Dominican Republic/Haiti Team is Back!
Thank you to everyone who partnered with the team in prayer. We arrived home late Saturday night and the team is doing well and excited to be home.
WEEK ONE: DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
God is so faithful and is so good. The team spent the first week in Cotui, working with Milagros and the learning center and furthering our relationships with the community and the children. We were all excited to be a part of the building of the community center, a place built for worship services, classes, Bible studies, sports, and community meetings. What a blessing to be a part of what God is doing in this rice farming community!
Teaching about the miracles of Jesus
WEEK TWO: HAITI
Haiti was devastating. The physical devastation was far worse than we could have imagined, even with all the media coverage. The emotional pain and sadness went deep. Yet God is doing a mighty work in Haiti, and using such a horrific tragedy to bring a nation unto Himself. While there, we worked in a "tent city," a community of tents filled with displaced and houseless people. We held Bible studies, taught Sunday school, held a first aid clinic, played HOURS of soccer, washed dishes, learned the "correct" way to do laundry by hand, and spent time praying and listening to the stories of this community of about 450 people. I will continue posting stories of what God did and is doing in Haiti, but for now here are a few pictures...
