What's Happening with Freedom!

We had our first day of of the 2016-2017 school year last week! We've added 3rd grade which now brings our number of kids to 180. Please be in prayer for the teachers, kids, parents and all our staff as we invest in these kids lives!
We need interns! Interns are a huge part of our ministry and play such a vital role in the school. If you are interested or know someone who might be, please visit for more information. We know God is faithful and that He will provide!
We need a tractor! A tractor will be beneficial in maintaining the campus and will also be used for getting our buses pulled out of the mud during the rainy season. To donate, visit and put 'tractor' in the comment box. 
Footers are being dug for our next 6 classrooms! It's amazing how God continues to grow the ministry. We can't wait to fill these classrooms with kids and watch how God will work in and through their lives!


It was so good to be back in Indiana and spend 3 weeks with our family and friends, although we were cold for a good chunk of the time!  While it did feel different going back, we still feel so connected to Berne and have such a place in our hearts for the people there! I think it will always be "home" to us!

The girls were ecstatic to be reunited with their cousins. They picked up right where they left off and it was such a joy to see them together. We also got to love on two new baby cousins! The girls also enjoyed visiting old school friends and being able to reconnect with them. Today's technology allows them to stay connected but there's nothing that beats being able to see that person face to face!

While back, we also had the amazing opportunity to visit 4 churches and share what God is doing in the DR through Freedom. Our only regret about furlough is that we didn't get to see more of you while we were back! Being our first furlough, we learned a lot. So if we missed you, we are truly sorry and look forward to catching up next year!
We can't say it enough...Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support! God is doing amazing things here and it is such a blessing to have you be a part of it!
