Dominican Republic Mission Trip

We have been invited to travel to the Dominican Republic next month to minister to a group of Dominican and Haitian Churches.  Haitian citizens of the Dominican Republic are being deported if they cannot prove citizenship.  This has resulted in a refugee camp on the border of Haiti and the Dominican Republic for Haitians who do not have any place to go.  Pastor Charlie Dieudonne has asked if we would provide three days of Bible teaching as an effort to unite the Haitian and Dominican Churches.  He believes that healing can only come by way of the church.


I have asked Bro. Samuel and Bro. Smiley to accompany me and I am now asking for the prayers of the New Covenant family as we prepare to minister to this situation.  God is able to do exceedingly and abundantly above and beyond all that we can ask or think.  We need our heavenly Father to intervene and bring healing to the people of both countries.  The root of this issue goes back deep into the history of the island of Hispaniola.  I have studied the history of both countries in preparation to minister the Word of God.  I plan to teach on reconciliation while Bro. Samuel teaches on the subject of forgiveness.

I know that the prayers of the righteous make a difference.  Please start now praying that God will use us to minister His Word to this situation.  God is always inviting us to join Him in what He is doing.  I am not sure exactly what to expect, but I have faith that the Lord will accomplish His purpose for sending us there. 

Blessings to All
