Weaving Hope, Transforming Lives

Welcome to Jesus Connecting the Dots, a shining example of faith-driven compassion and a lifeline for those on the margins. Our mission is simple yet profound: to bridge the gaps in the lives of the Mangyan tribes in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines while sharing the life-transforming message of the Gospel.

Our Journey

Our story began in 2018 when Cary and Cherryl Cogdill kindled a spark of hope for the people of Mindoro. Over the years, our faith has grown, propelling us on a journey of unwavering commitment.

Our Purpose

We exist to serve, uplift, and encourage. The Mangyan tribes, indigenous residents of the rugged landscapes of Mindoro, face considerable hardships. From the absence of nutritious food, adequate shelter, and clothing to limited access to safe drinking water and education, their challenges are vast.

What We Do

Comprehensive Support

Our work extends across 27 villages and 5 schools in Mansalay, Oriental Mindoro, and Sablayan, Occidental Mindoro. We provide holistic support, addressing vital areas such as food supplementation, education support, skill development, and access to clean water.


Transformation Through Agriculture

We're not just giving fish; we're teaching how to fish. Our transformative initiatives include the development of piggeries and chicken barns integrated into the villages, providing a consistent food source and income generation opportunities.


Partnerships for Impact

We are fortunate to receive support and mentorship from organizations like Camp Barnabas and Kanakuk Ministries, whose expertise has played a vital role in our growth. Alongside Cary and Cherryl Cogdill and the family of John Tillack, our dedicated team is committed to being the hands and feet of Jesus.

Your Support Matters

By supporting our mission, you become a vital part of the change we're creating in the lives of the resilient and loving Mangyan tribes. Together, we can amplify our impact and bring about lasting transformation.
