I had the privilege of returning to the Dominican Republic again this year, and I have truly fallen in love with the Dominican people. We as a team were able to minister to these people by working in the local orphanages, running baseball clinics, and helping with worship services at the local church plant.

The crazy thing about the trip is that the Dominican people, in all of their poverty and struggling, are the ones who truly did the ministering. They taught me what it is to truly worship – to just focus your heart on God and not worry about what the people around me are thinking. These people, who have no tangible wealth, have a joy in Christ that is remarkable. If you have not had the opportunity to serve on a mission field, I challenge you to sign up to be a blessing now! God is waiting, and your life will be revolutionized!
