I (Sal(vador))know a lady in town who just moved here from the Dominican Republic with her "American" husband. I was just asked about getting some children books in Spanish, so I decided to do a site on this nation. I've been meaning to do one since my local church went as a team on a mission trip one year.
Many Baseball Players
I noticed many Major League Baseball players come from this country,so I decided to do some re"search"..
*first heard his testimony on August of 2006 on Focus on the Family
ALBERT PUJOLS KNOWS WHAT'S IMPORTANT He's one of the game's best, and he's focused inside and out of the ballpark. by Lee Warren
"While Pujols appreciates the awards and the applause, the last thing he wants is to be idolized. Instead, he says, My advice for young Christian fans and people who are not saved is, if you dont know [Christ], get to know Him before its too late. For those who know Him, keep your eyes on the Lord because there are so many temptations out there and traps that [Satan] will set for us. Walking with the Lord and having Him in our hearts those are the things that are never going to fail.
Pujols knows that God has given him incredible ability, and hes quick to point out that he knows what he is supposed to do with it.
The Lord gave me this talent and ability to be in this position, but this is not my [main] job, Pujols says. My job is to go out and to share about what God has done in my life to the whole world. If I cant play tomorrow, Im going to keep following my main thing because thats what I believe. This is just a platform that the Lord has given me so I can get to know people and reach people.

Albert Pujols From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"José Alberto Pujols Alcántara (born January 16, 1980), better known as Albert Pujols (Spanish pronunciation: [puˈxols]), is a professional baseball player who has played his entire career in Major League Baseball (MLB) for the St. Louis Cardinals. Currently a first baseman, Pujols is well-known for his all-around ability as a player to hit for both average and power, plus his base-running and fielding excellence. His consistency over his ten years in the Major Leagues has earned him the reputation as one of the best players in the game today and the most feared hitter in baseball, according to a poll of all 30 MLB managers in 2008. He won the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2001 and has since been selected as an All-Star nine times, has won the National League Most Valuable Player Award three times, has twice won the National League Hank Aaron Award, and has a World Series ring from the Cardinals 2006 title.
As of the end of the 2010 season, he leads all active players in batting average (.331), slugging percentage (.624), and on-base percentage (.426), and ranks among the top 50 leading home run hitters in Major League Baseball history. He was selected by ESPN.com as the greatest player of the decade from 2000–2009. He stands 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), weighs 230 pounds (100 kg), bats and throws right-handed.
Pujols at Glenn Beck's "Restoring Honor" rally
Pujols married his wife, Deidre, on January 1, 2000. They have four children, Isabella (Deidre's daughter, from a previous relationship), Albert Jr., Sophia, and Ezra. Albert and his wife are active in the cause of people with Down syndrome, as Isabella was born with this condition.
....Pujols and his wife are active Christians; his foundation's website states, "In the Pujols family, God is first. Everything else is a distant second." Pujols attends a Baptist church. ["
...If you have never trusted Jesus Christ as your Savior, I invite you to do that right now. It is by far and away the best decision I have ever made in my life. I know you will feel the same. I encourage you to say this prayer:
If you said this prayer with an open and repentant heart, I welcome you into the family of God!
Please send us an e-mail and let us know about your decision to follow Jesus Christ. If you are still searching and have questions or need more information about the claims of Christ, let us know. Our staff will do its best to point you in the right direction to begin you own Walk of Faith.
"Faith, Family, and Others" is the mission of the Pujols Family Foundation and the motto of our lives. We hope now you understand why."
