Elevation youth is going on their first major missions trip. We are going to the Dominican Republic.
This is an amazing opportunity, that I am excited to share with leaders and teens alike.
I was in the D.R. several years ago and was so touched by the people, the culture and the sincere hearts of the believers that I have wanted to go back ever since.
Our trip will be June 8th-14th 2019. We will be landing in Santo Domingo and then driving to stay at the CTC House ( Consulting, Training, Couching) in San Cristobal.
Our host will be Enris Beliard, the director of the CTC House, as well as my good friends Viola Jackson, and Ferlinda Zambrano.
My goal for this trip is three fold. I want to:
Love– The people and the opportunity to experience new culture
Serve– Those in the community and our team
Connect– with everyone we come in contact
In reading the story of the “Good Samaritan” we see that Jesus makes the point that our “Neighbor” is whoever we are close to. And in the case of that story the Samaritan’s neighbor was someone from a different culture and way of thinking. I am looking forward to us all getting a little out of our comfort zones to love and be loved by the people of the Dominican.
Please pray for the leadership team and for the people that we will be in connection with in the D.R. And please pray for the youth, that all our hearts will be open to connect with the Father’s heart more. And that we will effectively connect with everyone we meet.
