"My sickness is temporary. I get encouraged by seeing how happy and excited the children get over a rubber ball instead of watching a 16 year old getting a new car here. They are so grateful. Their faces remind me of Jesus. It's heart warming and an encouragement to my faith."

Sage goes down to the Dominican Republic several times a year and has helped start 41 businesses there, giving counseling and being a mentor. He meets with the villagers and gets their ideas for businesses and comes back here to raise money or help secure loans.

For more information about how to donate or help, call 850-890-2589. Sage said 100 percent of money donated and earmarked for the water filtration system will go toward that.

"I can't think of a more worthwhile cause to donate to right now," said Joan Luchese, who attends the church.
