We recently returned to Tennessee after a week in the Dominican Republic on a survey trip. We absolutely fell in love with the people there, both the team from Daystar Baptist Missions and the Dominican nationals. After a few days of prayer and counsel we feel like this is where the Lord would have us to minister. This is just the beginning of a long road ahead of us, as we raise support for the field, with our target date to arrive in the Dominican, August 2012. Please pray with us that this becomes a reality. Thank you to all those who prayed and gave financially for this survey trip, it was truly a life changing event!
We will be assisting in the opening of the middle and high school in the Las Palmas Christian School, along with working on developing relationships and a tutoring program with several Major League Baseball Dominican League teams. Also Julia will be helping with the ladies ministry and teaching music. The first year or two we will spend ministering in English as we continue to learn Spanish. Once we have the language down it will open many more doors for us to minister in the church and other various capacities.
