Our Call

Shortly after a two-week mission trip to the Philippines in 2009 Duane & Jenny Newport established Hands of Hope Ministries. It was during this visit that they felt the call of God to return to the Philippines long term. Through a series of divine encounters, they ended up in Agoo, La Union.

The purpose of Hands of Hope Ministries is twofold:

  1. Spiritually - bringing people into an encounter with God
  2. Practically - help the poor and needy

The message of the Gospel shows that the poor are valuable in the eyes of God. Our vision is to see the areas in which we work transformed to God's Kingdom values in all aspects and at all levels of society, bringing freedom and healing to people living in poverty.

We are now in to our 8thyear are blown away with the generosity and support of so many. It has enabled us to build a full elementary school (Click Here for more info), plant churches, raise leaders, run seminars, sponsor high school and college students and buy extra land to secure the ministry for many generations us to come.   

More recently Duane and Jenny have also partnered with their youth pastor and established a work in the mountains of Mindanao.
