October has flown by because we have been so busy! I love to be busy! We started out by welcoming Bill and Beth Dinwiddie and their 3 kids to the island for the whole month. It has been such a joy to have them here! They were such a blessing to not only the Dominican people that they ministered to, but also to our family. With our kids being so much older than Franklin, he hasn’t had much contact with children his own age. It was so much fun to see their kids and Franklin play together. Franklin will truly miss his new friends now that they have returned to the states. Well, we will ALL miss them! They are like family now! While Bill and Beth were, they helps in sooooo many ways. Beth worked at the PRC and did devotionals with the clients. She had multiple girls accept Christ during her time with them! Bill did some much needed repairs at the PRC and also worked along side José Luis (Corelia’s husband) in the gardens helping to complete some construction projects. Bill also lead Tony’s bible study that he holds for some men at the Pregnancy Center every week. the month was more than productive and more importantly, they brought God glory in all that they did! Thank you Bill and Beth!
On October 4th, we had a team from our home church of First Baptist Hendersonville arrive to serve for one week. Their projects for the week were building a chicken coop, a utility room, completing the concrete on a home, cleaning up the gardens and giving a VBS in 2 different areas. FBCH always sends their best people! We love them dearly! Everyone worked so hard and always had the best of attitudes! All in all, we had 64 people give their lives to Jesus! Praise the Lord! Way to go Team First Baptist! We love you!
