Dear Friends of our ENCUENTRO ministry,
 
God is at work in the Dominican Republic. 
 
More than 220 local pastors, youth and church leaders and their families recently attended a retreat in the Dominican Republic where Ernesto and Marina encouraged them to keep reaching their communities for Christ. 
 
 "It was a blessing for us to serve our Dominican brothers and sisters. I had the opportunity to minister in private to at least five women who needed to talk about their struggles. A young mother felt that it was God who brought her to this place. Because in every session God spoke to her and she knows now that God has a plan for her life," says Marina. 
 
Since many of the pastors don't have formal training, these retreats are a way for them to learn more about the Bible and develop messages they can preach in their churches. 
 
Many people renewed their commitment to Jesus, some accepted Him for the first time and many others came for healing. 
 
Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic; especially for the women and young girls. Many of them have few options and end up in prostitution.  
 
Thank you for your support so we can minister to those in need! 
 
You can read the report on our website and also see more  photos .




Testimonies of impacted lives:
 
Jose Guillermo  read our blog about reconciliation with God. He writes: "I have been far from God for a long time. I found this page and now I would like a genuine reconciliation with the Lord."
 
An anonymous message reads: "Thank you for today's teaching. I made peace with my dad."
 
Yamilet  from Mexico wrote to ask for our programs about abortion. She is pregnant and her boyfriend does not want her to carry the baby. But she does not want to abort and hopes that if he listens to our programs it might change his opinion.
