This ministry was started by four men who, by going on mission trips, witnessed firsthand the wonder of God working in remote areas of the world, namely one particular church in Chiang Rai, Thailand. There they saw not only that the faith of these people were great, but also that the church and community there needed help. The church was struggling to feed and provide an education for the children they were caring for.
These men were reminded that God's church is a global one and that their time and resources needed to extend far beyond their local community. Thus God gave each of them a heart to start REACTS ministries, an organization that would no longer be idle and wait for others to bring aid to children in need, but one that would and could react immediately in love through actions and truth to do whatever possible to further God's love and blessings to those children.
The name REACTS was decided upon after looking into the Bible and reading about the fellowship of believers in Acts 2 as well as 1 John 3:16-18. John states that as Christians we need to love not only with words and speech but with actions and in truth. He affirms that our acts of love should be an immediate reaction and response to what we've seen from those that are in need. All too often, Christians take God's blessings and forget that we are called to be a blessing to others as well. Whether it be in regards to acts of love or reacting to people's needs, REACTS ministries is dedicated to bringing love in action rooted in God's word.
