Cien Fuegos is beginning to change. I remember the dirt roads that once dominated the barrio. We had to wash our van after each visit! Now many of those roads have pavement. Our center has electricity and running water; a treat that we could not enjoy previously. These re-modifications are great, yet they don’t reflect the heart of the community. All of this makes our work there a lot easier in a sense, yet the work continues to multiply.
One of our moms recently gave birth to baby #5. She doesn’t know the father’s name because he was just another trick. The sad reality that the children of our center face each day is too much for many of us to bear. One of our dreams is to build a home on the property we wish to own in hopes to provide a safe place for some of these children.
Do you remember Carlitos? After such a great response from God, His mom brought him back to his grandmother. This only means that he is once again living with people who are not giving him the nurture and care he needs. These are real stories! This precious child could have a safe and loving home if we could purchase this property.
Please join us as we endeavor to bring a true heart transformation to the Dominican Republic by purchasing 8 acres of land in the mountains. Our time is running out. If we don’t purchase the land by the end of December, the deal is off. Remember, 8 acres of land with fruit trees, rivers and a four bedroom home for only $110,000. We are still $70,000 away from our goal.
This property will be a safe home for children like Carlitos and the five children who don’t know their dad’s names.
Together, we can Help Others Pursue Eternity in the Dominican Republic.
