To our amazing friends and family,

Craig and I have some exciting news to share with you! We have an amazing opportunity to work alongside of GO Ministries in the Dominican Republic from June 3rd-June 11th. This will be our first year working side-by-side with local leaders to make disciples as God redeems people, renews communities, and restores creation. Praise the Lord for this opportunity!

GO Ministries is a faith-based, non-profit organization. They are dedicated to empowering local leaders to serve their own communities and by serving with them, we hope to grow in discipleship and become better local leaders in our own context when we return to the States. 

While we are there, we will be working alongside Dominican and Haitian brothers and sisters to serve communities, shed light on the local churches, and bring glory to God. We will participate in a range of activities to help meet the needs of the community such as construction projects, painting, and children's ministry activities. 

All of this to say, we hope you will consider partnering with us to reach people in the DR and to further the Kingdom! I would like to ask you to prayerfully consider partnering with us in these two ways: 

1. Pray for us, our team of 25 people, and for the people of the Dominican Republic to receive the Gospel. Pray for our work to be a blessing to those we are in contact with. Pray for the local leaders of GO Ministries and all of the full-time missionaries working in the field. Prayer is the foundation of our mission!

2. We would also like to ask you to consider financially supporting us on our trip. We have already been able to raise over $1,800 between the two of us. We are still needing to raise a total of $2,600 for both of us to have all the funds we need to go. This cost includes all travel expenses, passports, food, lodging, and helps with the cost of the ministry we will be working with. We would love to have all of our funds completely raised by the end of March. 

We would also love to keep you updated on details of the trip and the ministry happening in the DR through GO Ministries! You can check out their mission by visiting their website at www.gomin.org. If you would like more information about our trip, please reach out to either Craig and myself! We plan to send letters out once we return to those who have committed to supporting us by prayer or monetarily. 

Dios le Bendiga!
