Diamonds in the Rough April 2023

Patricia De La Cruz Beltre

We are so happy to welcome Patricia to the Joshua 1:Nine family! She was born on April 18, 2023 to Coach Meblin and his wife Silvia. Both mom and baby are doing well. Meblin reports she is eating a lot and she is a happy baby. Patricia joins the family with her big brother Emmanuel.

Congratulations to the entire family!

Thanks to the benefits provided by Joshua 1:Nine Silvia and Patricia received the best care possible at a local hospital. Both Melbin and Silvia were appreciative to not have to worry about the cost of bringing Patricia into the world!


We are taking groups to spend a week with the kids in the DR! If this sounds like something you are interested in being part of let us know by clicking the link above, sending an email and we’ll get you more information!

As always, we are thankful for you, our supporters. We pray you are happy, healthy and know the peace that comes through faith in Jesus Christ. He has all of us in his hand, here and abroad, and for that we are forever thankful. Thank you for your prayers and ongoing support!

With deepest gratitude from the guys.
