Past, Present, and Future!
ACTION began in the Philippines in 1975 and is an international, evangelical fellowship of missionaries with main sending offices in Canada, United Kingdom, and the USA. 265 missionaries minister in over 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and Latin America. We presently need an additional 100 missionaries (age 40 to 80) to work among the 3.2 million untrained pastors worldwide. We are also trusting God for 120 additional missionaries (age 21 to 81) to minister the Gospel and compassionate care to 100 million street children and an estimated143 million orphans throughout the world. “Seeing the people, He (Jesus) felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest’" (Matthew 9:36-38, nasb).
