Inception of ABLE
In the fall of 2010 a group of four concerned citizens who had previously done numerous national and international mission trips met to discuss the possibility of developing a new non-profit organization dedicated to improving communities around the world with an emphasis on education.
This initial group incorporated ABLE and became the initial board of directors. Previous to that, one of the group while traveling in Spain, met a deacon of the church in Guadalajara, Mexico. The deacon later identified several villages in the Sierra Madre Mountains north of Guadalajara where conditions were extremely poor.
As a result, three of the initial board members joined him for a site visit to the area. They were astonished to see the conditions in which the people lived. “It was like stepping 100 years back in time.” Spring water was retrieved from an open pit and carried by burros to the village.
Women walked or rode burrows 4500 feet down a mountain to wash clothes in a creek. Children walked 2 hours home from school. Septic systems were nonexistent.
The villagers were know as ” the forgotten people at the end of the mountain road.”
Witnessing this extreme need prompted ABLE’S inception.

- International missions:
- Mexico, Bolivia, Ghana, Haiti, Kenya, Myanmar(Burma)
