Around the world we see educational and social injustice is rampant. Many children are without a good education, proper nutrition, clean water, or opportunity for advancement. Seeing these beautiful children in hopeless conditions 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 forced young girls and boys into enslavement by the human trafficking 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, within our reach. It is unconscionable to know that in 2014, easily reachable people groups are still without the basics of human dignity and justice.
The Cups Of Cold Water Project team has decided that this bleak outlook will not be the description of our part of the Dominican Republic. Our missionary team has chosen to take a concentrated approach in the midst of a central human trafficking area in the Dominican. 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.
More ministry happens each week as 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 finances include the support of a PRC which includes a "Healthy Mommy-Baby" program. Our Bible College classes are being provided in multiple communities. We have built homes, community centers, educational buildings, churches, and water purification systems. Our Summer street ministry teams are sharing the love of Jesus with the sex-trafficked girls working the streets of Sosua. CUPS Team members are delivering a message of transformation! They are providing sustainable Christian ministry to a local orphanage. 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. The children in our villages have smiling faces for a reason... they have hope... they have a future.
