Ministry in Bombita!

One of my favorite things to do with short term mission teams is go from home to home and pray for people and hopefully have a opportunity to share the gospel with thoses who don’t know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We had a team here a few weeks ago and these are some pictures of when we went to Bombita to pray for those who were home. Bombita is one of the communities that we minister to. […]

Putting up the NEW tent at our Spanish Church!

A couple of week ago we received the new tent that would replace the old tent at the Spanish Church. The old one had many many wholes in it. It was nothing to get a little wet at church on Wednesday and Friday nights if it was raining. The new tent arrived and here are some pictures of Tony and the other men taking down the old one and putting up the new. Leah loved helping with the tent as well, and Logan even […]

Ladies Bible study!

Three weeks ago, I started a ladies Bible study. It is the Beth Moore study on the book of Daniel. We have the videos and we are really enjoying getting together each week to study God’s word. The pictures below are most of the ladies. There were a couple missing that night. We meet in one of the school rooms at Colegio Nueva Vida, which is our English speaking church and Christian School. The fan in the top right hand portion of […]

Learning to be flexible!

When we answered the call to move to the Dominican Republic, I knew I would have to learn how to be flexible. Tony has always been good with going with the flow. Me on the other hand, well, I’m not so much like that. I’m a really structured person, and I like to plan things out. If I’m going to teach a class, I will prepare for days to have it just right. Well, a couple of weeks ago we […]

Our commissioning service!

Before we left Hendersonville, TN, our home church 1st Baptist Hendersonville, gave us a commissioning service. 1st Baptist has played a huge roll in how God has transformed our lives. We have been members of 1st Baptist for 13 years. God gave us a passion for missions and used the missions ministry at 1st Baptist to help us fulfill our desire to serve the Lord full-time overseas. We are thankful for all of our friends and family who came and […]

The Water Problem

We live on a very big hill in Sosua. The area is called Los Cerros. All the homes have cisterns that hold the water for the homes. The city has a large pump at the bottom of the hill that pumps the water up the hill to our cisterns. 2 weeks after we arrived, the pump at at the bottom of the hill stopped working. At first I really freaked out. “What do you mean we aren’t getting any water?!!!!” With […]

Our First Month!

Today, it has been 4 weeks since we arrived in Sosua, Dominican Republic. It has been exciting at times and there have been times when it has been very discouraging. We have worked with 3 different teams; we have learned a lot about living here. It will take more time to adjust to how things work, and the difference in the language. We have been taking Spanish classes 3 days a week for about 2 ½ weeks. It is coming […]

Our first few days!

Here’s the first update! We arrived at 1:00 Tuesday, June 15th. Today is June 20th. We went to the English church this morning where Brandon James preached an incredible sermon on the story of when Nicodemus came to Jesus at night, and Jesus said “you must be born again in order to see the Kingdom of God”.  There were more people at the English church than I thought there would be; considering it is off season down here in the […]

TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

We leave in just 36 hours! Wow! I can’t believe we’ve made it this far. Less than a year ago, God called us to join him in what He is already doing in Sosua, Dominican Republic. While it seems like forever, at the same time, it has gone by so fast. When we first started this journey, we thought we knew how it should all play out in order to accomplish the goals that needs to be accomplished in order […]
