WHO WE ARE

Flame of Truth (FOT) is a 501-C3 Ministry registered in the State of Texas since 1966.  Founded and directed by Melvin and Anna High, 

with Richard and Linda Hough as co-workers. 

The FOT Ministry was born to promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Reaching the lost at any cost, MInistering to the lost and hurting, to the sick and the poor with no one left behind, and assisting other fellow Missionaries on and off the mission field. There are 80 churches founded under the FOT Ministry and 13 churches under our son 

Melvin High Jr's ministry in Nicaragua and Central America.




How we serve:

  • Teach and train natives to evangelize their own people
  • Minister to the needs of the people via the gospel, food, clothes, medical supplies, and Bibles
  • Providing a home base for missionaries as well as opportunities for those desiring to experience short term mission work 
  • Providing an RV Park and dormitories where missionaries can stay while traveling in and out of Mexico, and for church groups to stay while ministering in Mexico
  • Providing medical care at a donated medical clinic and a mobile clinic for those that cannot afford health care with Dr. Reyna in Mexico
  • Managing a Food Pantry, serving the missionaries and the local needy people
  • Provide office support for the missionaries, providing a US mailing address (receive-hold-or-forward mail), and manage their banking for them in the US

born to be a missionary

Melvin High Sr. was born April 16, 1929 and married Sept. 25, 1948 to his wife Anna K Zook-High.  They arrived on the Mission Field in Mexico on January 7th of 1963, after traveling 2000 miles with 9 little missionaries, $6 in his pocket and a tank full of gas in an old rundown 1954 Ford Station Wagon with all his family's belongings in tow in a one-wheel trailer, and a faith that could move mountains.

Melvin had an 8th grade education, customary in the Mennonite/Amish faith, and went through the school of hard knocks.  He later went on to earn his GED and three Doctorate Degrees.

God gave Melvin the gift of the Spanish Language after depending on an interpreter for a long time.  He now teaches the Spanish language to others.

April 16, 2019, Melvin will be celebrating his 90th birthday.  Still going strong preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

CELEBRATED OUR 70TH ANNIVERSARY SEPTEMBER 25, 2018

 

We celebrated our 70th Anniversary with our children in Pennsylvania (PA).  They surprised us with a great party at our PA Home Church, Grace Chapel in Elizabethtown.  We are so grateful to the church for blessing us, for our children planning the celebration and the amazing family, friends and supporters that came to celebrate with us.  

We later got to celebrate our anniversary a second time with our Texas children and our Texan friends and church.  

We are most grateful to God for the 70 years that he gave us as a couple, most people do not get to spend that many years together.  God is so good!
