Our singular focus is to listen and to respond to needs. Close relationships with partners gives us unique insight and firsthand knowledge of the needs. Our focus on listening and responding to the needs of the churches, whatever they may be, allows us to act with flexibly and agility.
We draw inspirations from 1 Kings 19 and our personal contacts thru the years in the Caribbean, Central and South America region. An intimate knowledge of the region indicates to us that there are many churches, and church leaders, in the Caribbean, Central and South America region that, like Elijah, may be weary and fatigued. They have been in battle and feel their provisions are running low and there is nowhere in sight to get resupplied. Furthermore, we are inspired by the role of the angels that, as obedient messengers of God, brought, just in time, life sustaining supplies to an exhausted Elijah. Just as the messengers, (angels), provided God's relief to Elijah twice, Caribe channels two types of assistance: in Phase I we provide needed supplies for the sustaining of the church; in Phase II we provide supplies for the continuing work of outreach and evangelism.
