Far Reaching Ministry’s ARMY of Chaplains

Our SEEDS international gift clothed and shod these heroic nationals, and gifted them with sermons and Bible passages to fill their minds with hope and direction. “Never before in the history of Far Reaching Ministries have we had a new class of chaplains funded fully for their uniforms and iPods!” After a year of training, these chaplain armies are deployed to the front lines, providing spiritual strength to the troups and protecting any women and children who need them. What a privilege to be behind them in some small way.

Willy Briscoe and Hope Leadership Foundation

Willie Briscoe and SEEDS at Hope Leadership Foundation ~ “Today’s Hope for Tomorrow’s Leaders”

We spent an afternoon with Willie Briscoe at Hope Leadership Foundation in Barrio Logan. He has taken his fatherless childhood and turned it into motivation to help youths in similar situations. Beginning with grade 3, he has constructed an after-school program that provides a safe environment, homework assistance, spiritual training, and field trips–SEEDS bought HLF a van. “We desire to help youth realize and actualize their potential by providing spiritual mentorship, educational and athletic support along with exposure to the arts, while helping them meet their most basic needs. We desire to see San Diego changed one kid at a time.”
