Hi friends and family!
I am heading out again on a semi-long term missions trip to the Dominican, this time for three months!
As some of you may know, I went on a VERY impromptu trip in the beginning of December…so impromptu, the opportunity was presented to me on Sunday evening and I was on a plane at 6:45 the next morning! That trip was all God because if it was any me it would have been very thought through and planned out!
While I was on that trip I had the chance to get to know the full time Dominican missionary couple that lead our team. I knew before I left them that I wanted and needed to go back on a longer trip and provide them with as much help as I could. Some of the many things these guys run in the Dominican are a widows ministry, shoe distribution ministry, they go out present the gospel to prostitues, provide medical clinics to those who are in villages and might not have the opportunity to see a doctor…this is just some of the ministries they provide!
So that brings us to today, with the first part of April as my departure window I’m in need of two simple things.
1. PRAYER! I cannot stress how important having a prayer team back home is. To have a group of people praying for the people I will be helping and serving, that they will know and see God either for the first time or in a whole new way. Pray that I surrender everyday to God and follow the Spirit's leading. Pray that God gets the glory.
2. Financial Partnering. I would love to have you partner with me on this mission trip. This isn’t something that I can do on my own, I need a team who is willing to help. The total cost during the three months is $4000. Whether you are someone who believes in the mission but is unable to go on a trip, you are a long time missions vet, or you would just like to help; I would ask that you please prayerfully consider partnering with me…everything helps.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my letter and thank you in advance for the support you are willing to provide. :)
I hope to post updates during my trip, so please keep a look out on Facebook to see what I’m up to!
