Pastor Nate Petersen and members from Adirondack Baptist Church were able to partner with Paraklete to take a construction trip to the Dominican Republic. There, Pastor Nate and his team worked with Pastor Aramis, a national pastor, to expand his church, Grace Baptist Church. Pastor Aramis (pictured right) is one of 6 pastors discipled through the Timothy Project Ministry, started by Pastor Jair Muñoz, dedicated to teach young people about the Scriptures.

Pastor Aramis with his wife Julissa
and their son Miseal
Turned Pastor Aramis' apartment on back of church into a classroom
Built a new apartment on top of the classroom
Installed a gravity-fed water tank to plumb the new apartment
Before Pastor Nate and his team arrived, Pastor Aramis and members from his church had already removed the roof of the old apartment on the main floor of the back of the church. Pastor Nate and his team then remodeled the original apartment into a children's classroom and added a second story onto the classroom to make an apartment for Pastor Aramis and his family. Pastor Nate and his team worked through blisters, sweat, and hard labor to build the new apartment, which included laying a floor, building walls, building the roof, roofing the structure, building a stairwell to the second story, wiring, plumbing, and finalizing both the apartment and the classroom.
Hard work led to great results, and by the end of the trip, Pastor Aramis and his wife had a new, private apartment, and the children had their own classroom. Pastor Nate and his team greatly impacted this body of believers, and we look forward to partnering with them again in the future to aid more churches in the Dominan Republic to reach people for the Lord. We are so thankful for Pastor Nate and his shared vision with us to support national pastors as they grow and plant other churches pastored by nationals.
