Welcome to Allegany Region Missions
Allegany Region Missions has been organized to promote the education of underserved children in a Christian setting by supporting teachers and teaching programs, providing educational materials and supplies as requested to aid in the construction of facilities as deemed necessary for a quality educational experience. This mission will be conducted primarily internationally in underdeveloped and poverty-stricken countries. ARM will encourage people to visit these sites and provide guidance on how to make these visits through "mission trips" and other means.
ARM is currently focused on continued support of teachers at a 300+ student school in Galette, Haiti.
"The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of
the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'" Matthew 25:40
SUPPORTING DEVELOPMENT, NOT JUST RELIEF
ARM is acutely aware there is a fine line between providing relief and supporting development.
Relief offers a hand-out, and although important for immediate care, relief can also bring dependancy and steal away growth, ingenuity,
and self-survival. Development offers the chance to create/support a self-sustaining foundation in those assisted.
involving development opportunities have included construction teams working closely with local youth and adults, mentoring and teaching
skills; women being taught family nutrition and hygiene that they are able to implement at home; children being taught love and sharing
in Bible school; and teachering skills being refined and developed during teacher training programs.
ARM also desires to follow a
cooperative approach with those being assisted, in the light of cultural awareness. Those being assisted must desire to be helped, to
move beyond assistance to self-sustainment, and desire to enter into this venture cooperatively. When cooperative ministry is
undertaken, everyone benefits and the line between the helper and ones being helped becomes blurred as everyone gains knowledge and
applicable skills from each other.
