First Love International

Compassionately Surrounding the Most Vulnerable

We’re on a mission to see the unseen, give voice to the voiceless, and embrace the outcast – those that are the most vulnerable people (our MVPs) around the world.

A Global Mission

First Love International exists to compassionately surround the most vulnerable with wholistic, Jesus-saturated love to see the most vulnerable around the world become disciples of Jesus. The most vulnerable are often hidden away, voiceless, abused, and outcast. But we choose to see them, embrace them, protect and wholistically care for them. We love because Jesus first loved us.

Who We're Called to Love

We serve some of the most exploited people in the world. There are no quick fixes. No easy formulas. But with you, we can carefully come alongside them, so they can experience true healing.

Where’s The Love?

While we are narrowly focused on our MVPs (most vulnerable people), we are, we are intentionally not prescriptive as to where or who. Our singular desire is to see the most vulnerable become thriving disciples of Jesus all over the world.

Kenya

In the capital city of Nairobi and near the cost of Mobasa. First Love operates children's homes for orphaned and at-risk children/youth, providing a safe, loving environment, meals, education, and job skill training.

Honduras

First Love partners with church planters that planted a church in an impoverished community outside of Tegucigalpa. They run a feeding program and grow coffee to help financially support the ministry.

Ukraine

Near the front lines of the war with Russia and throughout the country that has been ravished by war. First Love has local partnerships with Father's House, Safe Haven Transition Home, and Next Generation School, surrounding orphaned children, elderly, widows and others most vulnerable with Jesus-saturated love through local outreach/relief work, foster homes, and meeting basic needs.

Taiwan

First Love partners with a local pregnancy support center to lovingly surround women who have unexpected pregnancies with support, information, recovery after an abortion, and a safe place to stay and heal after adoption or for new, single mothers during their first year of parenting.

Southern Asia

First Love partners with a children's home and seminary, providing basic needs and loving care to very vulnerable children and equipping college students in their pursuit of ministry as the next generation of leaders in a culture that is not embracing of Christianity.

Philippines

Boracay, Panay, and Luzon islands (where the capital, Manila, is) in the Philippines through partnerships with Faith Academy, Project Pag-Asa, Masa Ati School, Asian Theological School, Banaba House, Ina-Inakay Ministries, Bethel International School, Waray Bible Translation, Tacloban Community Church, and The Butterfly Project. First Love also operates a K-8 school in Boracay.

The Himalayas

First Love has 6 children's homes for children who are either in the process of being trafficked, in danger of becoming trafficked, or are children of prostitutes. We also have 3 college hostels, ministries to widows and seniors, and kids’ clubs, and provide relief work, church planting, evangelism, and discipleship. There are many children in the areas we serve that have disabilities. They are treated as outcasts and need a loving, supportive environment, so we are in the exploring stages of what adding this type of ministry could look like.

The United States

First Love's U.S. work includes a traveling international theology teacher, Christian sports ministry, and Christian publishing in the Philippines through our partner ministries as well as our U.S. base of operations.
