ministries for years to come.

I received a scholarship after serving on the mission field for three years. The scholarship was just what I needed and right on time. I am honored that Activated Ministries thought enough of my service that they contributed $1,000.00 to my educational needs. Thank you so much!

Thanks to Activated Ministries our Youth Center in Taiwan was able to purchase much needed motivational books for our library. It was very easy to communicate with their staff, and their desire to help the missionaries on the field to have the greatest impact is really admirable. Motivational books and personal development programs are a very important first step towards spiritual Christian values. And Activated Ministries have provided that needed help to purchase the books that will continue to be an asset in bringing the youth of Taiwan to the knowledge of the Lord and His Word.
