What We are Doing Right Now
StThe Dominican Republic Student Project- 'LA CUMBRE'
This mission helps poor high school students who are not able to pay for a university education receive
a professional training as Doctors, Engineers and Architects. The program pays for all of their expenses (university expenses, books, housing, food, and transportation).
Each student receives a professional Christian mentor who meets with the student weekly to form them into future leaders with the character of Christ. While studying, the students are challenged to serve their communities and develop campus ministries within their university settings.
After graduation, the students are responsible for paying for another student from their own community and become a mentor for that student.
Students are prepared to do mission work in their communities and key unreached countries to plant churches and make fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ.
Most Dominican Students in rural towns who finished High School do not go to College or University.
Public University is almost free.
Public Universities are in the cities.
There are almost no student housing.
Most rural students find housing in the cities but are often abused (physically, emotionally and sexually)
Most rural students have no guidance in the cities
Many leaders in Dominican Republic do not deal with these problems.
There is a leadership crisis and we need more missionaries.
Provide housing where rural students could attend university in a safe environment
Provide Christian mentors to help them grow as Christian leaders
Provide leadership development in order to fill the leadership vacuum
We Our Short Term-Vision-Breath of Life International through the local church in Santiago is providing safe housing near the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo in Santiago to house students. The program began January 2012 with ten (10) students. It takes $4,200/year to provide each student room, board, tuition, food and books. Would you consider becoming part of the financial team for this project?
The Long-term Vision - Breath of Life International is planning on building a dormitory facility to house more students within the next ten years in Santiago and duplicate the efforts in two other cities : Santo Domingo and San Juan de la Maguana and other parts of the world. We are in the process of developing this project
We are training leaders to make disciples where there is the most needs. Our vision is prepare professional missionaries who will go to the unreached people in North Afrida, Middle Eash and Asia. Right now we are developing professionals who will go to Jordan, Egypt, and Pakistan.
