Founder

Dr. Vincent Rosini

Dr. Rosini’s first visit to a third world country was to Nicaragua in the summer of 1991. Soon after, he became the Missions Director of Spring Branch Community Church and began leading short-term teams to Nicaragua and Ukraine.

According to Dr. Rosini “The first-hand contact with the children and orphanage staff I met changed the trajectory of my life and work. The suffering that some endure defies description. At times I can become overwhelmed by the needs of the global poor. I began Frontier Horizon in 2003 to expand my capacity to serve vulnerable populations. Frontier Horizon’s mission is to bridge the gap between vulnerable people and those in a position to help. Through our hosting program we make it possible for disadvantage children to come to the US and Canada. These experiences open a world of opportunity for the kids we serve. Our International Impact Trips have proven to be deeply transformative. These close encounters with impoverished and vulnerable children reorient the mindset of North Americans towards the needs of the poor. We supply food, clothing, medical care, and educational support for those in need. Alleviating some of the suffering endured by the poor is the hope and dream behind Frontier Horizon.”

Frontier Horizon is founded on the basic Judeo-Christian tenets of love and compassion. We take seriously the apostle Paul’s admonishment that the only thing that really matters is “faith expressing itself through love” (Galatians 5:6). Our paramount goal is to imitate Christ’s unconditional love towards others and show how actions speak louder than words ever could.

Executive Director

Tom Sasser

My wife Debbie and I are the proud parents of 3 amazing kids. We live in central California and enjoy the many amazing outdoor activities the area provides. Life, as it does for most of us, has come with exhilarating wins and some devastating losses. These experiences have shaped in us a great appreciation of what we like to call, the supreme virtue – compassion. It is our hope that our lives and work will extend the transforming power of compassion in everyone we encounter.

I have had the privilege of serving many amazing mission driven organizations. I love helping teams thrive and organizations realize their potential. Every organization makes implicit and explicit promises regarding their products and services every day. I believe it is imperative that one keep those promises. Work is a privilege, those we serve are our highest priority and exceeding expectations is very rewarding.

What I like about working at Frontier Horizon

The team at Frontier Horizon personifies its mission. I am inspired every day by our team & family partners. We have a lot of fun doing good together. Helping orphans find their way home is an absolute privilege!


Director of Digital Communications

Natasha Saunders

I’ve always loved the powerful way in which words can conjure images and feelings in your mind. My experience as a journalist opened up my eyes to marketing those words and images. The digital world is ever changing and I’m continuously studying and keeping up on the latest media strategies and trends. My philosophy is that good brand management and online presence drives business growth and company value.

I have a Diploma in Public Relations from University of Toronto. I also studied Journalism at University of British Columbia. I’ve worked on marketing campaigns for brands such as Mercedes-Benz, Whole Foods, Harley-Davidson, Fresita and many others.

Residing in British Columbia Canada with my husband and our three little ones, I’d love to tell you that we spend our days skiing, but it’s mostly endless diaper changes and laundry these days. We live near the beach so when we’re not in the middle of a cold Canadian winter we spend most days there, soaking up the sun while the littles eat sand and chase ducks.

What I like about working at Frontier Horizon

Being able to use my skills, talents and education to advocate for children in need just feels right. Everyone who is a part of Frontier Horizon has the exact same goal and personal passion for helping these children. To see the children I’ve advocated for get chosen for hosting and to feel a family’s love is a very rewarding feeling.

International Hosting Coordinator 

April Wareham

April has championed the cause of the orphan for over 15 years. It all started in college when she quite literally stumbled upon an orphanage/women’s shelter in Honduras that desperately needed someone to help with the children while the women went to work. After volunteering for a month, she knew she was there by no accident.

April went on to work for an adoption agency where she launched adoption, hosting and other orphan care programs in more than 15 countries in Africa, Asia, Central & South America and Eastern Europe. She then took the helm as Executive Director at Be Love Orphan Outreach Missions (BLOOM) in 2016 after having been the organization’s Hosting Program Director.Now working with Frontier Horizon, April is excited to be part of an inspiring team around the world who are dedicated to ending the orphan crisis.

She knows in her heart that she is exactly where God has called her to be in her international ministry work. April is newly married and currently lives in the Seattle, WA area with her husband (but she is still a proud native Texan). April also works to serve local vulnerable children in Washington state at the CHC Foster/Adoption Clinic Center of Excellence, which provides a trauma-minimizing medical care home for vulnerable children involved with the Washington foster care system.

International Representative

Aby Morales

I am a proud Nicaraguan, and the older sister of 3 siblings. We live with our mom in Managua where the weather is super-hot. We enjoy spending time together. Family is very important to us. We grew up in a very poor community, the same community that some of the kids of the Frontier Horizon program live. My parents were pastors of the church that Frontier Horizon works with. Life has certainly had its challenges but God has been good. Through it all my siblings and I have grown to be responsible adults who work hard to support our family. We are also deeply committed to generosity, giving of what we have to those around us that are in such desperate need. Today, my family and I have the privilege of using the opportunities that God has afforded us through Frontier Horizon to serve others in our community.

Life has taught me to be grateful. I strive each day to be an agent of kindness, generosity, and compassion. I feel blessed each day to be part of Frontier Horizon´s team. I know that I am making a difference in the country that I love so much. People have invested in me and now I get to invest in others. I truly believe that I am part of God’s plan to be an agent of change.

What I like about working at Frontier Horizon

What I like the most is the teamwork. The team values my opinion, and as the youngest team member, they have been faithful to guide me in my journey to realize my full potential. Dr. Rosini believed in me when I was just 17 years old. He motivated me to learn English, of which I am now fluent. Today I am a vital part of Frontier Horizon efforts to serve vulnerable children in Nicaragua.
