    The purpose of FTWFU is to satisfy the material and spiritual needs (meeting needs and sharing Christ strategy) of migrants or agricultural workers and their families in California by recruiting volunteers (churches, individuals, and organizations) who will serve the migrants by providing groceries and materials (new clothes, backpacks, and school supplies) for the new school year with the purpose of sharing the Good News (salvation through Jesus Christ) to the glory of God.
