An Opportunity to Give

Dear Friends,
We are in need of a new vehicle. The one we currently have is not working properly. We've put way to much money in repairs and it no longer proves to be safe or reliable for our family. Last October, our car broke down and left Jackie and the girls stranded in the middle of the road, two hours away from Santiago.

We are looking at trading in our car and have found a place that will work with us and are extremely reputable! We want to buy a Honda Pilot or a Ford Explorer. The most important quality in the car is that it has a third row in it so it will serve us well in ministry. We are also getting a car that has never been driven in the Dominican Republic. This is important for several reasons! There is a business in the D.R. of breaking the odometer and turning it back so you never know how many miles/km are really on the vehicle. Sometimes papers are forged as well. With a vehicle coming from the states we know it won't have these problems!

We are in need of about $5,000 to purchase this vehicle for our family and would like to do so in the next couple of weeks!

Will you be willing to contribute to a vehicle for our family? You can do so right on our blog! There is a giving box on the right side of our blog or you can send in a check to the G.O. Ministries Stateside Office in Louisville, KY. Simply mark "Perez, car" in the memo line!

As always, thank you so much for your continued prayers and generous support!

Much peace,
Alan and Jackie

Alan's New Role with G.O.!

Over the last 6 months Alan has been making the transition to join staff with G.O. Ministries. He has been a National Partner with G.O. for six years and has faithfully served in Sports Ministry and Facilitating Teams. He is the first National Partner to join staff!

He will now step into a larger role with greater responsibilities and serve as the Coordinator of Education for Sports Outreach. He heads up the curriculum development and teaching for the Baseball Academy reaching nearly 300 kids daily. Alan loves these kids and loves teaching them about the Word and how to become Godly men of Christ in their homes and with their future families. What an incredible opportunity he has to impact kids for the Kingdom at such a young age!

Alan will also be facilitating teams and working alongside North-American Christians who come to serve on a mission trip with G.O. Ministries. He will have the opportunity to pour into hundreds of short-term team members this year and point them towards Christ's work here on the island through G.O. Ministries!

We are thankful for the ministry and the ways in which they have developed both of our roles over the last year! It is an exciting time in ministry for us and we are so grateful to our friends, family and supporters who have faithfully prayed for us, financially supported us and encouraged us with your sweet words. We love you and are thankful for the role you play in God's plan for the island of Hispaniola!
