Building Match!

It's amazing to see how God orchestrates all the details (big and little). When we moved to the Dominican Republic in 2015, there were a total of 10 (adult) missionaries on the field. Today, we currently have 21 with 4 more arriving June 2nd! There's also a potential of 10 more joining us in the next year.  This wave of people comes just as we are tripling our preschool program this coming fall and also adding our camp program to the mix.

We are so excited that the Freedom family is growing but along with this growth, comes a need for more space! We will need a third apartment building to house our future missionaries, and you can play a part in helping us build it! 

The Lord has provided us with a $45,000 Matching Gift! 

Every dollar that's given, will be matched - bringing us to a grand total of $90,000!

This match will also help us start the building on our new mechanic building. Our mechanic is on his way! Daniel Schrock and his family will be joining the field team on June 2nd! 

We have been praying for a mechanic for a long time and we are praising God for his provision and perfect timing! A mechanic, along with a mechanic building will allow us to better maintain our growing fleet of school buses and other vehicles. 

If you are interested in donating and helping us meet our Match, simply click here! Be sure to include "Match It!" in the comments section once you have filled out the form. You have until June 15th!!

We are so grateful to have you all walking with us on this journey!

Morning Display of God's Glory

I mentioned in my last post that my phone is full of pictures of they sky. This post is proof of that! During one of my morning runs last week, God blew me away with a gorgeous display of His glory! So thankful that the Lord chooses to speak to us and reveal Himself to us in so many ways. Creation will continually point and direct us back to the Creator if we allow ourselves to step back for a moment and truly soak in greatness of our God!

For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. ~ Romans 1:20

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. ~ John 1:3

Praise the LordPraise the Lord from the heavens; praise him in the heights above. Praise him, 
all his angels; praise him, all his heavenly hosts. Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, all you 
shining stars. Praise him, you highest heavens and you waters above the skies. Let them praise the name of the Lordfor at his command they were created, and he established them for ever and ever - he issued a decree that will never pass away. ~ Psalm 148: 1-6
