Fishhook International - Ghuna Kumar 

In a word, the heart of Ghuna Kumar’s work is evangelism. Whether he is talking with the van driver or preaching in a village where there is no church, Ghuna’s number one priority is sharing the message of salvation through Jesus Christ. A close number two on Ghuna’s list is training and equipping other believers to be witnesses for Christ. His vision is that everyone whom Gospel Friends helps – from the orphans growing up at the Mt. Zion campus to the young women in the sewing training program – will become salt and light for Jesus. For more information, contact

Hispaniola Mountain Ministries

In 2005 Hispanola Mountain Ministries (HMM) was established as a non-profit organization, by Tim Dortch, Executive Director and Founder. Their purpose is to minister in the Dominican Republic and Haiti through meeting the physical needs of the communities and the emotional needs of the people. God started numerous projects through HMM that has flourished these areas and look to expand as the Lord leads. Tim's passing in May 2014 from a rare brain disorder has begun a new chapter in the HMM story. But God continues to open many doors in both the Dominican Republic and Haiti; He has allowed HMM to bless so many people through projects and mission teams. HMM’s desire is that God will continue to use this organization to bless the people of the Hispaniola Island.  Get more information from

The 25 Project

Jesus speaks of the “least of these” in Matthew 25, and says that when we care for this group of people, we actually care for Jesus Himself.

While the “least of these” comprises a broad range of people, the 25 Project is specifically focused on bringing hope and healing to orphans and vulnerable children. Compelled by the Gospel, they seek to bring hope and healing to the “least of these.” For details on The 25 Project, access For more information, contact Brian Price at or 601.853.1090 x26.
