Tony Frietas was called to missions as a general contractor, taking short-term teams to help build structures for the poor. While being of service, he felt like something was missing. Tony came to realize that the work that was being done was only a temporary solution to a long-term problem. He became aware of a strategy called “Community Health Evangelism” which changed his perspective of missions forever. He and his wife Holly moved their family to Tanzania where they began using CHE among the Maasai people. During his time on the field, he realized that properly trained short-term teams could use the CHE strategy and effectively implement CHE programs.
Tony and his wife Holly now serve with ReachGlobal and are passionate about making CHE an integral part of ReachGlobal’s DNA through the training of ReachGlobal missionaries, US churches, and their ministry partners in various locations around the world.
