Fruits of the Spirit!
God is doing so much in the Dominican Republic and we feel so blessed to be a part of it. This year we have seen 31 children become believers in Christ. What an amazing time to hold those little hands and pray with them, then watch the pastors baptize them in the river. They have been coming to the church for nearly two years and hearing about Jesus and singing praise songs to God. We have had nearly a dozen trips in that same time frame designed to improve the mission that God has called us to do, but also to love on the children and the community.
It is critical that we continue to send teams of people who can love on these children and help in spreading the hope of the Gospel. The pastors and volunteers in our programs are working very hard and when they witnessed the children coming to Christ, they were so motivated and had a renewed energy.
There are so many more children and their families that need Christ in the communities we serve so we ask that you pray for them daily. Also, we need people to go on short-term trips with us or lead a trip to be the hands and feet of our Savior. There is so much work to do; however, the children and parents are receptive to the Word of God.
