Above & Beyond: Learning to Dream with Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz
Brock Huard and his family have sponsored Yessica through Compassion International for seven years, and in May, the Huard family finally got the chance to meet her in El Salvador. On the latest episode of Above & Beyond, Brock shares what it was like to see Compassion’s impact on Yessica and her community while spending time with her family and touring their projects in El Salvador.
In the second part of this episode, Brock sits down with Mariners slugger Nelson Cruz to discuss his upbringing in the Dominican Republic. From having to create his own toys out of branches and plastic bottles to working in his uncle’s auto shop at the age of 8 to living on his own at 17 to pursue his dreams in baseball, Cruz details how his faith gave him the peace and confidence to dream big and accomplish things he couldn’t have imagined were possible.
