Education


"Thank you" she said with tears in her eyes as she gave hugs to these people who she had never met before.  This gathering of two families who had never met before in person was filled with joyful tears and so much love. The local family has two children who are being sponsored by a family who have come from North America to Pedregal to meet them.  The gratitude and love of both families is more than can be put into words as God is using the families to bless each in different in special and priceless ways.

Students around the Dominican Republic, US and Canada are heading into the final months of this school year.  For students in grade 12, this means a lot of hard work to pass finals and graduate with all requirements met.  In the DR, this also means that grade 8 students are working hard to prepare for their National Exams.

In our sponsorship program, we have 84 students in various schools from kindergarten through university.  This year, we will have two students who will graduate grade 12.  Both students, Maria del Carmen and Wildiania, have been working very hard this year and have maintained good grades.  The national exams count for 50% of their grade in each subject so they be working  hard to prepare for and pass these exams.

Schools will be releasing their prices and registration dates in the next couple weeks and things will get very busy for us as we reach out sponsors and work to have students registered for the coming school year.


Bringing Bible College to Jarabacoa

Profesor Bill Nyman from Prairie Bible College is coming from May 6 - 13 to teach a Biblical course on "The Four Gospels".  We are offering this to all pastors, church leaders, missionaries and anyone else who wants to participate.  Bill will be teaching for five days, six hours a day.

This is the first time we have done anything with Prairie Bible College.  The college is using this trip and course as an experiment to see how it goes.  If it is successful, then we will be talking with the president of the college about partnering.  The idea is for the college to send down professors two or three times a year and offer a seminary credited course.

We are also having our annual July conference with pastors and teachers from Teaneck, New Jersey. 


Pastor Pablo

Paul is gifted with a pastoral heart.  During our time in Canada, he has had the opportunity to take some courses from Prairie Bible College and is now receiving invitations to preach at various churches.  In February, he preached in New Jersey.  In March, Innisfail Baptist has had their "March for MIssions" month and asked us to come share.  We gave a missions report and then Paul brought the sermon.  In 10 days, Paul will preach at Trochu Baptist in Trochu AB and at the end of April, he will preach at Carbon Community Church in Carbon AB.

On April 2nd, we will be sharing about the ministry and our latest project (buying the ministry property) at Trochu Baptist's "Taste and See Mission Night".  The church is having a dinner and focusing on the missionaries that they, as a church, support.  We will be one of four missionaries sharing at this dinner.



Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock.
Luke 6v47, 48


PRAISE   &     PRAYER


  • Praise God for opportunities to share at churches about what God is doing in the mountains of the Dominican Republic.
