What a busy couple of weeks it has been in my life! Between writing my first blog, youth camp and preparing for my second missions trip. I am currently boarding a flight to Miami (followed by a 6 and half hour lay over), then I board my final flight to Santo Domingo. We have so many amazing things planned and I will not share…oh who am I kidding…I will share one thing. BUT, the rest will be saved for when I come back home.
Last year, my team and I traveled to Dominican Republic as our first missions trip as a church. Part of active week was conducting a youth camp along side with a local church in Punta Cana. On one of the days (I cannot exactly remember the specific day), we were notified that a group of girls had arrived to come and participate with us. We were then notified that these girls were rescued from Human trafficking. This year they asked us to come and spend sometime with the girls at the home in which they now reside.
We are so excited that we get to have the opportunity to spend one on one time with these young women. Getting to know them; laughing, sharing stories and just getting to know each other on a personal basis.
My sneak peek of this exciting week ends here because I know that I will have plenty more to share when I return. So for now please keep me and the team in your prayers. Photos and stories will be posted upon my return.
