A letter from Mike Williams…
Greetings from the Dominican Republic where the feels-like temperature is 140! We are about midway through a beautiful summer of discipleship. We are seeing children and teens make good choices for Christ. Six weeks of Bible school may seem like a lot, but these children would love for our visiting teams to be here twelve weeks! Can you be one of them next year?
Along with the weekly VBS programs, we are feeding at the garbage dump five days a week. What an excellent way to fulfill the Great Commission. We deliver the food provided by your generous partnership. We are representing you and Christ with every food truck delivery. Recently, our group prayed for a man in the dump who a year ago was our worst adversary. He was always causing problems, and now he is asking for prayer in front of all the people there! Praise the Lord for transformation.
Along with the daily dump feedings, we are going onto the streets to minister to the girls who have already been victimized by traffickers. Last week we went out on a unique night, not knowing that God had ordained our visit. A prostitute who had met us the week before came looking for us. She was going to commit suicide that night but went out looking for us for a dose of Christian hope. Usually, Wednesday is not our night on the streets, but God had other plans. We were able to get her out of her brothel-room apartment and home to her own family five hours away. A life saved for God! This great commission work happens because of your partnership. Thank you.
The Crossover Cups mission is you and me, it is Daniel and our summer staff, it is Jack and our church pastors, it is Evan, Jan, Elizabeth, Judith, Guillermo, Freddy, and so many more. This mission is all of us together doing what we can in the Name of Jesus to transform the lives of Dominican and Haitian children. Thanks for being a team player.
Live a life that is more worthy of a statue than a tombstone, -Mike Williams
PS: Yes, summer is a budget stress for any mission. Thanks for remembering us in your prayers and partnership.
