28° North Latitude is a geographical reference for the headquarters of our business in Central Florida. The 28th parallel also crosses through Algeria, Libya, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan, India, Nepal, China, Bhutan, Myanmar, Mexico, and Morocco. The majority of the people in these countries have no access to the story of Jesus and have limited access to education, training, and employment. It is our prayer that we will have the opportunity to manufacture products from each of these countries and many others.
In addition to the geographical reference, the number 28 is very significant in our vision and drive. In Matthew 28 Jesus sends out his disciples saying “All power in heaven and on earth is given to me. So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach them to obey everything that I have taught you, and I will be with you always, even until the end of this age.” Additionally, in Acts 28:28 Paul makes the following statement in the temple “I want you to know that God has also sent his salvation to all nations, and they will listen!” Just as the disciples were sent, so are we with all confidence that He is with us and that there are ears to hear His story.
Psalm 28:8-9 The Lord is their strength, and He is the saving refuge of His anointed. Save Your people, and bless Your inheritance; Shepherd them also, and carry them forever.
