Our Story

World-Wide Lighthouse Missions, Inc. was established in 1994

WWLM, Inc. was founded in the vision of acting as a beacon of hope to those in need within the local and world-wide community. We seek to share God’s love through hands of compassion by providing food for the hungry, clothes for the naked, education for the unlearned, ministry support and training for workers on the field, and so much more - endeavoring to make a difference, one life at a time!

Since its foundation, WWLM has provided partner support in over 20 countries - with active current partnerships that bring help and support to the needy in the U.S., Haiti, Zambia, & Peru.

 

Our Commission

WWLM’s foundation and inspiration is based on Christ’s commission found in Mark 16:15 and His call for us to act on His compassion, as found in Matthew 25:35-40.

WWLM fulfills this commission and call without discrimination to those in need within the local and world-wide community.
