The Good Shepherd Agricultural Mission was started more than 70 years ago by American Missionaries, Rev. and Maxton and Shirley Strong. The Mission is now run by Max’s son-in-law and grandson together with the help of caring individuals worldwide. We wake up each day with the same goal: Work hard to bring as much love to as many unwanted children as possible. It’s not always easy and comes with many challenges to overcome but by God’s grace, we’re doing it! Lives are being changed and stories rewritten.
Our mission is simply to provide a home for the homeless, a hope to the hopeless and to be a light for Jesus Christ in this uncertain world. We work to create disciples, not just believers; people who seek to learn, to grow and be shaped by the Master.
Our Christian values are what drive us. Our belief that God loves every child gives us the strength to persevere in the work we do even when things get tough. The majority of our staff are volunteers who place the value of our work and impact far beyond any desire for physical possessions.
