The children love special activities like singing, puppet shows and skits.

Our staff points the families to Jesus by leading songs of praise at each monthly group meeting.
During the group meeting, each family gets a specific appointment time for receiving their supplies and receiving personal spiritual nourishment.

It's always a blessing to see fathers at the family meetings.
Some of the older children in the program happily show off their Christmas gift cards. Each child in the program receives a gift card to a local department store every Christmas from the generous contributions of sponsors.
Skits and puppet shows always capture the attention of the children.
...And usually provide a few laughs as well.

A mission team from Calvary Chapel of Delta takes a break from helping with the distribution of supplies.
During short-term mission trips, there's plenty of opportunity to interact with children in the program and in the community.

Vicente and his wife, Anyi, joyfully and faithfully serve the children on the mountain.
Spending time with sponsored children is always a highlight for those who go on short-term trips to Barahona.
