Gates Of Hope Mission International, INC
Since there are no social programs in Haiti and countries we serve that provide any kind of assistance to the needy, this responsibility of assisting both widows and orphans or needy children falls on the shoulders of churches and other humanitarian organizations.
While we understand it is a virtual impossibility to solve all of the problems that surround us, nevertheless it still challenges us to at least do our part concerning those with whom we are directly involved as we work with certain congregations or churches. The leaders in these churches feel a great need as they witness the struggles of so many that are under their guidance, and they feel compelled to do something. This is also a very significant part of our testimony within the communities where we are laboring. For more information on all of our programs please visit https://hopeintl.net/

Earl and Ruth Anne Haubner have served as missionaries since moving their family to Brazil in 1969. Their ministry is based in the city of Goiânia, near the capital city of Brasilia where they have a very successful church planting and leadership training program. More than 50 churches have been started as a result of their ministry.
They base their philosophy of ministry on Mathew 28:18-20 and Ephesians 4:7-16.
“TO MAKE DISCIPLES, MAKE BETTER DISCIPLES AND YOU WILL MAKE MORE DISCIPLES.”
In 1995, their mission work expanded into the State of Amazonas, in the northern part of Brazil. “Project Amazonas: Christ, Life and Health” is the program giving emphasis to the Amazon Region. A river boat was purchased, remodeled and used almost monthly for ten day trips beginning in March, 2000. Since the year 2000, they have taken more than 150 trips on the Amazon River to visit remote villages that are only accessible by boat to spread the “Good News of Jesus Christ”. This Amazon Boat Ministry is reaching and helping people that live in villages along the many tributaries of the Amazon River. A new medical boat (CBM Amazonia) was inaugurated in January 2012. The boat is equipped with both medical and dental clinics as well as a pharmacy that has most all medications that are needed by the villagers. There are air-conditioned sleeping quarters for over 25 individuals plus an open top area for another 15 people that enjoy sleeping in (redes) hammocks. We take doctors, dentists, nurses, construction crews and evangelistic teams on almost all trips. We are providing better health and making possible a better life for these villagers as well as teaching them about Christ and planting churches. During these almost 20 years we have treated thousands of children and adults, Christ has been preached, villages and lives transformed, and churches started. There are now 25 “Project Amazon” churches in different villages and we probably have another 10 new villages right now waiting and wanting a church.
Woody Wilson has served as the president of the board of CBM for the last six years and has participated in over 25 short term mission trips on the boat in the Amazon since 2006. He and his wife, Wendy, live in Nolensville, TN near Nashville and attend Franklin Christian Church. He is a retired Emergency Medicine physician and Grandpa to Ayan and Piper. We are excited to be a part of the Northwest Schools of Mission and look forward to a great time of fellowship!

During his ministry with IRI, Jason has focused on developing strong, independently motivated disciples who can help others develop a deep understanding of and relationship with God and Christ. During this ministry, he has investigated ways to improve the power and effectiveness of discipleship ministry and develop new ways to help people grow in their understanding and relationship with God. His studies have Indicated that in order to face the challenges of our increasingly secular and ever-changing world, the Church must examine how we relate to God, and develop new ways to help people build relationships that are both individually grounded and interdependent with the rest of the body of Christ. Jason is also looking for people to partner with in developing these new approaches and programs. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Intercultural Education from the Cook School of Intercultural Studies at BIOLA University.
Secretary of Insight Resources International, inc
Dana Croxton was born in 1952 in Big Springs, Texas. His childhood however was mostly spent in Connecticut where 20% of the people in his life would be described these days as “disabled”. Dana was pressed into service as a care giver within his family at a young age out of necessity and obeyed though he was unqualified and often unwilling.
He joined the USAF shortly after High School graduation and served as a bomb loader and weapons mechanic on aircraft during the final days of the Vietnam War. Being discharged in April, 1974 he began hitch hiking back to his childhood home. During that trip God called and convicted Dana of his need for forgiveness and shortly after his return was called again in a Bible Study a call which Dana refused. This began an 18 year period of running from the Lord which ended in February of 1992 when, dying he cried to Jesus for help. Christ responded instantly and thus began a new life.
In July that year an opportunity to work in Home Health Care came and he began working as an equipment technician, and over time as a care-giver, life coach, job coach and more. Thus fulfilling God’s plan for his life that began in childhood. Beginning in 1999 he began traveling with various Christian ministries internationally. Since then Dana has worked in 27 countries (as well as the U.S.A.) on 72 international missions and dozens of domestic trips with over a dozen ministries or churches.
In 2007 the Lord Jesus moved Dana to Simi Valley, California from Helena, MT. and started Enable Ministries. A ministry devoted to teaching other believers as well as Christ honoring churches and ministries how to serve the disabled community.
He serves as an elder at Centerpoint Church of Simi Valley, CA and personally serves several families living with various disabilities in his local area.
