MOST Ministries is a short-term Christian mission sending agency which links committed Christians seeking international opportunities to live out their faith in conjunction with missionaries and national churches throughout the world. It is our commitment to the Great Commission that compels MOST Ministries to go to all nations for the sake of the Gospel. MOST Ministries strives to address two sets of needs with each mission outreach. Projects usually involve ministering to the physical needs of a people group coupled with attending to the group’s spiritual needs through evangelization or education. Project types include Medical, Dental and Eyeglass Clinics, Women’s, Men’s and Youth Ministries, English as a Second Language, Water Filtration, Health and Hygiene Education, as well as many others.
The members of Ascension have been supporting the work of MOST Ministries for many years by collecting used eyeglasses which are given out at the eyeglass clinics. In the summer of 2009, a member of Ascension joined a MOST team on an eyeglass clinic trip to Nicaragua. The next summer (2010), 15 members of Ascension returned to Nicaragua for another eyeglass clinic. Eyeglass teams were sent to Haiti in 2011 and Paraguay in 2012. In the summer of 2013, Ascension supported a VBS, Health & Hygiene, Construction team to Guatemala, and in 2014, Ascension lead a team to teach English as a second language in Guatemala.
