Fall Update 2021
Our trip to the states

Dear friends and family,

Greetings from the Caribbean! We are back in the DR after a great trip to the states this summer.  We were so grateful to be able to spend time with our family and friends, visit some of our supporting churches, meet with our individual supporters, and do some fundraising.  After having to postpone the trip several times due the pandemic, we were so thankful that everything went smoothly and that we were able to have such a productive trip.

Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to visit with us and talk to us about our ministry.  If you did not see us while we were in the states and would like to hear about our ministry and our fundraising goals, please reply to this email and we can definitely set up a Zoom call.  We would love to talk to you.

Back in the DR

We started right back up in August with our activities with the kids.  We continue with four activities each week including a teen group and our numbers continue to grow.  So many kids show up to our activities!  We are now reaching almost 150 kids each week.  Praise the Lord! We are also continuing in our food ministry and weekly food deliveries to the community.

As you may remember, we have the goal for this year of renting a space for a ministry office in the heart of the community we serve.  We have a couple of leads on possible places, so please continue to be in prayer about that. 

Thank you so much for your interest in our ministry and for your prayers and your support.  We are truly grateful.
                                                                                           Dios les bendiga,
                                                                                           Eddy and Carrie Ramos
