Ian + Anna in the DR 2014: next stop, Santiago

reunion in the dr 2013

At this very moment we are taking off from Boston, and by this evening, we will be settling in to the dorms we will call home for the next week, ready to serve alongside the Vargas family and G.O. Ministries staff. We wanted to take a moment to thank all of our supporters. This trip would not be possible without you. And while you are not physically with us in the DR, your presence is felt. You are making a difference. Thank you.

And we do have one more request of you. Please continue to pray for the trip. Pray for our team's health and safety, especially with chikungunya buzzing around the country. Pray for our impact in the DR through the medical clinic, construction work (most likely painting houses), field day with the kids, and overall relationship building. And pray for the Vargas family's ongoing ministry. Every day they do hard work in a place of great need. They exude such great joy, but it is not an easy road, and they can use all of the support and encouragement we can provide.

Thanks again for all your support, and stay tuned for updates when we get back!

P.S. Since we're radio silent for the week, if you want to know we made it safely (Moms, this is for you), G.O. posts team photos within 24 hours of our arrival.
