CommunitiesTrinity Lutheran/Impact Ministries serves Iglesia Roca de Salvacion
March 19th, 2014
On March 8 to the 15, a group of 17 people traveled to the Dominican Republic to serve in a small village called Consuelito. Vicki Kolsrud and Pattie Juarez were the trip leaders for World Servants. Pastor Ruth Berenice worked hard to prepare for the team’s arrival and the church family did a lot of work ahead of time. The goal was to help put a new roof onto the old and new parts of the building. It was amazing to see just how much work had been done since the first team left last July.
In just five days the team was able to put the first layer of flooring down in the new rooms of the building. The team also helped as the locals added two more layers of bricks to hold the new roof. The trusses for the new roof went up and finally the last day the new sheeting was added.
The team had a chance to do outreach with almost 100 children in the community with Vacation Bible School. (Kid’s Club) Each day home visits were done with the goal of praying for the families and sharing the love of Jesus.
Pastor Bernice is investing in that small village and God is lifting up families to be light in the darkness. It was a blessing to be a small part of what God is doing there.
