The Founder of Asian Mission Outreach Foundation, Bishop Ariel and Ptra Maria Paz Acuña are in the full-time ministry for the past 28 years with their two children, Arielle Marie Faith and David Kasher Acuña. In the year 2000, after planting several churches and Bible schools in the Philippines (including Iwahig Prison and Penal Farm), they began to travel on short-term missions in Asia. During this 15-years of their ministry, they taught in Bible schools, led evangelistic crusades and conducted leadership conferences throughout Southeast Asia. On May 31, 2006, the family took a big step of faith and moved to Thailand as full-time missionaries. Their first ministries in Thailand were focused on pioneering Mobile Bible school and Children ministry. Moreover, God began to open doors across the whole nation of Thailand and its neighboring countries. They moved to Chiang Rai, which is in the northern part of Thailand. As they faithfully served the Lord over the span of 13 years, their vision in seeing AMO Foundation become reality was established. It was registered as a legal entity in Thailand on March 7, 2013. Its base is located in the heart of Southeast Asia.
