Project Details

  • Project Description:

    Among a group of small islands in Southeast Asia, a community of Christian farmers are trying to resurrect their village. Forty years ago the village was destroyed by a giant wave and all the people left the village. When a new road was constructed through the area the former residents began to move back and rebuild the village.

    A newly established Impact Center runs a milk goat farm and agriculture business in the center of the village. We are also developing an eco-tourism business to capitalize on the amazing beauty of the land and sea surrounding the village. As we train farmers to combine eco-tourism and agriculture the village will be strengthened and similar Impact Centers can be started in other needy villages.

    Rebuilding a village is a challenge. OneLife supports and equips struggling farmers on One Island, helping them to escape poverty and secure the land for their future and their families. In 2015 about 150 people returned to the village to celebrate Christmas where they first came to know the Jesus. Join us as we begin to impact surrounding islands with the gospel.

    You can work with farmers and goat workers to develop the land and potential for this village.  Share expertise and experience to help maximize the land they have been blessed with.  Discover opportunities on nearby remote islands.  Look for ways to improve the physical and spiritual quality of life.  Teach English, stay with local families, and find people of peace.  Search for people who can impact these islands.  Change this nation, one island at a time.

  • Cultural Information:

    This is historically a majority Christian village, but is surrounded by a Muslim area with a variety of Islamic belief.There is also a predominately Hindu village nearby. Men should wear tasteful short sleeve shirts, and women at least three-quarter length shirts.  It is best for volunteers to wear long pants. Visitors should also bring a swimsuit and shorts. The weather is hot. There is much walking on roads, in the jungle and riding on the back of motorcycles, so you should dress appropriately. Be prepared to eat a lot of rice and fresh fish.

  • Geographic Information:

    This area is made up of eleven major inhabited islands and several smaller islands, many of which are uninhabited. This island is one of the larger ones, and has many villages on it. The farm is a half hour away from a larger city, but when on the smaller islands you will be a few hours away by boat.  There are hills and caves and the surrounding ocean is full of life, which can be viewed by diving, snorkeling, or when cliff jumping into the ocean. Upon initial entry, and prior to departure, some time will be spent in a larger city.
