We once again get the privilege of going to the Dominican Republic with a group from our church to serve. We are thankful that we get to give a week of our time and energy to have an impact on bettering the lives of others and furthering the kingdom of God. We will once again be partnering with GO Ministries July 4th - 11th.
We will be helping rebuild communities around and in Santiago. We will also be doing some children's ministry and worship.
GO Ministries is a Non-Profit organization. Go Ministries is dedicated to the vision of Redeeming People, Renewing Communities and Restoring Creation through working alongside of Local Leaders creating opportunities for Partnership. They empower the community to engage with helping their neighbors.
Once there GoMinistries will plug us in working wherever their greatest need is at that moment. In the past we have worked on their unfinished ministry complex building baseball fields to do local outreach (baseball is a big deal there, it's every boys dream to make it to the pros!) as well as cleaning up a huge construction dump site so that the property could be used to bless a local seminary student there along with his family. We have also been a part of their children's ministry, feeding, playing with and helping to show love to the children in many communities around Santiago. For many of these children this is the only safe meal they get a day or a week. Go Ministries also treats medical needs to keep them routinely safe. This year we will get to take part in a new focus they have for children's ministry called the kids festival which will be an outdoor event held in an open space, with all kinds of activities and such for the children. This will give us plenty of time to love on them and Further grow the long term relationship GoMinistries is building with the community. Worship will also be included in this event and our group will perform a song for the children (in Spanish, pray for us! Lol)
As a husband and wife couple Jeremy and I have a lot of funds to raise to take part in this mission. We still have along way to go and we decided to reach out and ask for help from any who are blessed enough to be able to. The cost includes all travel expenses, food, lodging and helps with the cost of the ministry I will be a part of once I arrive on the field. We have to turn in final payment by May 25th.
