Dan & Kari’s Blog Hey! We are Dan and Kari Straley, the Guesthouse Administrators for Solid Rock International. We are full-time missionaries living in San Juan de la Maguana working with the North American teams who come down to serve. We met doing missions work in Juarez, Mexico in 2007 and were thrilled to accept this position and become part of the Solid Rock family in February 2011. Visit our blog to learn more about our work in the DR!


Laura’s Blog Hi, I’m Laura Demastus.  I am excited to be a member of the Solid Rock Staff in the Dominican Republic. The people of San Juan de la Maguana captured my heart the first time I came here on a short-term missions trip in 2005.  I am thrilled and blessed to have the opportunity to live and work here, using my social work skills to partner with the Child Nutrition and Student Sponsorship Programs.


Nicole’s Blog Hi there!  I’m Nicole, and I’m the medical team assistant and sponsorship coordinator here at Solid Rock International.   I guess you could say that I have my hand in a few different pots, working with the clinic and the barrio teams, and the sponsorship at the schools.  However, my favorite thing to do is  simply interact with the wonderful folks that we get to take care of and spend time with.   I am enchanted with the life and culture of the Dominican Republic and feel blessed to be able to be here serving with our amazing teams.

Jeff & Kamanda’s Blog We are thrilled to be in San Juan with our daughter Braegan as a part of the Solid Rock Staff. We are excited to see how God is going to use the REVOLUTION project to spread health education and healing throughout the country. Jeff works with the construction teams while Kamanda uses her passion for education to increase the support for local schools and student sponsorship. We love working alongside both Americans and Dominicans while serving the Lord through SRI.
