The organization was born as a mission to send out the founder and those who followed him to treat medical conditions and teach the Bible in the Philippines. Through the years, ABWE has grown to over 900 career missionaries serving in more than 75 nations around the world. This large missionary family is supported by a network of approximately 4,200 partner organizations throughout the United States and Canada.
