One4Another is a registered charity founded in 2012 by siblings Glenn Pascoe and Wendy Hayhoe from Cambridge and Kitchener, Ontario.
They created the organization after spending time as volunteers in Uganda knowing that they couldn’t come back to Canada without ‘doing something‘ about the great disparity of wealth that exists in the world.
[ads-quote-center cite=’Glenn Pascoe’]We’re motivated by the example of Jesus whose focus was on loving one another and in particular those experiencing poverty and children. Our faith, together with seeing the living conditions of many in Uganda, moved us to act. Witnessing their suffering prompted an ethical moment: we could either carry on and become desensitized or allow it in, to get a hold of us, and ground us in a deep sense of purpose. We’re wired to ‘feel’ into each others’ lives which is why we see a person hurt themself and we find ourselves wincing. Realizing that we had the power to alleviate the suffering of kids in Uganda not doing something would have been detrimental to our own well-being. And, while we are the one’s helping, the O4A kids give us strength to face our own struggles. So, we decided to call ourselves, One4Another, which began by facilitating operations for 6 kids in 2012 and now we’re operating on upwards of 10-15 kids per month. It’s still pretty small but due to your support we’re moving in the right direction![/ads-quote-center]

We’re committed to church planting: the establishment, growth, and maturity of the church. Practically speaking, all of our serving opportunities flow into, rest within, or flow out of the church.
For example, establishing a new church might require people who can teach national leaders, or evangelize through sports ministry, or provide a local medical clinic. These ways of serving can reach and equip future leaders and build connections in the community. Serving within the church would be church planters, assistant pastors, disciplers, teachers, and others who directly support the growth and maturity of the church. Flowing out of a healthy, growing church will be ministries that meet the needs of the community and continue to draw others to the gospel message, such as teaching English, caring for orphans, art and music outreach, or serving refugees.
The goal of our ministry is to glorify God and bring the greatest possible good to humankind through the preaching of the gospel and the establishment of biblical churches throughout the world by means of equipping and mobilizing indigenous churches and missionaries.
The HeartCry Missionary Society began in 1988 in the country of Peru with a desire to aid indigenous or native missionaries so that they might reach their own peoples and establish biblical churches among them. Since then, the Lord has expanded our borders to include not only Latin America, but also Africa, Asia, Eurasia, Europe, and the Middle East.
The goal of our ministry is to facilitate the advancement of indigenous missionaries throughout the world. Our strategy consists of four primary components: financial support, theological training, Scripture and literature distribution, and the supply of any tool necessary to facilitate the completion of the Great Commission.
We currently support approximately 238 missionary families in 41 countries around the globe.

The National T.T.T. Society is an organization of women dedicated to providing an educational camping experience for girls who might not otherwise have the opportunity. Each year, T.T.T. sends hundreds of girls who have finished the fourth grade to summer camp. The girls attend accredited, T.T.T.-approved camps that are owned and operated by qualified organizations, such as the YMCA, Girl Scouts, 4-H and church groups. Every camp must meet standards for quality in leadership, programming, health and safety. Camp programs intensify interpersonal relationships and the camp atmosphere fosters love, concern and respect for one another. This environment gives each girl an opportunity to learn of her own worth, develop initiative, learn self-expression and live in harmony with others.
