ADVENTURES IN MISSIONS
Adventures in Missions equips orphaned and vulnerable children, their families, and their communities to escape from the cycle of poverty. Our unique Community-to-Community model, and our mission to equip individuals and communities to become self-sustainable, begins with child sponsorship.
Adventures in Missions connects Christian communities with impoverished communities of orphans overseas. Through Adventures in Missions, La Croix partners with Timbutini 2 – Well of Hope CarePoint in eSwatini. The CarePoint exists to support and sustain the needs of a local church and community caring for over 200 kids, providing food, discipleship, and education assistance.
La Croix conducts an annual partner visit to the Timbutini 2 – Well of Hope CarePoint (typically in the month of July). This visit is a relational mission trip which serves to inform our church on the needs at the CarePoint and allow trip participants to participate in the daily work on the CarePoint during the week of the visit.

CHRIS AND LACHANDA ROARK
Chris and LaChanda Roark run the English center of a local Thai Church. Thailand is predominantly Buddhist and only about 0.7% Christian. Through teaching English, the Roarks share Christ’s love with the Thai people and encourage new believers to enter the church.
INTERNATIONAL COOPERATING MINISTRIES
La Croix partners with ICM , a trans-denominational, evangelical Christian ministry, who partners with indigenous ministries to equip local churches with two vital resources: a permanent church building and practical discipleship tools for oral learners. ICM works in over 120 countries, building new churches training pastors and leaders in a mini-Bible College.
JIM AND VIRGINIA VINTON
Everyone deserves a Bible they can understand. And yet millions of people are still waiting for a single word of the Bible’s life-transforming power. The Vintons have dedicated years to translating the Bible for Wycliffe Bible Translators.
JEFF & MARTHA
Jeff and Martha are located in the Balkans and work with people who have a long history of being oppressed by other people groups and only recently gained their independence. Because of this difficult history and current ethnic and religious tensions in the area, their vision is to see bridges of peace, trust, and hope in the Balkans. For more information, email Jeff and Martha.
As part of La Croix’s covenant relationship with Nicoadala UMC in Northern Mozambique, we provide support through prayer, encouragement, and finances to cover portions of ministry happening in Nicoadala and surrounding villages. La Croix teams visited to build relationships and celebrate the dedication of the new sanctuary, a building that La Croix helped fund.
NEW LIFE CHILDREN’S HOME
New Life Children’s Home provides a safe home to orphaned, abandoned and abused children. At the home, their physical, emotional and spiritual needs are met by a caring staff. Special attention is given to introducing the children to Jesus Christ and his healing love. Directors Kendon & Wendy Wheeler have served for over 25 years.
La Croix conducts an annual mission trip to New Life Children’s Home. The main focus of the week is Xtreme Camp provided to children ages 10-14 residing at New Life Children’s Home. From time to time, small work teams assist with painting or light construction.
