God has been bringing more and more kids to come to hear a Bible lesson, play games, and eat a snack.  Soccer programs and tournaments are also being used as evangelism and discipleship opportunities. God has been faithful, and we are praying for volunteers to help us in the work as it is already growing a lot.

First Love International

We are a non-denominational mission agency founded for the purpose of bringing love and hope to un-reached people residing in impoverished regions of the world.



At First Love we seek to “flesh out” the passion of Christ before a lost and dying world. In our ministries we have deliberately chosen to major on those whom the world might consider to be the minors.  And in that regard... our priority is to invest our greatest resources and energies on the least, because we recognize that whenever we reach out to the least of these, we do it for Jesus.


I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers or sisters of mine, you did for me...Jesus.

Matthew 25:40
