UNREACHED MISSIONS

The Philemon ProjectTHE PHILEMON PROJECT has a vision to provide very poor Lebanese, migrant, and refugee children with the best possible early childhood development preschool program, seeking to significantly narrow race- and income-based achievement gaps. Additionally, they work with parent(s) in an adult mentoring program. Another goal of the Project is to, in the words of the church father Eusebius, in his work Preparatio Evangelica, “prepare the ground for the gospel.”

OPERATION BROKEN SILENCE (OBS) is building a global Gospel movement to empower the Sudanese people through innovative programs.

HONDURAS MISSIONS

LIVING WATERS FOR THE WORLD is the global mission resource of the Synod of Living Waters (Presbyterian Church USA). Through the work of LWW and its mission partners, children are being saved from certain illness and deadly complications that come from dirty water with a water purification system. Woodland began sending mission teams in 2007 to Taulabe, Honduras. There are currently 7 water systems in use that Woodland installed. We support the local sites through clean water education and resources for maintenance.

In 2017 Woodland began sending a Medical Missions team to work with the Salt and Light Clinic in Peña Blanca. Volunteers assist the local doctor with patient intake, supplying medications and providing health education through mobile clinics in rural areas. Our construction team serves to support local missions in Peña Blanca by helping with needed repairs and new construction projects.
