Stand in Prayer: Dwell There

Ten of us are traveling from Beaverton the night of 7/29 to the Dominican Republic to work with a ministry there in the community of Rio Grande. We will be taking pounds and pounds of sports equipment and medications with us and hopefully LOVE that will weigh even more. Love packaged in our hearts, on display because of Jesus, and expressed across cultures as we travel from our comforts here to their discomforts there.  We will be reaching across cultures into the lives of these adults and children living in poverty who will be working alongside of us to construct the school where the children can come to be educated.  And what we need more than anything, any money or supplies, is your prayers for us to be so rooted in the love God has for us so that the people there will meet Jesus in our eyes, in our embraces, in our presence.  We need your prayers, like Paul prayed for the people in Ephesus, that they may meet the God who is able to do more than we ask or think or imagine through us.  Pray with us as we team up with the people there to make a difference in God’s kingdom representing you, the senders.
