Eric and Kindsey Schneider

  • Country Dominican Republic
Eric and Kindsey met at college where they both attended Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO. They graduated in May of 2013, Eric with a degree in Agriculture Business and Kindsey with a double major in Mathematics and Spanish. They were married soon after graduation. In 2014, Eric and Kindsey served with Kids Alive International as summer interns in the Dominican Republic. After their summer internship, God called them back to serve there longer term.

Kindsey felt God calling her to work with orphans when she was 15. He showed her this vision when she spent two summers in Peru working at an orphanage. Eric has felt God calling him to help and serve people, especially those who are in need and have very little. He has seen God leading him in this direction since his youth group mission work trips.

Eric and Kindsey feel that together, God will use them to reach orphans and kids at risk. Kindsey works in communicating with the teachers at ANIJA and house parents at the Ark in order to set up a tutoring program to help improve the education of the 70+ kids, acts as the child sponsorship coordinator at the Ark, and directs the summer program activities. Eric works to maintain equipment and improvements at the Ark and other locations, acts as the team host at the Ark, and pursues initiatives in agriculture.

Eric and Kindsey have seen God working throughout their lives to bring them to where they are today in mission work for orphans and kids at risk, and are thankful to be on the Kids Alive team in Jarabacoa. They are also enjoying the blessing of being parents to their daughter Makenna and will soon welcome their son at the end of December 2016.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28
