Breaking Limits With Basketball

At Fundación Educativa Bendición, we seek a personal comprehensive development of those we reach. We have managed to be the only inclusive school in Santo Domingo Oeste, in which we receive children with special needs.  We are blessed to have a team of trained psychologists who guide our staff in order to meet the needs of our students.

Not only do we work with the students at Colegio Cristiano Berea, but also I work as a volunteer coach for the Avanzada Juvenil basketball club. This has allowed me to lead many young people to Christ and get them off the streets and away from drugs.

We have been able to take drug addicts to rehabilitation centers, as in the case of Natanael. He is currently finishing his rehabilitation process and in two months, he will be entering the university to study Physical Education with a scholarship that we got him.

Thanks to sports, we have been able to get scholarships for the players in schools and universities.

A great achievement was to be able to form the basketball league of Santo Domingo Oeste, where through this the players receive payment for playing thanks to the sponsors of the event and the tickets that people pay to watch the games. In addition, other leagues can watch and hire them. Before the pandemic, our team became champions at the last tournament that was held.

It is very gratifying to know that many kids who come from very dysfunctional families, today they have come to know Christ, finish their studies, and have a home that serves as a model for others in the community. 

I thank God for his mercy and for allowing me to see how little by little things are changing and how we are transforming our community one student at the time. 

Hebrews 12:11-12

“No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees”.

Before choosing the type of leader you can read below what each one means.

These leaders with experience join us to receive supervision for their ministry or initiative from a Ministry Coordinator. They can raise support through us, and their financial accounts are accessed ten (10) percent administrative fee.

These leaders from established organizations or ministries partner with us, but their own board supervises them. They can raise support through us, and their financial accounts are accessed five (5) percent administrative fee.

Each church is independent and autonomous and must be free from interference by any ecclesiastical or political authority; that, therefore, Church and State must be kept separate as having different functions, each fulfilling its duties free from the dictation or patronage of the other.

We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for worship, work and fellowship.

We believe that to these visible churches were committed for observance “until He comes,” the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper; and that God has laid upon these churches the task of persuading a lost world to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to enthrone Him as Lord and Master. We believe that righteous living, good works and proper social concern are essential products of the gospel.

We believe, therefore, that those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior will rejoice forever in God’s presence and those who refuse to accept Christ as Lord and Savior will be forever separated from God.
We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, His high priestly intercession for His people and His personal, visible return to the world according to His promise.
