Dessert Reception featuring Mario Matos

Blog Archives:

Come and be inspired by the testimony of a key Dominican leader. Mario Matos is visiting from the DR and has an incredible story to share with you.

Of Haitian descent, Mario grew up in a batey in the Dominican Republic -- communities formed when Haitians illegally immigrated to the DR to work on sugarcane plantations. When that industry ended, these workers and their families were left in poverty, without recognition of even their existence from the Dominican government.

Mario was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to attend a Christian school that reached out to his community. Now a key leader and pastor working with missions throughout the DR, he looks back on that opportunity as one that shaped his entire life. "It enabled me to become who I am," says Mario. "By the grace of God, many of my dreams and hopes came true, thanks to those who supported me to get an education."

Now Mario has the opportunity to share his incredible testimony with you. He is visiting Canada in order to share the momentum of Christ-centred education in the Dominican Republic: stories of how the lives of children, teachers and their families are being transformed by encountering the message of the Gospel through Christian schools!
