"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.  He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners."

~ Isaiah 61:1

Our Vision


"To see lives transformed through a relationship with Christ, to become 'Wells of Hope' living for the glory of God" 


Amaziba Gamatsiko ~ "Wells of Hope"

You know the old saying, "What is down in the well, comes up in the bucket" 

This is also true for our lives.  We desire to be "wells of hope" to everyone we come into contact with.  We want to share the hope that is within us, that is Jesus Christ, so that each one will also become a "well of hope."   As we plant seeds of love and hope deep within, they will overflow and spread hope to others.  Our vision of transforming lives to become "Wells of Hope" is rooted in our knowledge of and intimate relationship with the Sovereign & All-powerful God.  We know His love knows no boundaries.  His love can overcome the darkness, depression and hopelessness that often prevails in this society. We know He is the source of life and the living water. 



Jesus said, "The water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.”    ~ John 4:14
