This has been a year of lots of work not only with Haiti's situation but with our Partners here in the DR. Many needs of help have come up this year: construction of churches (fix buildings, reconstruction, 2nd. floors, etc.), STEP Program Scholarships needed in our schools of :  Colegio Bautista Peravia, Bani: Colegio Bautista El Maestro, Puerto Plata: Colegio Bautista Vida Eterna, San Cristobal: Colegio Evangelico Mahanaim, San Pedro de Macoris: Colegio Evangelico Bilingue, Santo Domingo. As you see we have many schools in Dominican Republic with thousand of students and they all need our help. With $30 dollars a month you can help a kid stay in school and be educated. Most of the children in DR go to "public schools" but still they need a uniform, school supplies, shoes, etc. and that is why I created SOS (Save Our Students Program). It is a one year scholarship program for those in public school and college students. It helps them go to school,have an education and be someone for their country. If you are interested in this program write to me at:  madelinef11@yahoo.com and I will send you the information on how to help.

Many teams from US and PR have visited us this year 2010 in Dominican Republic. Many projects have been started, others have come to an end and started new ones, and we still have many others pending for someone to help with it. Would you like to be part of these new projects of our Partners here? Write to me and lets discuss possible visits in 2011.

On July 2010 I leave to my Home Assignment year. I will go home to Puerto Rico and from there I will travel to the US and PR churches/regions that invite me to tell my stories and experiences as an IM Missionary here in the Dominican Republic. My agenda is getting full, but I still have space for you. If you want me to visit your region or church, write to me and lets coordinate a possible visit for 2010 or 2011. I will also be promoting our ABC Biennial on June 24-26, 2011 in Puerto Rico. Yes, it will be in Puerto Rico and this is something I am very proud of and I hope many baptist can come in June 2011 to visit our Island and to be at the Biennial.

Thanks for your support, and remember there is a new way of supporting us missionaries with the 360 Matching Fund until May 31,2010. If any interested in supporting me, please write to me and I will give you more details on how you can do this, or just go into "give" on the web and there you will see how to do this.

Blessings,
