Rescue a child, Transform a family, Do it again tomorrow...
This is our simple mission

Great  Needs. Around the world we see educational and social injustice is rampant. Far too many children are without a good education, proper nutrition, clean water, and opportunity for advancement. Seeing these beautiful children filled with hope and promise left behind breaks our hearts, especially when help from loving Christians around the world is so very close to them. In many places hunger has become the norm. In many places contaminated water is the only water available. In many places social injustice has reduced girls to a lower class of human. Because of this many of them become entrapped by sex industry to support themselves and their family. This may seem isolated to us in North America, but is it happening to over 20 million girls every year around the world. It is happening within the reach of the Christian church, and within the reach of you and me. It is unconscionable to know that it is now 2014 and easily reachable people groups are still without the basics of human dignity.

Great Solutions. The Cups Of Cold Water Project team has decided that this bleak outlook will not be the description for our part of the Dominican Republic. Our missionary team has chosen to take a concentrated approach in the midst of a few poor mountain communities and move outward as more partners and more missionaries join us. To accomplish this task we are utilizing our own Sewing For Souls discipleship program, teaching young girls self-worth, self-esteem, life skills, sewing, cooking, craft making, and providing personal one to one discipleship. Sewing For Souls is a full program of life enrichment program. We are providing discipleship life skills for young boys though our Boy's Life athletic program. We are educating the adult community through English language classes and Family enrichment programs. Through our partnership with HumanKind Water, we are radically improving the health conditions with water purification systems. Through our partnership with Servant Heart ministries we are providing a Mother-Baby program and a pregnancy center in our community.

There is more. Each week our movie truck brings Christian evangelical films to other remote villages. Our weekly feeding ministry touches the lives of the poorest of  Haitian refugees and poor Dominicans living in sub-human conditions at the city garbage dump. Our Bible College classes are being provided in multiple communities. We have built homes, community centers, educational buildings, and churches. Our Summer street evangelism teams venture out of our villages and are now sharing the love of Jesus with the sex-trafficked girls working the streets of a neighboring tourist town. God's people are delivering a message of transformation!

These are ministries that make our communities different! It is the most sustainable method we have found to touch the lives a large number of children, and their families. With God's help, we have seen a community moved from at-risk to thriving. Our children have smiling faces for a reason! They have hope... they have future.

Great Partners. Your generous partnership touches the lives of hundreds of girls and boys, and their parents. Some of our team generously gives a Dollar-A-Day to 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 100% of your gift goes directly to the mission projects in the Dominican Republic. Every dollar of your gift is meaningful, valuable, and used in a life transforming way. Cups Of Cold Water is a sustainable program that is seeing great sustainable success!

Please become a partner with us in the life change of these girls and boys. It is 2014, social and educational injustice should not be happening any more, anywhere. Together we are making a difference here! Join us today. We have chosen PayPal as it is the safest way to support us online.

Sustainable Solutions

Many years ago, a short term visitor suggested that we give each child 200 pesos (about 5 dollars). Their group 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 sustainable mission approach 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 and adults.

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 this transforming solution.

Our mission statement is still rather simple... Rescue a child, Transform their family, Do it again tomorrow...
