Help take Jesus to the nations

You are an important part of what God is doing right now. Whether you realize it or not, the decisions you make today will determines how the Lord can use you in the future.

Our family has gone “all in” – to make the move to Southeast Asia and serve as missionaries.
We would be honored to have your support.

Your support would help get us back on the mission field.

Give one-time to move us there… or give monthly to keep us there. 

As we pray, there is a sense of urgency. This is the time to get into position and be ready. And I would say the greats days of the church are upon us.

There is a whole new world of opportunity following this pandemic. Hope is in short supply. People all over the world are more aware of the limitations of finance and government, and the frailty of life.

If we do not go to the people, who will tell them Jesus saves?

There is always a cost to steps of faith, but there is always a reward in partnering with the Lord.

Thankfully, we have lived in Southeast Asia before. Our third child was born while living in Singapore. We have loved the people and have been loved by them. We have prayed together. Wept together. Believed God together. Win or lose, we have done our best to stand in the gap, not as foreigners, but friends who love Jesus and love them.

With your help, the ministry will be able to build quickly upon our existing [and some new] connections in the region. Asia is ready for harvest… and so are we!

All hands are needed on deck! Your involvement could be critical. So we are asking those who can, to help. And those who can easily help pay; to also pray. 

We think highly of Jesus! …and He has been preparing us over the past 19 years

  • Jason & Angelique met while serving in the ministry of Reinhard Bonnke: 3 years
  • Started "The Nations Hope" - ministering across Asia: 11 years
  • Pioneer and pastor local church in San Jose, California: 5 years
  • Returning to Asia in 2021!

With God, all things are possible. Yet, we only make this possible when we go!

You and I may be “the key” to the vehicle God uses to birth this next breakthrough in Asia.

You and I will be surprised by the things God is able to do.

Please consider doing what you can, and believe with us for what is possible in God.

I would be honored for you to stand with us to bring Jesus to the nations. 

Today is the day of salvation!

-Jason Betler

The good news of Jesus changes hearts, minds, neighbors and 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.

National Leaders

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 Believers

The joy of seeing the church confident in faith has lasting impact on local communities.

Thank you for your support

Frequently asked questions

Who is involved with this effort?

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. 

What will the family be doing?

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!  

What is so unique about The Nations Hope?

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)

Where will the Betler family live?

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).  

Why does the Betler family need to go?

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. 

Why choose Southeast Asia?

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. 

How will The Nations Hope proceed?

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.)
