The construction crew worked hard and made great progress on all of our projects! Our focus was to build a house from the ground up for Pastor Elias, his wife Elizabeth, and their three daughters (pictured above and below). He pastors the believers at Bethel Baptist Church in Matacaliche. In just two weeks, the foundation, walls, rafters, siding, wiring, doors, windows, roof, and front porch were completed, making this the best home in the neighborhood as a testimony for the church. Pastor Elias and his family will use the porch area for a small store on the front of their home to provide additional income and reach the community. We also continued work at Pastor Benito's church in Guaymate, Faith Baptist Church, where we installed windows in the church and in the Timothy Project Ministry (for more info, check out the links on the right). Finally, we helped with wiring and the roof on Pastor Raul's home in Guaymate. He and his wife Altagracia (pictured below) were very excited to move in!
The evangelism crew stayed busy as they spread the Gospel in private schools, public schools, the sugar cane villages where several of the pastors are sharing the Gospel, and surrounding neighborhoods. The team passed out thousands of tracts, shared the Gospel using crafts and rope tricks, and passed out food and tracts to the entire village of Matacaliche with Pastor Elias and his wife Elizabeth. We saw some people come to know the Lord as we went to door-to-door in the villages. On our last day, we were able to teach at and attend the Timothy Project Ministry on Saturday where over 180+ children came to learn about the Bible and hopefully one day serve alongside these great men and women of God.

We had the wonderful privilege to return to the Dominican Republic this year! Five churches were represented on this trip, one of them being our faithful partners in Christ, Adirondack Baptist Church led by Pastor Nate. During this trip, we helped to construct and complete a house for Pastor Elias, continued work at Faith Baptist Church and Pastor Raul's home, and evangelized in surrounding schools, sugar cane villages, and neighborhoods.
