On Monday morning our team went to the market in San Juan on our way out to the barrio (neighborhood) where we provided health care services. We went to the community of Bastida. This is the place where Brookside has helped to build a church and where our youth teams have conducted vacation bible school. We treated 170 people, most of whom were children under the age of 13. The Evangelist and several of our team members went out into the community and had the opportunity to share the gospel and pray with several Dominicans.
The Pastor in Bastidas gathered our at the end of the day to thank us and to say that he will be praying for us.
Thank you for your prayers. They sustain and protect us. Our team has remained safe and healthy, to this point as I am writing this on Tuesday morning. We are working well together and building relationships with one another, as we learn more about who God is and the world he has created.
Isn’t it amazing that we serve a Sovereign God who loves us!
Blessings to you from the Dominican Republic. In His service,
