What has transpired in our lives of living in the Dominican Republic over an 8 year period (2005-2013), is that we developed a deep love, admiration, burden and respect for our host culture and we began to realize that the Lord called us to rely on Him more, sacrifice more and go deeper into the culture so that we can share Him in new and exciting ways.
So, with eyes lifted on the Lord and with hands clasped together, we lovingly walk alongside the materially poor Haitians and Dominicans on the north coast of the D.R.! Our own broken-ness stares us in the face, but we aren't afraid to let the Lord God shape and mold us in this new journey. He's BIG enough to handle our smallness.
