According to the Global Slavery Index, one in four of the 40.3 million slaves today are children.
Since the Dominican Republic is the most visited tourist spot in the Caribbean, it has become a known location for sex tourism. The unfortunate reality is that many of these tourists have an appetite for children.
We were recently approached by the largest anti-sex trafficking organization for children. They wanted us to take in children for them. They have done an amazing job at rescuing children and understand that rescued lives need restoration and hope. In doing their due diligence to place these children, they reached out to us.
Many know that we moved to the Dominican Republic with every intention to start a children’s home. When we leaned towards that direction, God led us to plant churches first. Church planting will always be our main focus. We need churches in order to bring true transformation in this world. Our churches provide vital resources within our communities and train leaders to work within special aspects of our ministry as well.
This is why we are sure that now is the time to begin our home for children.
Will you join us?
It is our heart’s desire to go back to that agency with a resounding, “Yes! We can house children.” We can’t do this without you.
We set aside land on HOPE Mountain for this home. Our estimated costs to build a two story home for children is $50,000.
Please join us today as we play our role in the rehabilitation of broken lives.
