What We Do — Our Mission
Guidelines’ mission is based on Matthew 9:35-38:
“Jesus was going through all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every kind of sickness.Seeing the people, He felt compassion for them, because they were distressed and dispirited like sheep without a shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.””

How We Do It
Reaching people who need the Lord through radio, Internet and newsletters.
Harold Sala’s program “Guidelines—A Five-Minute Commentary on Living” is currently aired on more than 1000 stations around the world in over 15 languages.
The daily transcripts of the radio program are available by download on www.guidelines.org in audio and print in English and Spanish. Other monthly features include a ministry highlight, book resources and more. The online bookstore is available for convenient and secure ordering.
Worldwide subscribers can also receive the E-Commentaries (printed version of the radio program) from Monday to Friday, while the E-Newsletter (up-to-the-minute news on ministry) is sent monthly.
A quarterly newsletter is distributed in the US and Asia to provide an extensive report of current and future ministry around the world.
Teaching them biblical principles to live out the life of Christ through literature and specially designed seminars.
Harold and Darlene travel frequently to the Philippines, China, and Ukraine, to name a few, to train men and women for ministry all over the world. They are popular speakers to singles, couples, parents, pastors, men’s and women’s study groups, missionaries and business people. Some of their unique messages include Making Your Emotions Work for You, Winning Your Inner Struggles, Created for a Purpose and Confidence in the Bible.
Harold also enjoys preaching invitations some Sundays in the US and overseas.
The Salas have authored and published over 50 books in English, most of which have been translated to Spanish, Korean, Ukrainian, Chinese, Burmese, Russian, Indonesian, Yakutian and more. The books have been an encouragement and a wonderful source of spiritual growth.
DVDs and CDs also have been produced in English and distributed worldwide, often with sub-titles or voice-overs in other languages, for use as teaching tools.
Touching needy lives to reflect faith at work as Guidelines ministers to the lonely, sick, hurting and poor.
Medical-dental missions, prison outreach and support of orphanages are some of the opportunities provided in response to the desperate needs in countries such as the Philippines, Ukraine, Myanmar, Africa and Russia.
Missionary associates who are nationals are often supported for at least three years. Guidelines believes they are more effective in reaching the locals as they know the language and do not need a large amount of allowance for cost of living.
In addition, Guidelines staff respond one-on-one to countless letters and emails from people asking for Biblical counseling, encouragement, and prayer. Every person is prayed for individually.
