Likewise, this trip is open to non-medical professionals, too. While many participants will be from our Danville Campus, anyone is welcome! Additional trip members will focus their time on various construction projects, English immersion class with high school students, and triage at UMC.

Sep 5, Southland has been monitoring the needs in the Houston, TX area with Hurricane Harvey and would like to suggest two organizations that are providing support and relief for the people in the area.

Somebody Cares was established in Houston back in This collaboration of churches has done and continues to do remarkable work for the poor and marginalized. Somebody Cares has teams of people on the ground involved in relief work and assessing the needs for ongoing support after Hurricane Harvey. Another organization that would appreciate your support is Samaritan's Purse. Southland has a connection with New Hope through one of our staff members. New Hope is receiving teams to help with relief and clean up and has more information on their website under "Want To Help.

Jul 14, When local teachers are working with the teachers from Sonlight Academy, located in Port de Paix, Haiti. For the second year, Southland hosted the teachers from Sonlight for a week of workshops to help them become better teachers, improve their own skills at conflict resolution, and grow in their spiritual formation. Teachers from various schools led these workshops for the Sonlight teachers, introducing them to new methods of teaching, thinking about learning, and their roles as teachers.
Why does Southland support Sonlight Academy teachers this way? In Haiti, these teachers do not have access to continuing professional education. The teachers from Sonlight responded positively to the men and women who presented this summer. They said they were encouraged, challenged, refreshed, and supported by these men and women. They also expressed thanks to Southland for hosting, feeding, and gift-giving.
The presenters all expressed gratitude to these men and women who choose to go to Haiti, learn a new language and culture, and seek to help the children there learn to learn. Some of the teachers from this area are planning a trip to Sonlight this fall so they can better understand the conditions in which the Sonlight teachers work.
When God brings together teachers who love their students, love teaching, and want to make a kingdom impact. Apr 21, We love to extend hope to families in Central Kentucky in many different ways and one of those ways is with the Dollar Club.

Nov 11, Oct 17, The team went to serve all the wonderful students that have been at Haus Edelweiss learning how to encourage and extend hope in their ministries.

Oct 4, We have been touch with our partners and these photos are of a village, south of Haiti, where one of our partners are located. Southland will continue to stay in touch with our partners and give updates as we receive them. Sep 28, The vision is that every nation will have effective leaders of disciple-making movements impacting their churches, cultures, and countries for Christ. If this were true in the United States, there would be less than 10 million followers of Jesus.
But in reality here in the US, there are over 83 million followers of Jesus. We are definitely blessed here in the US and in Kentucky. And yet we are called to make disciples around the world. This means they are preparing men and women with graduate degrees to change their nations for Christ. From Russia to Kenya, from Poland to Armenia, from Uzbekistan to Estonia - preachers, teachers, social workers, directors of orphanages and schools, youth ministers, doctors, and scientists are all earning graduate degrees in practical ministry so they can plant churches, lead churches, and engage in kingdom work in whatever way is open to them in their nations.
Your giving directly supports TCMI so you are helping develop Christian leaders for significant service. Imagine how few believers there might be in those parts of the world if TCMI were not training men and women for significant service in their nations. Please pray for the TCMI staff and faculty, and for the students and graduates who are making an impact on their churches, cultures, and countries. Sep 12, Our friend, Kim, had been having car problems for a while.

By giving an extra dollar, we were able to help places like House of Hope, which is part of a hospital that cares for children with HIV and other illnesses. Often, the children live here full time because their parents abandon them. A local school received much needed supplies as well as a church and a physical therapy clinic. Many families were helped as well. Some had taken in orphans to care for as their own and two brothers were left to take care of their younger siblings without their parents.
Others were able to pay for school tuition, get supplies for homes and businesses and obtain much needed medicine. The hungry and the elderly were fed and supplies were provided in hopes for creating new job opportunities.
