This spring I will be going on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic! I am going with other occupational and physical therapy students with Christian Medical Ministries of Alabama. I am so excited for this opportunity to care for both the physical and spiritual needs of the people we will meet in the Dominican Republic. During this trip, we will be traveling to different villages and setting up clinics in churches. The occupational and physical therapy students, with the help of practitioners, will be able to treat the needs of the people who seek treatment at the clinic, which will be the perfect gateway for us to share the gospel. This will be my first mission trip and I am super pumped to go out and share the same good news that changed my life forever this past summer! I have recently become a member of the Church at Brook Hills, which over the past few months has grown a passion for me wanting to go on a mission trip. Every Sunday, as a congregation, we read Matthew 28:18-20 together, which states,
"And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
I am writing in hopes of building a team of supporters for my upcoming trip. I would love for you to partner with me in one or two ways: prayer and financial support.
- For God to prepare the way spiritually and financially for our team
- For the people we meet to be receptive to the gospel
- For our team to rely on the Holy Spirit in conversations
The estimated cost of the trip is $1850. The first half of the payment is due Febuary 2nd, and the second half is due April 1st. No donation is too small and will be greatly appreciated! If you would like to donate via mail you can make checks payable to CMMA with the memo section having my name (Paeton McGowan). Checks can be mailed to :

Thank you for taking the time to read this and considering how you can partner with me!
