Eric and Adrian Martinez are a father-son duo who have been involved with BOUNCE: Student Disaster Recovery since the first year. As a pastor, Eric knows the value of mobilizing students for mission service.
Eric says, “With BOUNCE, you see the students desire to come back year after year. It takes a lot to get them there the first year. They’re not sure about it and they are thinking about the hard work, but once they leave, they want to come back.” Eric continues, “It’s been very important for me to see my kids learn about missions through BOUNCE.”
Adrian adds, “I love being able to help somebody and seeing the reaction on their face when they see the finished job. The moment when they see their brand new roof, their brand new fence, their brand new siding, and everything you have done for them, is awesome. I love seeing the pure joy in their eyes.”
Through your gifts to the Mary Hill Davis Offering for Texas Missions®, BOUNCE was able to mobilize 975 participants, serving approximately 58 families in Texas and completed a total of 115 construction projects in 2019.
