Rick Pina is the first of his family to be born in the United States. His mother, Maria Nunez, emigrated from the Dominican Republic in 1970 and Rick was born in Brooklyn, NY, two years later.
As a child Rick visited his homeland every year and he cherishes his Dominican roots.
While the Lord has called Rick and Isabella to preach the Gospel around the world, they both have a heart for the Caribbean.
