We can hardly explain the joy that we receive when we get to share God’s mission to the nations TOGETHER! We came down as a family (Ryan, Abigail, and Adaline) to the Dominican Republic to work with another missionary family (The Santos) to provide additional training for them and some influential leaders as well as make plans for our future work in this city.
So far, we have been able to share additional training at different times with the Santos family and get to learn more about their hearts for the Lord. We are excited to see what ministry is ahead of them as well as what the Lord allows us to do together.
We have also been able to train a new (and key) pastor in a community that desperately needs the gospel. We took the pastor and some local workers into the community to model prayerwalking and gospeling. The community is simply referred to as “Villa” and we are praying that those we have trained will multiply disciples in the neighborhood.
Today we were able to spend time casting vision and planning with two very influential pastors. We are very encouraged by their excitement and desire to multiply disciples and churches. We were able to make some tentative plans about future trainings and missionary journeys (keep an eye on our website) and with the Lord’s leading and provision, we are trusting that a movement of God through local disciples/churches in Santiago (the city we are in) is on the horizon!
The plan for our remaining time in the DR is to spend some time encouraging those we worked with in December on our missionary journey and provide the next level training for the missionary family we are partnering with. We are heading back to the airport to start our trip home on Monday afternoon. So please join us in praying that we can make the most of the time we have left! All for God’s Glory!
Please pray for:
- Continued health for our remaining days here
- Opportunities to train and cast vision
- Receptivity for those we train, to grasp it and then put it into action
- Safe travels home on Monday afternoon
