Establishing a Legacy to Create a Center of Family Restoration
A funding opportunity for ministry expansion.
Even before the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been praying and waiting on the Lord for his guidance on how to grow our ministry here in the Dominican Republic. With a combination of 25 years of missions and Christian experience between them, Malcolm and Yanet Taylor, founded YWAM Series 23 in response to a call from God for the people of San Pedro de Macorís. That call is to bring restoration and the love of Christ through mission service with a focus on ministering to couples and families.
Since 2017, the ministry has been operating from the Taylor family home. While this has had its benefits, it also presents challenges. It is not ideal to take couples with problems to receive counseling to a family home with small children present, with Covid-19 it is not advisable to have many people in our home since space is limited, especially to record videos.
Covid-19 has generated many uncertainties, the need for this type of ministry has also grown. Today more than ever, couples need counseling, parents need counseling, adolescents need teaching about purity, young couples need premarital counseling, and so on. At the local level, we are beginning to see a return to normalcy, and we believe that this is the right time to seek to expand our ministry, using appropriate distancing measures and new methods.
Our vision is to have a Center of Family Restoration in the city center where we can have classrooms for our different courses (marriage courses, premarital courses, parenting courses, etc.), counseling rooms, a television studio for production of video materials and live programming, ministry office and be a future facility where we can receive visiting teams.
We ask that you consider praying for this initiative:
Rent a property with two years of operating expenses.
Purchases of essential equipment to operate.
Purchase of a permanent property.
Renovations of property for our long term use
Through your support, we can:
Equip our local volunteers through teaching and service opportunities.
Houses of Hope: construction of houses for families in need using local volunteers or visitor teams.
Counseling services - to counsel troubled teens, singles, and couples.
Conferences: to be able to hold annual conferences with approaches ranging from missions, evangelism, family, parenting and marriages.
Seminars and courses: to be able to take courses on marriage and parenthood
Ministry: to be able to coordinate and facilitate weekly and monthly ministry opportunities in local communities.
Television and media: have a fully equipped television and media studio to produce live and recorded programs.
