A Note from the President:
2016 was a year of growth and vitality for the ministry of Forward Edge—due in large part to friends like you. Consider for a moment just some of the things God accomplished through FEI in 2016:
- 4,783 children received support from FEI, including benefits like quality education, health care, spiritual training, and access to safe drinking water.
- Forward Edge teams came to the aid of dozens of disaster victims in West Virginia, Haiti, and Cuba.
- Forward Edge volunteers donated more than $675,000 worth of professional and non-professional services.
- More than 3,400 people heard a clear and compelling presentation of the gospel, with 273 getting baptized.
In 2016, we also took the first steps toward establishing a new program for vulnerable children in the nation of Cuba. Our first team to Cuba served there in December, and several more teams are scheduled for 2017.
Beyond all the stats and tangible accomplishments, though, was something far greater: the ongoing conviction that everyone involved with Forward Edge—from the thousands of children and disaster victims who benefit from our programs, to the hundreds of donors and volunteers who made these programs possible—was created by God to make a difference in this world… to live his or her mission (Eph. 2:10). It is this deeply held conviction that continues to fuel everything God does through Forward Edge, and is the very reason for our existence.
On behalf of all those who benefited from God’s work through FEI in 2016, thank you for living at least part of you mission through this ministry.
