In addition to bringing humanitarian aid and disaster relief to many places around the globe, he has brought the gospel to jungle villages, desert tribes, schools, factories, hospitals, AIDS clinics, leper colonies, open-air markets, and countless transportation hubs. All this has resulted in some alarming, hilarious, dangerous, and sensitive cross-cultural situations. His life is a witness to the provision, protection, and faithfulness of God. Over the years they have given a clear gospel witness along with food, water, sanctuary, medicine, eye glasses, and training to hundreds of thousands of people. Dr. Eyster is the founder and president of Eagle Projects International, and along with their partners, they have rescued hundreds of girls from sex trafficking, supplied doctors to the uncared for, and planted churches in the remotest areas of the world.
