Chris & Cheryl Peters
Location: Dominican Republic
Position: Small Engine Repair, Women's & Children's Ministries
We are heading back to the Dominican Republic. We have agreed to a one year term where among other things Chris will be teaching the engine repair class again. Cheryl will also be helping out at the college with various duties.
You have likely heard the old adage “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, but, teach him to fish and he will eat for a life time”. I believe this goes further than that. They also need to have access to the pond so they have a place to fish. It is our hope that by teaching the people some basic skills for possible employment or to start their own business we are giving them the opportunity to get out of this generational poverty that they are trapped in.
We will be working with The Samaritan Foundation http://www.thesamaritanfoundationdr.com. The Samaritan Foundation is a Canadian Christian organization that has been working in the Dominican Republic for 20+ years. Along with helping the people find ways to get out of the poverty they are trapped in we are also bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. We hope to show them that through Christ they have Hope for the present and for eternity.
Currently we are in the midst of our partner search looking for prayer partners, encouragement partners, and financial partners. We have a budget set at $4500/month to cover our travel, insurance, and living costs for the year for the two of us and our daughter Jennifer. We would like to extend an invitation to you to join us in this mission. Your commitment to partner with us for $25, $50, $100 etc. per month will help to make it possible to reach these goals as a team. Would you prayerfully consider joining this team?
