What an amazing weekend.. from 0" to 48" of snow, the DR team traveled from in town to 8 hours away to meet each other and find out more about what they will be doing for the Lord in the Dominican. I have the distinct honor of being part of this team of 34 people. An amazing group of "friends" KSLT/KLMP/The Point Staff, Hills Alive coordinator, previous team members from past trips(junkies-lol). and a number of first time trip takers. All united in one cause- to be the hands and feet of Jesus to the Dominican people. We will be leaving in just four weeks -and our prayer is that we will be building phase one of a sports and project complex. Right now, nearly 2000 children are being cared for in the Dominican, and we hope to finish the baseball diamond for the kids to have a safe place to come. (currently, they are receiving food, clothing, medical assistance, education, and are hearing about how much Jesus loves them).
This is an amazing group of people, and i am thrilled to see what God would reveal to each of us. Over 1/2 of the team will be meeting their sponsored children and families there in the Dominican Republic. It is hard to imagine that just $30 per month truly makes a difference in the lives of these children-and we have seen first hand-it is the difference of LIFE!
