On the outskirts of a small town in the Hungarian countryside, there is this old castle, actually more like a manor house, where the Calvary Chapel Bible College Europe is based.
We had the opportunity to visit the accredited college and make them a promotional video for their school; they are open to all international students who are interested in studying the Bible.
Coming out of the Calvary Chapel Bible College in Hungary, A Vision For Life (AVFL) is a six-week program for 15-25 year olds to spend time and seek out what God has for their life. In the 10-plus years that the program has been in existence, there has been much success.
Take a look at the promo video we made for them to use in order to encourage more young people to join.
Based in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco, TL Made is not just another social enterprise. With the heart of bringing forth art, creativity, quality products, TL Made is crating jobs and a sustainable business in one of the hardest parts of The City.
Just in case you have not heard, The Tenderloin has myths to why it is called such, but the one that resonates is that it is the seedy underbelly of the city. It is know for drugs, prostitution, drunks, and homelessness. It’s almost as if the city cages in these hurting and broken people into this district.
But, then a light shines. And that light is SF City Impact, an organization that “exists to intervene on behalf of the people in the inner-city of SF”. Through their heart and love for the city, TL Made was born and many artists and creative people are being raised up and given purpose…and a job.
In the past few years, there has been so much talk about human and sex trafficking, great awareness has been raised on the issue, but it seems like a problem that only exists in foreign countries and that there is not much that we can do here to combat it. Do you know that the Sacramento area is one of the worst in the US for Sex Trafficking? Most of the girls that end up in these situations come from the foster care system.
For the past 16 years, The Glass Slipper has stepped into this space saying “we believe the best way to end sexual exploitation is to never let it start”. Founded by Jackie Guzman, the whole heart behind this organization is to “continue to seek innovative ways to reach and strengthen more girls” in order that these girls, who are in the foster care system, can discover their self-worth and take necessary steps towards independent living.
Completely volunteer run and operated, the Glass Slipper is based out of their hospitality house in Citrus Heights, California. Come on the walk-through that Jackie Guzman gave us of their place.

I’m not sure if you have ever heard of the Tenderloin; it’s a infamous district in San Francisco, notorious for drugs, crime, homelessness, prostitution, and truthfully, so much more. It’s controlled chaos. That’s so it doesn’t spill into the rest of the city, including many tourist attractions, like Union Square which is only a couple blocks away.
We have begun this relationship with San Francisco City Impact , an incredible organization based in the heart of the Tenderloin District. They exist to intervene on behalf of the people of San Francisco. This intervention is a physical and a spiritual one.
This is the story of Ana.
A girl from the Tenderloin.
Most Americans today have heard of Sex Trafficking. They think it is in Asia, or maybe somewhere far away. And while that is true, it also happens in sunny California.
There are countless stories like hers.
And that’s why she wants to tell it.

Haven ATL is a collaborative effort of one community coming together to work within their city, within their neighborhood with those who have been victims of prostitution and trafficking on the streets of Atlanta. Haven ATL reaches out to women and men who have no where else to turn.
Whether it is night outreaches to walk the streets, women’s support groups, gathering for a community meal, helping a victim of trafficking in the court system, or sitting and listening to someone’s lifestory, this ministry is made up of incredible people with an incredible heart to see God enter into this place and to redeem. They tell their stories more powerfully than our words can express, so please take a moment to watch and see what God is doing in Atlanta.
It was in 1987, in Sao Paulo, Brazil that COMIBAM has its origin.
The idea was simple:
Latin Americans can be an effective missionary sending force.
Over the past 25 years, this network has been at the heart uniting the different movements in 24 countries in order to complete the Great Commission that Jesus called forth.
The people of COMIBAM are spread all over the world. Their reach is far and at many times, intangible. We were able just to scrape the surface of the people involved and the impact they have. This project was filmed in 6 different countries with the help of many volunteers.
