Welcome to GO! Ministries
This is the ministry website for David and Melanie Sgro. Currently we are planting a Church and Divinity school in the Philippines.
Philippine Church Plant!
Phase 1: Goal $2,500
We've raised $1,130.
Left to raise: $1,370!

This is a classic "Nipa Hut". Our goal is to build one that can house 32 students (8 dorm rooms of 4 students) and a Church that can seat 50 people (5 rows of 10). We need your help to raise $2,500 to build the "shell" (Phase 1: Foundation, floor, framing, exterior walls, and roof).
Phase 2 will be $2500 for electricity, interior walls, lights, ceiling fans, and 32 beds.
We will have a Short Term Mission Trip in Guatemala 5 - 12 Aug 2017. This trip will be our annual medical missions trip! We'll also be hosting our 1st Annual Martial Arts trip. Click the button for more info:

GO! Ministries started in 2010 when the Sgro family sold their full-time karate school and moved to Guatemala with 11 of their 13 children. None of us spoke Spanish. We moved with one-way tickets and 2 suit cases each. We have very little ministry-mission experience, but we know the Lord clearly called us, and that's all we needed to know. He said "GO!", so we went. Living amongst the Mayans at 6,500 feet above sea level for 3 years was an experience. Our family moved back to the US in 2013, but I continued the mission work in Guatemala by leading medical, construction, evangelism, and teen teams. I continue to visit approx every 6 weeks and we continue in our feeding program; helping widows and orphans, and showing Gods love in tangible ways. Now GO! Ministries has expanded into the Philippines where David visits and serves with Melanie, his bride since Nov 14, 2015. God is good and will never leave us nor forsake us!
