Ed & Natasha Dickson
Ed has been a missionary to Ukraine for over 20 years. In 1996 he walked into an orphanage for children with severe disabilities, which the local people referred to as, “The place that God forgot”, and his life and ministry were changed forever.
Ed’s ministry, Loads of Love, now annually touches the lives of over 3,000 orphan children with medical operations, Christian education, humanitarian aid and amazing acts of love. Ed is also involved in church planting and pastoral training in Ukraine and travels regularly to the middle east to help Christians who are currently suffering horrendous persecution in Iraq and Syria.
The mission of Villiage of Hope Africa (VOH-A) is to bring lasting hope to children at risk so they can embrace adulthood as independent and contributing members of society. VOH-A provides education, nutrition and healthcare to children in need throughout Africa. They also provide shelter for children who have no place to live. Villiage of Hope Malawi (VOH-M) is one of eight Villages associated with VOH-A.
Ian & Tiffanie Rowley
Cambodia, Southeast Asia
Ian and Tiffanie Rowley, along with their two daughters, Emilyn and Sophia, serve as PAOC/PAONL global workers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Ian oversees Global Student Center and dorm that aims to reach university students. They engage students through their English/Chinese/Music school, along with a host of other activities that are offered at the center. With housing for 100 students in the dorm and through genuine relationship with the university students off site, many of them have come to faith and are now connected in the discipleship and Bible study classes offered, and to Global’s young adult church. Tiffanie administers the ChildCARE Plus program in Cambodia. There are currently 13 community based sites and 13 staff members that help to oversee 550+ children in the program. The program helps the child receive education, feed their families, look after their medical need and sees them through to post secondary studies…breaking the cycle of poverty. While the physical needs are met, lives are also transformed by the gospel through intentional relationship with the staff and local bodies of believers!
Ministry History: Coming to Cambodia in 2012 with their young family, the Rowley’s are excited and filled with anticipation for what God has done and what He has in store for their family and for the country of Cambodia. In the past few years, incredible growth has happened. Global Students who originally came to faith 4 years ago are now leading the church, discipleship groups and are teaching in the school. ChildCARE Plus that started with just 12 children 8 years ago is now seeing these kids graduate grade 12, pursue post-secondary studies, which will end the cycle of poverty for their families, and be connected with their local church as firm believers of faith. God has given them deep vision and they are running with it as He paves the way!
