Sorry you haven’t heard from us for a few days! We arrived on Monday Night at Escuela Caribe in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic.
Escuela Caribe is a boarding school from high-risk American Teenagers and we have an opportunity to impact them with the love of Christ along side the staff members here who pour into them everyday.
Since Monday Night, Foster Christy (a KBM speaker) was here with us and taught us about Walking in the Holy Spirit and Shattering Strongholds of sin in our lives. Last night we had a great group prayer time of confession and healing as a whole team. Foster left this morning to go back to the States.
This morning we woke up and went on a great hike. We boulder hopped up a river and swam under waterfalls. Casi, one of the girls on the team did it all with a cast on her arm (she didn’t swim, just waded and sat in the water). We had an physically exhausting BLAST of a good time. We just finished lunch and are leaving in about 30 minutes to spend the next few days in a Dominican Community called Majaguita. We will be doing some physical labor on some projects there and tomorrow morning and Saturday morning we will be leading VBS for about 100-150 kids that live in the area. We will be sleeping in the community and will NOT have internet access (which has been spotty here, that is why we haven’t written anything in a few days). We’ll communicate when we get back on Saturday with more info and pictures.
Please be praying for our time in Majaguita!
Also, pray for the team. We are growing together and God is using us each and collectively to touch the lives of kids and students. Pray that we will all be growing and developing into Kingdom Laborers.
Finally, if any of you have signed up for the daily email with our posts to this blog and our TLI tweets, we just noticed this morning that that email was not going out for some reason. We will try to correct that when we return on Saturday.
Blessings to you all,
The Experience Team from Jarabacoa, DR
