Ruben & Vicki and the Domiguez Family are missionaries in Cien Fuegos, Dominican Republic. This Dominican-American family boarded a plane in the summer of 2009 with a dream of helping hurting children and to plant churches in the D.R. For years since, they've been reaching communities through sports like basketball and volleyball, youth activities, summer camps, and children's programs including a mountain English school held several times a week. Their desire is to gain young people for Christ right where they are. They have established a children's center in response to the hurting and needy children that abound in the Dominican Republic. The children at our center are served a meal, educated and taught God's word during the week. Our H.O.P.E Center truly is a light in the midst of darkness. They plan to establish children's homes in the near future.
