Our wonderful time of rest in MN with family and friends came to an end, and we returned to the Dominican Republic July 18th. We jumped right back into ministry when we received the Inverted Arts ministry team on July 23rd and then Phyllis Hostmeier from BibleTelling ministries on Aug. 3. It has been a great time of impactful ministry. More about these summer camps below....
Last Friday we also celebrated our last week of our 30-week discipleship class with the six leaders we've been working with in Hato Mayor. It was an unforgettable experience as we wrestled through all sorts of topics together. I know I learned a lot and was stretched by the experience. As we celebrated last week, the youth each shared which topics most impacted or stretched them. We are thankful to Vince Vaughn from Quarry Community Church for walking us through that amazing adventure.
That was really just the first lag of the discipleship journey, though. In October, we plan to start three new groups, sending those who just completed the class in groups of two to disciple others. We appreciate your prayers as we prepare for the next phase of this discipleship ministry.
