The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada is a missions' organization. Even before its charter early in the last century, missionaries were deployed to far away lands. Today there are more than 250 missionaries in about 50 different countries of the world sharing the love of Jesus with multiplied thousands of people! The evolution of missions has brought outstanding diversity to the ever-changing world.
Various agencies such as ERDO (Emergency Relief & Development Overseas) often partner with other relief organizations to respond to catastrophic disasters and other needs around the world. One of the other needs is ChildCARE Plus, the sponsorship initiative of ERDO. This ministry is committed to sharing Christ's love with children in need around the world. ChildCARE Plus assists children to escape the burden of poverty through access to education, nutrition, clean water and healthcare. This program is unique because each child is specifically chosen by a missionary or local administrator working in the community. These individuals are familiar with the needs of the families and the community; they know how to best meet those needs to give the child a future of hope.
