WAY Radio has joined with Crossover CUPS Mission to help a village in the Dominican Republic, specifically the mountain village of Alto de la Jagua. In February, 2021, the WAY Radio listeners in Brunswick and in Jacksonville provided the funding needed to construct a community center. The WAY Radio community center in Alto de la Jagua will provide discipleship programs, including the Boys’ Life Basketball Discipleship program. It will provide a meeting place for the 200 children in the village to learn about Jesus while being afforded the opportunity to have programs that will challenge them to avoid the traditional traps of poverty in the Dominican Republic. Too many children, without programs like ours, end up trapped in a life of abuse and exploitation. Our Boys’ Life Basketball Discipleship program empowers young men to become leaders in spreading the gospel in their communities.
YOU CAN SEE THE WORK IN PERSON! Want to see the community center as it’s being built, or plan a trip for when it’s completed? You can work with Crossover CUPS Mission and visit the mountain village that WAY Radio’s listeners and staff have adopted … Alto de la Jagua.
WHAT’S NEXT? Once the community center is running, we’ll begin planning for the trade programs that will help give children an alternative to the exploitation that so many endure. Life skills like sewing and baking help the children eventually find REAL employment, while continuing to grow in their newfound faith in Christ.
JOIN US! WAY Radio in Jacksonville and in Brunswick are excited about what the future holds for the residents of Alto de la Jagua. Together we can make a difference in the Caribbean. Join us on a visit, join us in prayer, join us in support.
