I am headed back to the Dominican Republic for the third time within a year! This time for a one week mission trip with a group of thirty-some individuals.
Here we go again! I am traveling back to the Dominican Republic for a short-term missions trip from June 6th through June 13th. I will be with a group of thirty-some individuals from two different churches in the Pittsburgh area, some of which have been a part of these biyearly missions trip for years and others are new to short-term missions. This will be a great opportunity to continue sharing the love of Christ and the hope we have in Him as we continue building relationships with the Dominicans as well as one another.
My exact role in this upcoming trip is uncertain, though I typically work with the children in the Bible clubs. In the past, these week-long trips have included Bible clubs for kids in the villages and school, construction projects on both individual’s homes as well as community buildings (water purification buildings, medical clinics, schools, etc.), medical/dental clinics, soccer clubs, teacher training, etc. We also do many home visits with the Dominicans, which is my favorite! I feel this is where Christ’s love and the hope we have in Him is truly shared. During this trip, we will continue to minister to the people living in Villa Hermosa, a village we have been returning to for at least six years! Please feel free to contact me if you would like to learn more!
After this trip, I will have been to the Dominican Republic a total of four times since 2009, with three of these trips being within a year! Having only returned from a five week long trip on March 15th, it is a financial stretch for me to be able to go back. I am not accustomed to asking for financial assistance for my trips, and it truly touches me any time someone provides assistance. Every little bit helps! Total cost: $1,260
I am VERY excited to see what God has in store for everyone involved in this trip. I know lives will be changed because of it, as I have seen and experienced myself in the past! Let’s further the Kingdom of God together!
With love and gratitude,
