To Dominican Republic and Beyond!
Written by Plant With Purpose on June 30, 2010 in General
Cristiana Polo Luis and her husband, Milciades Medina, have four growing children to support. Through the help of Plant With Purpose, Cristiana has seen her and her family’s lives transformed! Cristiana owns a small clothing business that has been greatly improved through Plant With Purpose. In 2005 Plant With Purpose first began helping Cristiana with a loan, and since then she has increased her income, finished building her home, and has seen her children’s lives improved immensely. Plant With Purpose also helps Basima (the community where Cristiana and Milciades live) as a whole, and has helped the community construct a new drinking water aqueduct and plant a variety of trees in reforestation efforts.
Cristiana and her family have received great benefits from Plant With Purpose materially as well as spiritually. Cristiana now prays that Plant With Purpose continues helping the community and that God strengthens her and her community spiritually. Plant With Purpose also has supplied her local church with much needed Bible study materials.
Cristiana says, “Thanks to Plant With Purpose my family is more fulfilled, I finished building my house, and my business is much larger!”
- safe travels to Santo Domingo and north into Piedra Blanca
- great group dynamic, open minds, flexibility and celebration of cultural differences
- continued growth and blessings for each of the communities we will visit: Basima, El Café, La Represa, Los Arroyones
- a growing understanding of God’s grace, love, and the work He is doing in the hearts of the Dominican staff and farmers, as well as in our own hearts as we visit.
