This past week Handfuls of Hope had the privilege of partnering with Timothy Christian School for their senior class mission trip! The seniors spent time praying and sharing the love of the Lord in the school, handing out food through the HOH Isaiah 58 Program, in the children's hospital, girl's orphanage and many other places. We would like to thank all of the seniors for selflessly pouring out their hearts and sharing the love of God with the people of the Dominican Republic. We are so proud of each of you! Congratulations Class of 2019! #tcsdrtrip2019

January has been a great month at the Handfuls of Hope School! After a nice break from the holidays, it was back to work. Our first Mission Trip of the year headed down to the Dominican Republic in early January where many adults and children were cared for by our amazing team. Many of which had a chance to visit with their sponsor children! Our teachers were built very much needed desks and they couldn't be happier!
On January 25th the students celebrated Juan Pablo Duarte, the Dominican Republic’s founding father. Every year his birthday and his work towards independence are honored and celebrated throughout the country.

A team of over 60 people worked tirelessly to provide healthcare and food to so many beautiful people in the remote villages. Thank you to this amazing team!

Day 2 was a great day full of God's love. The team handed out food in different villages and took the time to face paint and care for those they encountered.
Handfuls of Hope officially has a two story building in the Dominican Republic!
This coming September, at the beginning of the new school year, 3 more classrooms will be available to accommodate children and staff.
This is a win for Handfuls of Hope, the community, and every one who has ever contributed to the mission of breaking the cycle of poverty in the Dominican Republic through education and faith. Praise the Lord!
The team spent Day 5 in a village called La Rigola. It is a very poor village but it was a lovely experience. They distributed food, pampers, and clothes. They also were able to visit the village called Pica Pica.
The day ended by making 120 sandwiches for a day at the beach with the girls from the orphanage the next day.
On the fourth day of the mission trip, the team had a wonderful time with Pastor Karl's Homework Ministry.
They also delivered Manna Packs before the rain came.
The morning of day 3 included setting up for the events to come later on in the day. After the set up was completed, the team participated in face painting!
The rest of the day was full of fun activities in a fair held at the Handfuls of Hope School. At which about 175 kids from the school attended and participated in activities like water fights. The team put on puppet shows and dramas for all.
Day 2 of the Liquid High School Mission Trip 1 was amazing.
The team had great ministry opportunities through the Isaiah 58 Ministry.
Look at the images to see the team serving the Lord!

This past Saturday, April 21st, a group of doctors and nurses from Santo Domingo came to Catalina to provide follow up medical care to those in the area. These doctors and nurses are from a church called IBI in Santo Domingo. These doctors and nurses are no strangers to Handfuls of Hope since the HOH team worked along side them during the 2018 Medical Mission Trip in January. This past Saturday, their third follow up medical visit to Handfuls of Hope was a great success! 580 people were treated!
