We had an amazing time serving Jesus in the Dominican Republic and now we want to share some stories with you! Check back here soon to read a summary of our trip and some stories from our students. In the meantime, here’s what a few of them had to say…
“During this trip God showed me the more I was willing to get out of my comfort zone and be uncomfortable, the more I made someone else comfortable. God used my discomfort to bring comfort to those who don’t get the love that they need. He took my nerves and turned it into joy that helped me to see my purpose in life.”
“During this trip the power of God was something you couldn't deny. The fact that God works everywhere was evident. I got to see women worship God in a different language and share the same love I do in a completely different part of the world.”
On this trip, I saw how God can use normal people to make a big difference. I got to see how faithful my site leader and his wife were to God’s calling by doing so much for their community: like teaching in a Christian preschool, helping mothers receive their high school diploma, and having various leadership roles in their church. They are trusting in God in every situation, and it is evident to see how their faith is influencing their lives.
