News Ministries is a Christ-centered, charitable, non-profit
organization. All of our personnel are volunteers.
We are located in Seattle, Washington. Nearly every month donations from many
sources are shipped directly to villages, orphanages and
hospitals in Romania and other third world countries.
Warm clothing and shoes, nutritional supplements to the
malnourished, non-perishable foods and groceries, medicines
(over the counter and prescription drugs), health care supplies,
toys, household supplies, blankets and sleeping bags, household
goods, and tools are given freely to the
many peasants, villagers, elderly, orphans, street children,
homeless adults and schools.
MINISTRY TURNS THIRTY YEARS OLD
Founded the first quarter of 1990
by Jerry Riess while on mission to Romania along with Pastor
Gary Van Horn and Romanian Missionary-Pastor Vladimir Caravan,
Caleb was birthed out of prompting of the Holy Spirit, visits to
shepherds in their impoverished villages, and a clear directive
from the Lord.
from Caleb's director...
Caleb has shipped
184 boxes in 2020.
412 boxes in 2019 of food, clothing, medical and school supplies
as well as household goods to The Philippines. Want to help? Join the packing party the
last Friday of each month, Caleb House, 10 AM. A good opportunity
for people who work most weekdays to participate in packing. We can always use donations of white rice, canned meats or
fish, grains, and school supplies for the children.
If you think of it while shopping, we can use bulk white rice to
send to The Philippines. Each filled coffee can of rice feeds a
family for a week. We sent over 550 cans of rice in 2019,
distributed by Pastors to poorer families!
FIVE church groups have AFFILIATED with Caleb Ministries during
May! The largest is Bethel Youth Mission of Rwanda, operated by

country, undertake evangelisms, hold training seminars to bring
youth to discipleship, work in refugee camps, and hike the entire
country spreading the Gospel! Also joining are two churches in
Kenya, one in Nepal and one in Tanzania!

where most charities will not go, they go under the freeways,
bridges, and into the woods looking for the homeless that are
not involved with the missions, shelters, and soup kitchens.
These are the homeless that indeed feel forgotten, that is until
they meet the volunteers from Light Under The Bridge. They not
only feed, clothe, and bring various supplies to the homeless,
but through the relationships Light Under The Bridge has
established with various faith based recovery homes, they are
able to offer the homeless real hope-Jesus Christ and a way off
