Dominican Republic Mission Trip and International Mission Update
I want to start by first apologizing for the lack of communication that has surrounded the mission trip to the Dominican Republic for this year. The decision not to return to the DR this year was made in July of 2018, and it has recently come to my attention that not everyone was communicated to about the change.
We love the DR and what God has done through the past mission trips there. We are so thankful for the hearts of our students and leaders and how much you care for the people of the Dominican Republic. Moving into the future, we want to continue cultivating that passion for God’s work around the world, and we believe that the best way to do that is to join up with one of First Pres’ ongoing Global Partnerships.
We recently welcomed Rev. Lydia Lockhart onto the First Pres team as our Pastor of Mission Engagement and have spent time asking which of First Pres's mission opportunities would be the best fit for students and their families. One possibility is joining the work that Lydia and the Mission Engagement team have begun in Guatemala. If possibility continues to develop, we will have more details in late February or early March about an upcoming trip.
Again, I apologize for the lack of communication and for any frustration, sadness or hurt that may have been caused.
If you have any questions or thoughts at all please feel free to contact us at any time.
