Rescue a child, Transform their family, Do it again tomorrow...
This is our simple mission
The Problem. There is a tragic prevailing thought among the poorest of poor people. This tragic thought runs from the streets of Calcutta to the Islands of the Caribbean. The thought is that girls are somehow second class, and often even for sale. Because of this many of them become slaves to the sex industry to support their family. This may seem isolated to us in North America, but is it happening to over 20 million girls every year. It is hard for many to get their mind around this horribly enormous amount.
This may seem to many as being isolated to strange far away places, but it is not. A short 90 minute flight off the coast of Florida, the Dominican Republic appears to be a tropical paradise. Brochures tell of resort beaches and warm tropical waters. The brochures fail to tell is how this country has become a haven for the sexual trafficking trade. The brochures do not tell you how many poor little girls wind up the victims of this horrendous injustice. The Dominican Republic now ranks at #4 in the entire world for sex trafficking. This big Island is listed on hundreds of sex-vacation websites. Human trafficking is big business in the Dominican Republic. There are a few ways to go about combating this. Cups Of Cold Water is here to do just that.
A Great Solution. The Cups Of Cold Water Team has chosen to take a few varied approaches in the poorest communities. First, we are teaching girls self esteem and Christian life skills through the Talita Cum "Girl Arise" Discipleship program. Secondly, we are equipping
them with employment education through our Sewing For Souls education and enrichment program. Thirdly, we are transforming an entire community through education and language classes. Fourthly, through our partnership with HumanKind Water mission, we are radically improving the health conditions with free pure water.
These are approaches that work! It is the best sustainable method we have found to transform a large number of girls, boys, and their families.
There is a little more. Our street evangelism teams are sharing the love of Jesus with the trafficked girls working the streets. Our movie truck brings Christian evangelical films to remote villages. Our weekly feeding ministry touches the lives of the poorest of Dominicans and many Haitian refugees living in sub-human conditions at the city garbage dump.
An Affordable Solution. The Cups Of Cold Water mission programs touch the lives of hundreds of these girls. It is supported by wonderful generous people like yourself who join our Dollar-A-Day program and become an integral part of the success. Some prefer to make a single donation of any amount to keep the various programs funded. Cups Of Cold Water is a mission where you can know that 100% of your gift goes directly to the mission project. To accomplish this task, all of our U.S. missionaries raise their own support to serve the mission. Every dollar of your gift is meaningful, valuable, and used in a life transforming way. Cups Of Cold Water is a sustainable program that sees great success!

On a mission trip many years ago,
someone suggested that we give each child 200 pesos (about 5 dollars).
Their team could play Santa Clause to about 100 children this way. He
said, “Wouldn’t that be fun?” I explained that although it would be fun
for them, it was not good stewardship. However, if we pooled
that amount of money, we could start a small business and one family
could become self-supporting overnight. That is what we did.
This type of sustainable solution takes the financial pressure off the family and they are less likely to use their children to make money for the family. That family
is still living on that small business start up. Now add to the family a team that will disciple them in the Christian faith and you have a recipe for success. This has become the
foundation for each of our projects. Through efforts like this every one of our varied programs has come to life and is transforming the lives of children.
Cups Of Cold Water Project is creating sustainable solutions to spiritual poverty, one
child, one family, and one village at a time.
Please accept my personal invitation to be a part of this life
transforming mission. Would you ask God for permission to be a part of
our dollar-a-day team? You have my solemn promise that every dollar
placed in our care will be used to its fullest. As a supporting team member, you will know that
100% of your financial gifts and donated supplies are going to serve the
project of your choice. Thanks for being a part of the solution.
Our mission statement is simple... Rescue a child, Transform their family, Do it again tomorrow...
