The Gathering Wave ~ Date(s): 04-14-2015 to 04-16-2015 ~ Location: Durres, Albania ~ We are seeking to gather 100 Central European, Balkan and international missions leaders to launch this initiative. We want to discuss: how we can join this gathering wave to bring the water of life to the communities of Central Europe and the Balkans and the Biblical theology of wholistic missions. We will be sharing a very practical methodology for putting wholistic missions into action together. There will be on-site visits to four communities in the Durres-Tirana area where this wholistic missions strategy has been used effectively for more than ten years by Fida International. We will also discuss how we can partner as mission agencies, churches, denominations and para-church organizations to impact many more communities in Central Europe and the Balkans by 2020.

FAITH Gardening Manual

In 1974, to promote home gardening, the Asian Rural Life Development Foundation in Davao Del Sur, Philippines developed a simple but effective vegetable growing technology called FAITH or Food Always In The Home. A FAITH garden can produce a continuous and sufficient supply of fresh vegetables for families everyday depending on the region where they live. This guide is an attempt to develop a home garden that can provide adequate food with minimum cost, labor and land utilization. It includes: reasons to grow vegetables, steps to successfully begin and grow a garden and practices that will help in the garden.

Workshops For Short-Term Teams

We have new CHE workshops for short-term teams that are available for download: 



Members of the CHE Network have been working together to provide communities in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, and Nigeria with knowledge and strategies to help stop the spread of this dreaded disease.

In a radio interview, Kim Kargbo talks about what Women of Hope International is doing in Sierra Leone. She understands the situation on the ground, and in her interview gives important insight not being talked about much in mainstream media. In addition to public health work, Kim is working with Samaritans's Purse to provide needed supplies to two hospitals in the country. 

In Nigeria, thousands of flyers have been distributed, and information has been broadcast on radio and television to millions of people. 

The materials below, Ebola Outbreak Resources, have been developed collaboratively with input from community health professionals as well as people on the ground in the countries currently affected. They have been translated into French and are being distributed by the French Network as well.  

Please help in the fight by making these materials available to people you know who are working in affected areas.

We did our training outside on verandas or under a tree. As we taught the CHE's, others from the community also sat and listened attentively to the spiritual and physical lessons and they were coming for prayers after the lesson and to be reconciled to God.
