“And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children,
and the hearts of the children to their fathers.”
Truly, Abiding Fathers/Padre de Corazón is now international, expanding across Latin America and Africa, as well as parts of Western Europe. Faithful and new donor/investors, plus matching grants, allowed us to enter these countries with confidence that God is doing and will continue doing a great work in the hearts and minds of thousands of dads and families. The 2030 goal is to disciple ten million men along with 5,000 facilitators.
While Dallas is the headquarters of the ministry, Ecuador is the central base to Latin America and Rwanda to Africa. The materials have now been translated and printed in Swahili, allowing the training of pastors and key leaders in Tanzania, Kenya, So. Africa and Zambia. The Pentecostal Church of Rwanda, the largest denomination there, has engaged our facilitators to equip their top 150 leaders in 2022. The Hispanic materials are ever-expanding with wide acceptance. Romania is in the initial stage of translation and printing which may open the opportunity for Eastern Europe.
Prior to COVID, we were established in 16 Texas prisons with a goal of 5 more per year. Oklahoma has approved the curriculum along with Orange Co. Florida where classes are now being held. As with everything, we are monitoring the reopening of these facilities.
The ministry’s annual budget for 2022 is $500,000, double from 2021. Your gifts will provide materials for training in numerous venues, videography, radio programming, social media and more. Thank you and may God bless you and your family.
