like to highly recommend a short term mission trip to anyone who may be
considering a calling to do so. I had an incredible time!
During our experience participating in construction
of a new church building and VBS
for children I really learned how far you can push yourself in
service. There were days we were tired but excited about what God is
doing in the lives of these people.
I especially enjoyed the
children of San Juan.
They are all very lovable and friendly. Although my Spanish speaking
ability is very limited the adults and children were patient and usually
we could communicate by using gestures.
I will never forget my
experience in the Dominican Republic. I went wanting to serve and
empower these people to serve each other through ministry but in turn I
received much more than I could ever give.
