Dear Friends, 

If you don’t already know… your impact crosses waters and borders! We are continuing to be humbled by your continued support. 

Although this summer we were unable to host our mission teams to the Dominican Republic and Costa Rica – our teams on the ground were still blessed by support from our International Team and our donors. With continued gratitude, thank you for helping the Ministry Continue!

Watch this message of gratitude from one of our ministry partners, Russell Jerez. You may have worked alongside him in the Dominican Republic. Click here for the video.

Mercy Trip to the Dominican Republic

We are excited to plan a special Mercy Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic 
August 30 – September 3, 2020.

Our International Team is planning a trip to the DR to encourage our ministry partners and to deliver much-needed supplies that have been donated for ministry and school needs. AND YOU CAN JOIN US! If you’d like to join the mission trip, it would enable us to take more supplies to our partners. We have school supplies and backpacks for schools, equipment such as a computer for medical records, and other resources that are desperately needed. We will stay on-site at the Koinonia at IBQ (our usual location) and are limiting contacts to ministry leaders and staff, while also wearing masks. We are taking safety precautions.

Are YOU ready to join us!? Contact:

Support for Costa Rica Partners We are grateful for the generous funds we received to build a kitchen for the orphanage “Esperanza Familiar” in Costa Rica from Northside Baptist in Victoria. We are grateful for their continued support. Northside Baptist traveled with us to Costa Rica last summer, in 2019 – and had planned to return again this summer, until COVID-19 affected us all. 

We are grateful they remained committed to our newest ministry partner and location in Costa Rica.

Samuel’s Fund Child & CLEP Student ZOOM Visits
Now we are offering sponsors the opportunity to ZOOM with their Samuel’s Fund child or CLEP student. We make all of the arrangements, ensuring the sponsored child or student, a translator, and one of our Texas staff members is on the call with the sponsor at the appointed time. Our sponsors have really enjoyed this opportunity to connect and visit with them. The children and students are excited to participate too, they love seeing their sponsors! 

Training Knows No Boundaries
For 8-weeks, our DR ministry partners took the Faith & Finances class via ZOOM. Darrell Jackson, Director for the Houston area, taught the curriculum to the DR team. We are prayerful some will become certified facilitators to teach these principles to others in the DR.

In August, Amanda and Stephanie from our Corpus Christi office (both fluent in Spanish) will teach a discipleship class over ZOOM to some of our CLEP  students. This is a great resource to college students as they are becoming independent young adults – who will learn to be good stewards of their finances while honoring God with His financial blessings.

“Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!” 
Psalm 96:3 ESV

“And the gospel must first be proclaimed to all nations.” Mark 13:10 ESV
We are grateful for your commitment and trust as you invest, through STCH Ministries, in the lives of others.

God has no boundaries, no restrictions, no limits. He provides for those in need, and provides the people to carry out His Plan. We are blessed to be part of His Plan through Your Support.

Thank you for helping the Ministry Continue!
