About Apple of His Eye Charity

Caring for the Orphans and Widows, the Poor and Forgotten.

Our vision is to advance God’s kingdom by equipping the most vulnerable with the tools and opportunities to break the cycle of poverty through our mission abroad.


Our Values



We are moved with compassion to help those in desperate need.
Matthew 9:36



AHEC was built on the foundation of prayer, which continues to be the driving force behind all we do.
Philippians 4:6-7



We strive to honor the Lord by going wherever He calls us and loving and serving the people He places front of us.
Romans 12:9-13

Our Mission

Our Mission is to bring hope and help to orphans, widows, the poor, and the forgotten in developing nations.

Our Beliefs

We believe: 

  • The Bible, (both Old and New Testaments) to be the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

  • That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death for our sins through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

  • That each person who by faith receives Jesus as personal Savior is justified on the basis of Christ's shed blood on Calvary and is born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby becomes a child of God.

  • In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by Whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a transformed, godly life.

  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

  • In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

  • God’s heart is for the orphan and widow, poor and forgotten. God is using AHEC to show His love and compassion to the most vulnerable (James 1:27)

  • Prayer changes things!  Our prayer is that God will use AHEC to help bring His Kingdom to a lost and dying world and that entire nations will be transformed.

  • The Great Commission is our calling: ‘Go out and make disciples in all the nations’. (Matthew 28:19)

Our Story

In 2006, our Founder TJ Saling Caldwell went on a mission trip to India with her local church. TJ witnessed the extreme poverty that orphaned children and widows were enduring and returned to the states with a burden on her heart to do more. Through this mission trip, TJ developed beautiful relationships with two local pastors, which blossomed into a strong partnership that has continued to deepen and grow over the last decade.
