John Huizinga & Ryan Geleynse
Samaritan Foundation - Dominican Republic - EDU-DEO Ministries

Ryan Geleynse: Works as the Key Relationship Manager for EduDeo Ministries.  My school and work background, broad set of international experiences and love for people provide me the tools needed to foster connections between our partners and Canadian constituents.  Outside of work, my wife Amanda and I love life in the great city of Hamilton. Many of our close friends live in the city, which means there is always a group around to hang.  I love my recreational sports and I’ll gladly talk pop culture, my Leafs and new hot spots in the city to eat.


John Huizinga: Works as the HANDS (acronym for Helping Another Nation Develop Schools) Coordinator for EduDeo Ministries. EduDeo HANDS teams work alongside our foreign educational partners in building, repairing and addressing various infrastructural and school needs.  He has been with EduDeo for the past 3 months however prior to EduDeo, some of you will remember he was the previous 10 years working and living in the Dominican Republic with The Samaritan Foundation. John’s role as the HANDS coordinator is to oversee the organizing and traveling of EduDeo work/mission teams from Canada to its foreign education ministry partners in presently 4 developing countries.
