Matthew 25 started as a ministry of Affirmative Evangelism Fellowship in 1979. Chapter 25 in Matthew states that when you have helped the most unfortunate in society, ‘the least of my brethren,’ you have helped God himself.

Since the this Ministry was started in 1979, we have taken on many human needs projects in the name of Christ, including:

Operation Laotian Refugees:  receiving parents and children out of refugee camps in Laos and settling them with our families in the US.

Operation Inner City: bringing city kids from the worst environments in Harlem, South Bronx, Newark, and Jersey City to our homes and school in Pine Bush, NY to experience true family living and learn about vocational and professional opportunities.

Operation African Container: supporting impoverished orphanages and schools in Kenya with food, shoes, farming equipment, and education to help alleviate starving conditions.

Graduate Missionaries Support: supporting graduates who continue to share the name of Jesus throughout the world. Currently supporting projects in Germany, Spain, New York City, Kenya and Guatemala.

Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.”   Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’    And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ - Matthew 25:34-40
