During the ambassadors visit, we were received by the Governador of San Pedro de Macoris and also the vice-president of the Estrellas baseball team who presented a team jersey to the ambassador and to the president of El Salvador.
Over the past 10 years, YWAM has built over 300 Homes of Hope throughout the Dominican Republic and we were able to present to the ambassador a home built in 2015. Martin Mota, now a grandfather, shared his testimony of how receiving a home changed his and his families life from one of despair and poverty to one of hope and prosperity.
Our day finished with a visit to Laguna Prieta where in 2019/20 we built a Church and facility for Pastor Wilson Arias. YWAM Series 23 continues to support these neighborhoods through community outreaches and the ambassador had the opportunity to share some words of encouragement, help distribute a cooked lunch and meet some of the community leaders and local mayor over lunch.
