The Face of Hope at Santo Domingo East

Lucas* was brought to our school because he faced difficult circumstances at home. His single mother was forced to leave Venezuela due to political persecution and is trying to survive as a refugee in Dominican Republic. She works long hours trying to provide for her family’s needs, often leaving Lucas with friends or neighbors so he won’t be alone while she’s gone. It’s been a blessing for him to be part of our school, where he is receiving a solid, Christ-centered education, healthy food, and the attention he needs as he grows.

We are thrilled to watch as Lucas thrives at Santo Domingo East. He has fully embraced both academic learning and the lessons about Jesus. After a recent discipleship program, he went home and explained one of the lessons to a caregiver, or “tia.” He told her about how Christ died on the cross for each of us, and she became so interested that she asked to borrow his Bible so she could read more about it. In addition to growing in spiritual knowledge, Lucas enjoys playing on our school’s soccer team. We trust that God is at work in his life, and we are excited to see what’s in store for his future!
