Harvest Hands Ministries is a conservative, non-denominational ministry upholding traditional Biblical values. We are a 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization founded by Garry and Terese Mathewson in August 1999. They have served as missionaries to Mexico since 1997. The ministry headquarters is presently located in Westfield,  NY.

Since its inception, Harvest Hands Ministries has sought to share God’s love by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of the hungry and oppressed people in the Juarez area. This is done through a Christian children's home, pastoral support, church services, food distribution, student sponsorship and school supplies. In addition, Harvest Hands has supported local churches with Sunday school materials,  and Vacation Bible School programs. 

Resplandor De Vida is a home to 23 needy and impoverished children. It was opened in 2010.
