Cartagena Colombia, Tutoring Program

What We Do

Cartagena Colombia, Tutoring Program

After living in Cartagena for a year, we were able to really learn and discover ways in which we could help and start to make a difference.  We saw the struggles of the school system and that student to teacher ratios can easily be 35 to 1.  This makes it difficult for teachers to help those students falling behind.  Therefore, students who fall behind, don't have the resources or opportunities to catch up and they eventually drop out of school to help their families in other ways.

In 2015 we partnered with Pan de Vida to start a tutoring program in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Cartagena. After the first year, we already began to see amazing results.  And the impact continues to grow.  The tutoring program reaches up to 50 children and the staff truly invests in them and their families.  These children have a safe place to learn, grow, and people who believe in them.  They have hope.

Elkhart Indiana (USA), Breaking Out

Breaking Out is a ministry to those currently and previously incarcerated at the Elkhart County Corrections Complex in Elkhart Indiana. It aims to bring freedom from people’s internal prisons, those with bars stronger than iron, through God’s truth and a relationship with Jesus Christ. Outreach is accomplished through classes, Bible studies, and 1 on 1 discipleship. Special focus is given to the historical Gospel of Jesus and to understanding self-centered love (Eros) vs God’s unconditional love (Agape). For those relocated within the Indiana Prison system, Breaking Out keeps contact through emails, letters and phone calls to bring encouragement and continue dscipleship, since face to face meetings are highly regulated. Breaking Out also distributes Bibles, Bible study materials, permitted books to inmates involved in the ministry or upon request.
