Soon Up: Missions Trip to the Dominican Republic

Posted by on 04 Feb 2009 | Tagged as: my life., New Hope stuff.

On February 15 14, I’ll depart for a 9-day excursion to the Dominican Republic, where my team of four (C, Keith, Darlene and myself) will work to envision the local church leaders about missions.
We will talk to the children in the church about our unreached peoples group (a distinct group of people who have no churches among them), and excite them in song and spirit about the children who are living around the world from them.

Later in the week, we will be at a pastors conference for a group of Dominican churches. We have heard there are at least three churches very interested in our missionary efforts to the unreached peoples group.
Interesting side note: One of our current missionaries working among our people group is a Dominican!

Through the week, I am also going to use my computer expertise to fix a Toshiba laptop computer (parts are already ordered for it), and also brainstorm about their website. We also think we may be doing some finish construction work on a training center, but we’re unsure exactly what we’ll be doing there. All we know is we’re there to serve and do whatever is asked of us!

I’m going to miss my wife tons and tons and tons while I’m gone for these 8 days, but it’s all worth it to see our unreached peoples group find the knowledge of Jesus as their savior!

I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to update while we’re there, but I’ll be twittering all I can and also updating the blog if Internet allows.

    Enjoy the gorgeous scenery! The D.R. is the most beautiful country I’ve ever seen.

    Just don’t set the computers at church to stop working the moment you’re gone like you usually do ;)
