Kristin and Joselo Santana Wolford
Kristin and Joselo are our friends, partners and hosts who live Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. They work with youth, discipling and empowering teenagers and young adults to use their time and talents to love and serve others in the name of Christ.
Kristin has helped the youth of Iglesia Centro Cristiano Shalom start an after school program for children. Now, leaders from ICC Shalom travel to impoverished communities to teach Bible stories, practice reading and writing, and develop positive relationships with children and families.
The young adults from ICC Shalom are also using their talents to teach and preach on a local television program twice a week and to teach English classes to teenagers. As they teach English, they are also making new friends and sharing about Jesus.
Kristin writes: “Together, we are all learning about God’s love and the unique plans He has for each of us. The youth are growing individually and as a team. They are more missionally focused and are expanding the influence of the church. Their energy and excitement is contagious!
We believe that EVERYONE has been given gifts, talents, time and resources that they can use to make a difference in the Kingdom of God. When we work together and each of us does a little, we can have a major impact for the glory of God!”
