Mission trip to Dominican Republic

Organized by: Jooen Kim

As some of you might remember, during my Sophomore year I was planning to go to Liberia for a mission trip. However, a week before the trip, I was taken to the ER and underwent a major surgery which included a removal of a tumor mass in my spinal cord. Even though the surgery was successful, I had to stay in my hospital bed while others were in Liberia. I was and am still very thankful that I was not paralyzed. My chronic severe back pain which I had suffered for 5 years, was completely gone. But I still could not understand why all the time and effort that were spent for the mission trip, went "wasted". I still don't know why I couldn't go to Liberia. However, as I am writing this letter, I realize that God used my desire for the mission trip in His way and in His time. It has been almost 8 years since I had my back surgery. It also took almost 8 years until I found a desire to learn and explore more about God's love through a mission trip. After being a career woman for a little over two years, I found myself wanting to step out from my comfort zone and do something unique and crazy for God. Something that I could do right now, because God restored my body 8 years ago. I know this trip will be quite a challenge for me for many reasons. Nevertheless, knowing that I have nothing special in me, but God who loves me and Jesus Christ who is the only hope in this world, I have more than enough reason to go on to this mission trip. We will be going to Dominican Republic, July 26th-August 6th. There, we will be serving the Haitian immigrants through medical missions, construction and vacation bible school for the children. Our team has been meeting every Sunday to prepare for this trip for over a month and we will continue to meet until we leave for missions. The expenses for this mission trip, including travel, living and medical, require each member to raise $1,600.00. It's not a small amount of money and I am thankful that I can trust and wait to experience God's faithfulness once again. Please join me in serving the people of Dominican Republic by supporting me through prayer, finance or both. I am eager to see and learn more about God's love in Dominican Republic... through your prayers and support! Also I cannot wait to share with you about God's love from Dominican Republic through this mission trip. In Christ's love, Grace
