This year, we are unable to send a team to the Dominican Republic. In order to take the trip, we need a certain number of adult applicants and we did not have a sufficient number. On the one hand, this is disappointing; on the other, it is an opportunity to explore what is the best model of this mission opportunity for our diocese. We will continue to financially support Cristo Salvador, our partner congregation, and sent over $2000 to ensure they can hold a Vacation Bible School and make necessary repairs to the church building and preschool. We are still in communication.
We will definitely run the trip next year and look forward to a team composed of both previous members and new folks of a variety of ages.
