Dear Partners: What an incredible Christmas and New Years! I hope you and your family were blessed. I have been blessed by spending New Years and several additional days in the Dominican seeing the growth of the Crossover Cup’s work thanks to you!
Mike Williams and I had the joy last week and this week of serving with teams from around the country who are pouring their hearts into the families in each village. (If you plan on joining us for a trip, please contact our stateside office. Summer trips are almost full!)
Probably one of the highlights of my trip this week was hearing about what God is doing through our missionaries on the ground. Our phenomenal Director, Daniel Solares, and his wife Judith, shared with us about each village and how God was working. In the village of Valedor, a new bakery and sewing program will soon be starting. It’s the second bakery and sewing center. The first bakery is in Zion Village.
Daniel shared about how some of the girls are beginning to sell the bread they have learned to make at the bakery. He shared with us how they came back after their first week of selling bread and wanted to give Daniel some money. When he asked what it was for, they told him, they wanted to give their "first fruits" from their new bakery business back to God. Wow! Transformation is happening. (Did I mention we have trips for folks to come down and see what is happening?)
Thank you for your gifts that ARE making a significant difference in the lives of families here in the Dominican Republic. We pray for you in thanks and want you to know you are a blessing!
Be looking for our end of year report soon for 2019.
Blessings to you!
Jack Eason Executive Director

Join churches across the country who are helping to prevent child exploitation by becoming a VBS partner!
A simple penny drive or VBS offering helps enroll “at-risk” children into our Bible Camps and other vocational programs. When you become a VBS partner, we provide you with coloring pages, puzzles and our “Mission Moment” videos to introduce your children to missions. Each video highlights the 5 different outreaches of our mission: Disciple, Provide, Educate, Serve, Empower.
Our partnership is not to replace your curriculum but to enhance it by encouraging and challenging your children to live out missions daily in their own community.
