Caught in between excitement and scared, in between feeling prepared and expecting to be caught of guard, in between trusting in the Lord and tentative for what lies ahead. It’s a wide range of emotions and thoughts flooding those of us readying ourselves to go to the Dominican Republic. For each individual its a different process, a different struggle and a different level of anticipation for whats in store. But God… you throw in those two words into any situation and it changes…well… everything!
“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins…But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved” – Ephesians 2:1,4-5
In any circumstance, in any situation in life, whatever may come our way you can never underestimate those words…but God…because He is greater than anything, even death itself, how much more will the power of God work in us through His resurrecting power!
It is with great excitement and holy fear that our team is traveling to the Dominican Republic. We have spent months prepping, praying and gathering support and now the day approaches nearer still. We are blessed that you are traveling with us as you follow along with our blog, may it bless and encourage you because you’re apart of our team too. You’re support has been such an encouragement to us all, we appreciate your ongoing prayers. May our stories in life reflect the…but God… moments that inspire others and glorify His name.
Yours in Christ,
2017 Dominican Republic Team
