A LOCAL COMMUNITY WITH A GLOBAL HUMANITARIAN VISION!
"Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed."
Psalm 41:1-3 (NKJV)
History & Legacy
The vision for International Outreach Mission began when our founder, Bella Lamm, responded to God’s call to serve the homeless in Jacksonville, Florida. Bella began her outreach ministry in 2014 with very minimal help and support, and has been faithfully serving the homeless, the poor, the destitute single mothers, the overlooked, the rejected, the orphans, the elderly, the handicapped – and many others in need of friendship and affection. What began on the streets of Jacksonville is now a legacy that will carry on for generations!
Bella’s heart for the poor and the lost is so profound that the only way it can be described is a special mantle and anointing that has been placed on her by God! Watching her sacrificial life and the way she honors people around her has been a great inspiration to many who have taken the time to get to know her.
In 2018, Bella's outreach team began to form when Neil and Neolla Hanekom responded to God’s prompting to sponsor her and help oversee the monthly homeless outreaches in downtown Jacksonville. Bella is now surrounded by a group of of those who have captured her vision for helping the poor and are passionate about serving God with their unique gifts and callings!
Bella’s outreach ministry evolved into International Outreach Mission, Inc. – a nonprofit organization with a global humanitarian vision.
Our mission locally is to continue serving our community by providing resource to the poor.
Internationally, we are supporting ministries in Ukraine who are working diligently in meeting the needs of their communities and refugees from neighboring regions.
