THE STORY:

In June 2011, I will be spending 8 days in the Dominican Republic with a group of friends from my church, Life Community Church. I am the team leader for the group of approximately 20 people. During my time there, I hope to help some folks who have needs -- medical, physical or career-related. This will be my fifth trip in the last five years to the DR.

Sometimes it only takes about $15 or $20 to help change someone's life in a developing country like the Dominican Republic. I will do my best to work with my local contacts there and interview the folks I'll be helping so that I can feel good that the money is being spent wisely. Where possible, I will purchase what is needed and give it to the person. In fact, I'm going down to the DR for four days in February to meet with folks and to begin the planning process for the larger trip in June.

I want to make a difference in someone's life by meeting a physical need and then pray that I have an opportunity to strike up a deeper conversation to help meet emotional and spiritual needs.

It will cost me about $400 for my airfare, and I plan to pay for all my expenses on the ground out of my own pocket. Beyond that, I will use every penny of the additional funds to directly help the people of Monte Plata.

All of your donated funds go through Life Community Church so that you can get tax credit for your donation.
