One Year in the Dominican Republic!!
I have been thinking a lot about important dates and milestones in our lives. It is funny how we remember things or sometimes what we remember. Some happy memories, some sad; some hard and some enjoyable...but all needed to help us be who we are. God uses all of these things we remember and lots of things we don't remember to shape us. To hopefully draw us closer to a daily walk, a relationship with Him. Our family works hard to draw closer to God and to help others do the same. Sometimes is by a prayer or words but a lot of times just by our example of living. We are all on this journey called life together and we are thankful that you are a part of our journey. Thank you for helping us as we work at intentionally helping others.
We arrived in Santiago to live last year on August 27th. In many ways, it seems like just the other day and in many ways, it seems like a lifetime. We have missed friends, family, births, celebrations, deaths, tears...all the normal things that happen in life. AND we have experienced those same things here. We have seen people surrender their lives to God, we have seen people be healed, we have seen people hear that God loves them for the first time ever, and we have seen people die and cry and loose things that are important to them. But the important thing is that we have seen God's faithfulness. He has provided for us. He has done this through many of you and we are very grateful!
