  • Where are the Loves?


    If you’ve visited this site over the last couple months you may have wondered where we’ve been. Have we been on vacation? Did we succumb to the heat in the Dominican? Perhaps the mosquitoes picked us up and carried us away! Well we’ve been here and have had an incredibly busy first half of 2015. […]

    Little Davey Team

    For the last year we’ve been slowly building up to a massive project, equipping 5 different computer labs at LACC schools across the Dominican. Each computer lab would see 15 new computers installed and networked, complete with the latest versions of MS Windows and Office; something no LACC school in the country had ever had. […]

    Education is one of, if not the most important factors when attempting to help children escape abject poverty. That is why we believe so strongly in Latin America ChildCare.

Gosen Last fall we received a Special Touch Ministries team that came down to the D.R. with a passion to encourage our LACC schools and the Dominican church in how to incorporate students and individuals with disabilities.

  • New Opportunities


    A funny thing happens when you do good work and get things done. You get put in charge of more. Being married to Carrie, it happens a lot, and at the beginning of the year we were asked to take on the position of Regional Coordinators for LACC. Essentially that means that we now get […]

  • A big blessing for some little kids


    While a team from International Christian Center from NY was here last fall working with one of our LACC schools, we went to a boys home we’ve gotten to know. The team spent some time ministering to them and having some good ‘ol fun. After they got back stateside, one of the pastors had a […]

    Unidos Por El

    Each year in La Vega, Dominican Republic they celebrate a festival called Carnaval. I think it would be fair to think of it as as a Dominican Mardi Gras.
