    Why Church Planting in New England

    • The ratio of independent Christian churches in New England is 1 per 876,390 people (as compared to 1 per 50,000 people in other areas of the U.S.)

Eldon has established a Bible College there where those native to the Philippines can attend and then go out and start churches among their own people. It only takes a small amount in American dollars to support a man and his family in the Philippines, where as it would take much more for an American to take a family and live there. Mission trips are taken where Eldon recruits volunteers and they go train leaders and even build church buildings. In addition he also works with two children's homes there.
