DR Update

Bart recently visited the Dominican Republic.

Update: Wednesday we climbed to the top of the mountain to see the WAY Radio Community Center. It is almost finished and it was exciting to pray over the center and dedicate it to the Lord. Thank you so much for sponsoring children and hopefully seeing them come to Christ through the WAY Radio Community Center in the Dominican Republic.

April Update

April 2022      

Greetings Friends of Crossover Cups Mission!   I am so proud to be a part of this mission with you. It has always been a team effort, and you have been great team players. When other missionaries come to view the work they are overwhelmed with the quality of the programming and what your team has accomplished in these ten short years.   I remember the first days in the first village. We packed into that little 10′ X 20′ room with fifty kids and did our best to share Jesus with them. The heat was so intense we thought we were dying, but God was bringing life to a community. Over the years so many of you have come and sweated with our team in multiple villages. You know the summer heat too. Best of all you have not forgotten us when you returned home. Thank you for that.   Together we move forward into the next season with hope and joy. We still look at big projects like the new sewing business project with fear, but we hold onto faith. We know how this will help rescue and provide employment for so many girls currently in our program. Thank you for your prayers and support.   Now for many of you, this paragraph can be your jumping-off point. But if you have a spare minute, let me speak to you about legacy. Walt Disney is known for his generosity and love for children. He was also known in the industry as a film cutter. It did not make any difference how many hundreds of hours his animators put in on a scene, if it did not move the picture forward properly, he cut it. Snip-snip, no regrets! Once his animators worked for 240 days on a 4 1/2 minute Snow White scene… 240 days… and he cut it because it was not needed in the story. Ouch. Disney understood the message he wanted to share and made decisions based on the desired outcome. Often I need to cut things from my life that do not lead me to my desired end.   I want my life to be focused on missions of purpose. To do this I have to make choices about how I spend my time and my resources. As a Christian, everything I have comes from the Lord. I am simply a caretaker that is entrusted to grow in value for Him. How about you? We all are investors. We invest our time in mindless television or educational television, mindless literature or literature that builds us up and makes us better people. In the financial world, some of us go for high-risk investments, others for safer low-yield investments. Some of us require a guaranteed rate of return.    You all know that I am not big on asking for money. But as I get older I am thinking more about my goals in life. I am thinking more about my legacy. Not only my legacy before man but my legacy before God. Can I encourage you to make the mission you know and love a part of your will and estate planning? Can I encourage you to look into a charitable gift annuity that will pay you great dividends and help rescue little girls for the kingdom? If you want to talk about how to do that, give the Stateside office a call and set up an appointment with me personally. I am in the midst of doing a Charitable Gift Annuity myself right now. I will tell you what I know about the crazy good benefits beyond the interest and what it can do for a mission. If you have already made Crossover Cups a part of your estate planning, will, or trust, please let us know.   Mike G. Williams

Crossover Cups Update

February 16th, 2022 

A Word from Jack Eason, CUPS Executive Director:   I am humbled to think of your generosity over the last year with Crossover Cups Mission. Your faithfulness has impacted many families and change countless lives of young people on the northern coast of the Dominican republic.

It’s amazing as I walk through some of the villages, I always think about what dozens of people who have sacrificially given who make ministry in life change possible for many of these children.

I don’t know about you, but as I get older, I am reminded that only what is done for God will last. I’ve started to see a lot of the material possessions that I have as simply tools to advance God‘s kingdom and reach more people with his love. No doubt, you have a similar heart or you would not be making such an investment in the work that we are doing together.

I was the last few years, people have asked if The Crossover Cups Mission is set up to handle Legacy Giving. Some people are inquiring as they think about leaving part of their estate after they leave this earth and go to heaven. How humbling to think that people are thinking about continuing to make an impact even after they have gone on to be with Jesus!

The answer to that question is YES! We are set up to handle any kind of estate giving that you or your family might like to give to enable more children to continue to be transformed and hear about the love of Jesus. Continue reading below to find out how you can get involved.

Again, thank you for the blessing that you have already been to your ministry and the transformation that you have already been part of.   Jack Eason

December 2021 Update

Dear Crossover Cups Family, What a year it has been! Can you believe that Christmas is almost here already? We are so blessed to have the amazing team of supporters that we do. We are so thankful for each and every one of you all the time, but especially during this Christmas season!

The Unexpected

When I think of Christmas, I think of the unexpected. Who would have expected that the King of the World would be born in a dirty manger in a small town with no pomp and circumstance, just he, his parents, and a few animals? But, God delivered the Redeemer to us in an unexpected way.  When I think of how my life changed eleven years ago when I reconnected with my good friend, Mike Williams, I did not expect what would happen. Something great, a renewed friendship with a champion for children, and the merging of two hearts with a passion of ministry and people. The result? More families who are being impacted with the hope of Jesus and lives being transformed. When we, as The Crossover Cups Team, see the magnitude of what God has called us to do, we are sometimes overwhelmed. Until we are reminded that God again moves in unexpected ways. Every week, people like you are praying and giving gifts, many times they are unexpected. God often works in the unexpected. The last 18 months have been a challenge for all of us. And yet during this unexpected time, God is still working. As the Christmas season approaches, the prayer of our team for you is that God would do something unexpected in your heart this holiday season. I hope you are looking for it. Because oftentimes, He is in the unexpected. Thank you for your continued partnership that makes unexpected things happen every day!     -Executive Director, Jack Eason & The Crossover Cups Mission Team

November Dominican Republic Update

  What’s New in Our Dump Ministry?

   

How God continues to move in the Dominican Republic! With the growth of ministry in La Union Abajo and the addition of the bakery and sewing center, more impact is happening on a weekly basis in the lives of families in this Cups Village. Since La Union sits just below the dump in Sosua, most of the people that you may have seen rummaging through the garbage over the years have come from that village.    

Because of the ministry of the new bakery in La Union, more of the feeding will be happening right there in the village instead of in the garbage dump. That’s good news! Our garbage dump feeding ministry continues two days a week, but the more strategic feeding and ministry is happening in the village where the people live under the direction of Samuel and Ysemene, our Cups Missionary family who leads the ministry in that area. Thank you for your continued support that makes an impact here!

We Are Thankful for You! Thanksgiving is coming up, and while we are always thankful for our supporters, donors, and encouragers, we wanted to take this time to thank you for all your support and prayers throughout this year! Crossover CUPS is extremely blessed to have such the amazing group of supporters that they do. You are part of the reason that this mission can stay alive and keep doing the work for the Kingdom of Christ! Thank you for being a blessing to us, here at Crossover CUPS stateside, and in the Dominican Republic.
