  • ZOE Empowers

    A Ministry with orphans in India

    Through the ministry ZOE Empowers, Lake Deaton sponsors 3 Empowerment Groups in Vizag, India. First, Shining Stars includes about 85 children from ages 12-20 divided into 32 households with many younger children living with them. Then, we also co-sponsor two other Empowerment Groups: Unbeatables with Community U.M. Church, and Life Creators with Tuscawilla U.M. Church. 

    Zoe reaches out in love to orphans and all vulnerable children and those wishing to partner with them, regardless of their belief, so they may experience the love of God with physical, social, psychological, and spiritual healing. Self-sustainability is a primary goal for ZOE , “helping children never need charity again.”

  • Partners in Mission with the Evangelical

    Methodist Church of Argentina  

    Lake Deaton is committed to developing a relationship with a cluster (4-6 local churches) in Buenos Aires where both the churches in Buenos Aires and Lake Deaton would benefit from this partnership. Project goals include assisting these local churches with immediate needs, such as evangelism and leadership development. While we are not able to do a mission trip at this time, we are committed to support our brothers and sisters in Argentina through our love and prayers.
