Mission: Hope is a Christ-centered organization committed to equipping leaders and churches to bring about sustainable transformation in isolated villages. For over 20 years, we have tackled critical needs in some of the most remote areas on the planet. Led by the vision and adventurous spirit of Dr. Ben Mathes, our organization has provided medical care for millions and led thousands of people to experience new life in Jesus. Our goal today is to continue building upon our rich history. While our work has expanded beyond the river, our heart and vision remain the same: doing whatever it takes to bring hope to the hopeless.
