Church Planting/ Missions

Paul and Cloa Hede, Founders of Lydia's Treasures

With 25 years of ministry experience involving children, youth, and adults and having the privilege of introducing hundreds into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit took our passion for evangelism and led us to found Reclamation Ministries International (dba Lydia’s Treasures). We are a 501 [c] 3 non-profit organization focused primarily in assisting national Pastors around the world to plant new churches in unreached villages and neighbor hoods. Our goal is to establish new churches through door to door evangelism and evening evangelistic meetings. We also use the Jesus film, children and youth rallies, Pastor’s and women’s conferences and open air meetings. Everything we do is aimed at the goal of reaching people for Christ, establishing new churches and equipping church leaders to continue the work after we have gone home.  

Since 2001, over 5000 people have made decisions to follow Jesus and 9 new churches have been established in Romania, Kenya, Zimbabwe and the Philippines.  ALL to the glory of God! 

Our method is simple, we train national believers to share the Gospel clearly and simply and, the Holy Spirit does the rest. 

The only thing exceptional about us, aside from our 10 children and 4 grandchildren is the extraordinary God we serve!
