Eric and Adrian Martinez are a father-son duo who have been involved with
BOUNCE: Student Disaster Recovery
since the first year. As a pastor, Eric knows the value of mobilizing students for mission service.
Eric says, “With BOUNCE, you see the students desire to come back year after year. It takes a lot to get them there the first year. They’re not sure about it and they are thinking about the hard work, but once they leave, they want to come back.” Eric continues, “It’s been very important for me to see my kids learn about missions through BOUNCE.”
Adrian adds, “I love being able to help somebody and seeing the reaction on their face when they see the finished job. When they see their brand new roof, their brand new fence, their brand new siding, and everything you have done for them. The pure joy in their eyes. It’s really awesome to see that.”
Through your gifts to the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions®, BOUNCE was able to mobilize 975 participants, serving approximately 58 families in Texas and completed a total of 115 construction projects in 2019.
- Pray for the implementation of restructured ministries for BOUNCE due to Covid-19. One of those is BOUNCE Back Home Day of Service on June 27. Pray for students to "open their eyes" for opportunities to be missional in their communities.
- Pray for the churches that are participating in BOUNCE Back Home Day of Service on June 27. Ask God’s protection for the staff and students that are gathering to work and minister in their communities.
- Pray for the families that were on the list for repairs this summer that are now not able to have a group of students work on their homes. Pray that a local church will stand in the gap to minister and help with their needs.
