Robersy: As any typical Dominican boy, baseball was my LIFE from a very young age. I slept, ate and breathed baseball, still… I knew something was missing. After being given a contract with the Cincinnati Reds and a month to strengthen my swing I headed back to my hometown of Bani to get ready for a life full-filling my dreams. However, during that month I was invited to attend a baseball game where the Gospel was preached. In that moment, I realized what was missing from my life. It was Jesus Christ. Since that day when I surrendered my heart to Christ priorities have changed! Baseball is still a great passion of mine, but Christ is my EVERYTHING. I gave up my dream of playing baseball professionally and decided to use my passion for baseball to win souls for Christ.
Sarah: Born and raised in Bermuda, I never dreamed that I would serve God in the Dominican Republic. However, my heart has been mission-minded from a very young age. I was always interested in men and women who risked their lives for the Gospel, and I prayed that God would use me in a mighty way too! To prepare myself in the Word of God, I studied English and Missions at Pensacola Christian College.
In 2008 a door opened for me to serve in the Dominican Republic for a year, where I fell in love with the country, the people and also a Bible club leader named, Robersy Lara. We were married on April 6th, 2013.
From 2009 until 2013 God truly worked on our hearts and strengthened our faith in Him and led us to ministry with Score International. As doors continue to open, we praise God for preparing us to use baseball and discipleship to win souls for Jesus Christ and train up men and women for His glory!
