http://www.actioninternational.org/about-us/finances-accountability Action International Ministries provides ample financial records, and they are a large, successful operation. This organization has shown world-class hospitality to me, my book, and ultimately you. After having conversations with some of the missionaries and others familiar to missionary work I am sold, they do great work.
In 1961, Will Bruce along with nine other missionaries and pastors in Manila decided to form Christ for Greater Manila (CGM).
Doug & Margi Nichols began to direct CGM in 1972 during a profound expansion of programs to reach more people. Doug began, the outreach expanded to jail ministry, ministry to street children, and prostitutes, church planting among the poor, Gospel ads, evangelism, discipleship, vocational training for street children, literature work, bookstores, and opening of the Bible League.
In 2013, this genuine humanitarian effort has over 260 members from eighteen different countries, with ministries in over twenty-five countries, all of them committed to fulfilling the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ as given in Matthew 28:18-20,
18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Later on we will be reading affirmations and other responses to questions I posed to several different groups; in this excerpt, Brian Stewart provides a collection of evangelistic wisdom that Mr. Nichols wrote real-life experiences of his amazing work that touched my heart.
While writing, “How do we feed the world’s starving” I contacted Action International ministries and one of the North American directors returned my correspondence. By the time, I was deep into the manuscript I had contact with many of the upper echelon directors and dozens of missionaries stationed around the world. The broad spectrum of people and places was amazing, but the goal is a unified effort. Please take a moment and examine all they do, it is “How we feed the starving”.
