Makarios holds a special place in our family. Both my husband and I volunteered with this organization as college students. We were both exposed to holistic development grounded on the gospel of Jesus Christ through Makarios. I learned more about the gospel and how to think of community development and empowerment the more I served and worked with the team both in Austin and the DR.

Later, I had the opportunity to join the Austin team as a staff member. Even getting a closer look at the organization, being a part of other organization and church partnerships, sending teams, hiring staff members, etc. I only saw how much our teams (Austin and the DR) wanted to pursue Jesus and His vision for Makarios. This team seeks God's vision, His will and provision for this organization. They don't considering it theirs but His. They seek His face weekly together in prayer and multiple other times per week in decision making, meeting prep and more.

This team also loves one another well. Our family has recently been through deep heartache and trial. Makarios came around us. Loved us near and from afar. Prayed for us continually. After leaving staff in the spring of 2015, I have since see them do this for one another and others around them. They try to love and serve like Christ.

I couldn't give a higher review. My husband continues to serve with Makarios each summer as he takes some of our high school youth students to the DR. We hope to one day return as a family with our 21 month old as soon as she is able to.

I took a short term mission trip to the Dominican Republic and we served the Makarios ministry. I was so moved by the work they were doing that I moved to the Dominican Republic two years later and taught at the Makarios School for two years. Makarios is a ministry truly dedicated to the Lord. They are passionate about making Him known and keeping Him at the center of everything they do. Working at Makarios was one the biggest blessings that the Lord gave me and makarios continues to bless me to this day!

Makarios has changed countless lives (including mine, but most importantly those of children and families in the Dominican Republic). This organization has so much heart and is fueled by a love for Jesus. Their work inspires me and others, and the seeds they are sowing will be reaped in unimaginable ways for years to come.
