Dominican Republic

Of Beaches and Baseball

It was Tim's Schulte's secret dream to play baseball with Dominicans—some of the best baseball players in the world. But he didn't consider that desire when looking for a trip to take his son on. "More than anything, we wanted to do a mission trip together," he says.

Tears begin to flow as Danielle Thayer relives one of the most powerful moments in her life. A few months before, she and her husband Bob had stepped out in faith and decided to sponsor a child in the Dominican Republic named Danilo. 

Danilo Finds Peace in Chaos and Tragedy, Thanks to You

Danilo never knew his father.  He abandoned the family when Danilo, now 15, was just a baby.  Danilo and his three older sisters were raised by their mother, who sold charcoal on the streets to support them.  Her earnings were never quite enough to feed the whole family, and the children often went to bed hungry. 

Forty-Day Fast Helps Partners Identify with Children

Pastor Brent James was looking for a way to reinvigorate Peninsula Bible Fellowship’s (PBF) relationship with Children of the Nations (COTN) when he stumbled across the book, A Place by the Table, by Chris Seay. The book and devotional series leads individuals or groups through a forty-day solidarity fast with the poor.  This fast pares down the typical American diet to the basics—some of the only foods available to people in impoverished countries.  Brent saw it as a tangible way for his congregation to identify with the children they serve through COTN.
