1 year 4 month’s ago Hands Giving Hope started its ministry in Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic continuing its program “the Gospel Thru Sports” teaching kids baseball skills while investing in their spiritual growth. With pastor Henry at the helm he was looking for a community where we could plant a church. God answered Henry’s prayers leading him to Nuevo Amanecer an impoverished community in the outskirts of Santo Domingo. There he found a church building that was falling apart but a congregation that was strong in Spirit. The pastor of this church asked Henry if he would take over the church and through much prayer Henry agreed. Since then Hands Giving Hope has demolished the old building and in the process of building a new one. The community is very supportive of pastor Henry and grateful for our new presence in their community.
