foreign missions

The family at Glenwood finds great importance in taking the Gospel to foreign lands. You can help support our foreign missions by being part of a Care Team, teaching with World Bible School, or going overseas on one of our Visiting Teams. Whether in Tyler or in another land, Jesus calls us to serve others in times of need.

JEFF & CHERYL CASH moved to Fort Portal Uganda in October of 1995 in obedience to the Great Commission. Their work has centered on the primary precepts of that passage including: Go, Disciple, Baptize, and Teach. They have set their hands to many different tasks including relief work in the midst of a war, orphan sponsorship, school establishment and funding, church planting, leadership training, discipleship with individuals and small groups, youth camps, aviation ministry, children’s ministry, sewing ministry, grief and trauma counseling, village church strengthening, outreach into surrounding nations (Congo and Sudan), and benevolence.

God added to their team in the precise and deliberate calling and placing of Kinley, Alex, Isaac and Silas, four servants born into circumstances of challenge and great opportunity. Entering their third decade of ministry in East Africa, the Cash family has realized an influence emerging from the aspect of consistent presence, bringing credibility and esteem among those to whom they hope to communicate love and God and relationship with Jesus.

Since 1961 EASTERN EUROPEAN MISSION (EEM) has been providing God’s Word to the people of Russia, Ukraine and Eastern Europe in their own languages. EEM provides Bibles and biblical literature in more than 20 languages to individuals, mission churches, campaign groups and other organizations related to the Church that teach God’s Word in former communist nations. EEM also provides materials to families, children in youth camps, public universities, public schools, public libraries, prisons, hospitals, orphanages and anywhere else Bibles are needed, all free to the recipients.

For more than 70 years children in Eastern Europe were sent to summer camps to learn to be model Soviet citizens. After the fall of the iron curtain, nearly one million children continued to attend these camps. In 2006, EEM received an invitation from the Ukrainian national youth camp organization to b the Bible to these children. EEM developed a program to take and teach the Bible to the children and staff of these camps. The same camps that taught communism now want the Bible.


PREDISAN is a Christian organization whose vision is to see people experience wholeness: physical, spiritual, social, economic and environmental health according to God’s redemptive plan. Men, women and children are suffering from a lack of basic healthcare, poor nutrition, preventable diseases and substance abuse, their lives restrained by lack of education and few economic opportunities. Many are living without the hope that faith in Christ provides. Predisan's solution is to be Christ’s hands and feet in partnership with community leaders, staff, donors and volunteers, facilitating health services, education, and other actions that transform lives.
