Summer Mission Trip 2015 -1IMG_9749

Our foundation, Grace International Outreach, was established for a very specific mission in the Dominican Republic. We have officially received our paperwork from the government, officially establishing our foundation in this 3rd world country and it could not have come at a better time.

This is our 3rd trip in just 7 months. We have been here in the D.R. for just two days and we have been working tirelessly to get the specifics of our new program down in writing, complete with very specific details about how our very special program will change the lives of children all over this country.

We are breaking new ground, forming a program like this country has never before seen. Today we spent time with our ministry partner discussing the specifics about this revolutionary new program that we will be implementing in the very near future. By the grace of God, we WILL change the lives of children who have previously had no hope for a life other than poverty, drugs and prostitution.

We have a building in which to house our first center. We have a program director, pastor and counselor. We are making progress. In order to get our program into full swing, serving the children in this rural area, we (of course) will need funding. While we believe we can eventually receive some support from the government, we must first prove ourselves and the ability of our program to succeed.

This is where you come in. We need $1500 per month to tutor and mentor children from Kindergarten through high school. Our program consists of 4 tiers that will serve children in this wide age range (K-12). They will receive help with their school work, spiritual guidance and take part in bible study 5-6 days a week. The older children (high school age) will have the opportunity to participate in tutoring and mentoring but also to take part in a scholarship program that will provide valuable skills so that they can join the workforce.

The only chance we have to bring change to the current path awaiting these children is to bring HOPE into a drab, depressing place. A place where no hope for a better life has existed. This program will not only provide children with the chance for a decent life in which they can support themselves, but also save many from the likely possibility of a life enslaved in the sex trafficking industry.

“If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” -James 2:15-17
