Help take Jesus to the nations
Jesus loves people... but they don't know it until we go and show them.
One night in Sorong, Indonesia, I stood in front of 6,000 people. I told them Jesus heals and then prayed. It seemed no one believed me until a girl [with a muslim name] quickly walked toward me. The crowd erupted with shouts of surprise and praise to God!
Everyone knew knew this girl and her tragic story. Complications with meningitis had left her bedridden and physically unable to walk for the past 8 years! But now, everyone knew Jesus was faithful and deserved all the glory.
Thousands of people called upon the name of Jesus Christ that week; declaring Him to be their Lord and Savior. And so many people were healed that the news reached the local hospital. Patients hitched a ride in ambulances to come to the meeting for an appointment with "Dr. Jesus;" the Lord, their Healer.
To top it all off, when our team was on our way to the airport, the local imams (muslim clergy) sent a representative to thank us for coming, saying "this was good for our people."
The good news of Jesus Christ is for every person, neighbor and nation.
Our family is returning to the mission field to continue this type of work, and we would be honored to have you partner with the Lord in this ministry.
Everything we have belongs to our Father in heaven.
Pray and give as you can.
You can give special gift to move us there… or give "monthly" to keep us there.
Together, we can make an eternal difference!
As we prepare to return to Asia, we remember many of the prayers we had sown there so long ago. Our hearts and faith overflow with expectation. All things are possible to those who believe. (Mark 9:23) And that kind of believing comes by knowing Jesus.
We still believe. Asia must be saved!
For those who don't know us well (yet). We have a track record. Here is a summary of our journey so far...
It is amazing to me that we have already been in ministry the past 19 years, and still we look forward to taking this next step of faith with our family + you!
Please pray along with us and help bring Jesus to the nations.
The Nations Hope is a ministry dedicated to leading as many people to Jesus Christ as possible, through as many people as possible, ...while it is still possible.
We believe in the power of the gospel to transform nations through their own people. Therefore, we utilize national teams in each country, to work and pray and see their own possibilities in God.
Mobilizing the Church
Teaching happens by doing. Churches change through action. Followers of Jesus pray, heal the sick, make disciples and share with family, friends, neighbors and nations about the faithfulness of God.
City-wide Hope Festivals
Working to unite local churches and leaders, we have seen Jesus save souls, heal the sick, and bring hope.
Euipping the Church
The joy of seeing the church confident in faith has lasting impact on local communities.
Become a Partner. Impact Nations.

Frequently asked questions
The Nations Hope, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit, incorporated in the State of Florida.
The Nations Hope is also a registered Society in Singapore. This base of operations will be revived.
Jason and Angelique will also be operating and serving as missionaries with The Foursquare Church, or "Foursquare Missions International" (FMI)
The Nations Hope has an already established network across Southeast Asia.
Jason will be hyper-focused on rebuilding The Nations Hope in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and across Southeast Asia. This includes coordinating with leaders, teaching, preaching and mobilizing the church. It is a grind that he thrives in!
Angelique excels with international communities. As the children will be involved with schooling, Angelique will likely be leading 1-on-1 Bible studies. She uses the bible to teach English and minister to the families. This has been very fruitful!
The Nations Hope is focused on evangelism. We don't get "lost in the weeds." We bring churches back to being gospel-focused, relying on the Holy Spirit and prayer. Our efforts have also brought tremendous unity to churches.
We will be making great efforts to call churches to prayer, partnership for the gospel, and bring courage to the church in areas where their courage has been failing. (this is a huge need in Asia)
Currently, we don't know! So please pray for us.
We will likely be based in Penang, Malaysia. However, we absolutely adore our many friends in Singapore and will be "anchoring" the ministry there (in Singapore).
Asia has always been on our hearts and minds. It is where the Lord is placing us and it is for what He has prepared us to do. It may be difficult to explain to some, but we have a tremendous love for the people. Angelique and Jason both know they are called to serve in this region. Their youngest child, Jeremiah was born in Singapore. Their other children were raised there from a very young age.
The Betlers have a love for Southeast Asia and the Far East, and they know this is the place the Lord has placed them to serve. They have never thought of themselves as expats. They do not go for the money or to be tourists and have a good time.
Southeast Asia is beautiful, but from a gospel, it is challenging and a lot of work! It is a quilt-work of cultures, languages, religion, and people groups. Somehow, they see Jesus at work there.
Structurally, the ministry will "anchor" itself in the region in Singapore, but the Betler family may reside elsewhere (to steward resources more effectively).
The Nations Hope will be rebuilding as we re-engage with our network in the region (with new and old friends), through prayer efforts, media (in multiple languages), City-wide Hope Festivals, partnerships and special projects that provide a Gospel witness. We are committed not only to working with leaders, but to equip and mobilize the church at large. We desire to see and confident church in Asia; strong in faith.
(We also hope to add disaster relief efforts as there is much need throughout the region; mudslides, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos, and other natural disasters are an open door which many churches would do well to serve better.)
