Ministry Update: Fountain of Life Christian School (Dominican Republic)

Dr. Rick Horne, Oakseed Ministry Liaison to Africa and the Dominican Republic, visited Fountain of Life Christian School in the Dominican Republic last month. Here are some notes from his visit.

The school continues to have a vibrant evangelistic influence among its students and the community, and Dr. Horne had the opportunity to share the gospel in several meetings throughout the week.

At a teachers’ meeting, he spoke about how to talk to angry students and hold them accountable. They worked through several issues and had an enthusiastic time of questions afterward.

At a parents’ meeting, he also shared the biblical nature of discipline, appealing to the parents to support the school’s goals of using even discipline to train the children in biblical wisdom. As many unbelievers were present, it was an excellent opportunity to share the gospel and point the parents to their only hope.

After the parents’ meeting, he met with the senior students to help them work through how to plan for their futures. Dr. Horne focused on the most important question you can ask for future planning: “Who am I?” He then led a discussion about the parable of the talents in Matthew 25, pressing them to see that each of them is a steward called to be in a relationship with God and glorify Him with the talents entrusted to them, not just to live for themselves.

Prayer Points

Meeting with the High Schoolers

  • Please pray for the Lord to give the staff wisdom in interacting with students and opportunities to share the gospel and show the love of Christ to these young people.
  • Pray for the Lord to work in the parents’ hearts and bring many to faith in Christ. Pray also for them to support the school as they seek to shepherd their children.
  • Pray for the graduating seniors at FLCS. Pray for wisdom and direction for what to do after graduation. Pray for believers to grow in faith, love, and steadfastness, and pray for the Lord to bring many more to faith in Him.
  • FLCS rejoices in the recent baptism of nine of their high schoolers! Many of their testimonies alluded to how the Lord had used their teachers to point them to Christ. Please pray for the Lord to grow these young people in faith and love for Him and His Word and bring many more students to repentance and faith.
