Mission Trip - Dominican Republic!

    We had postponed the trip last February due to pastor, Elsa Thomas (the minister at the IED church in Tamayo), having a difficult pregnancy.  Elsa and Jairo welcomed a healthy baby boy, Eliseo, on June 11.  Eliseo is Elisha in Spanish.  He weighed 8 1/2 lbs! Both first-time parents are adapting to having a baby in their lives.  Elsa shares that God is showing her every day how to be a good mother and that she loves her son very much!  They, as well as the IED church in Tamayo, are excited to have us visit on November 8-14.

    We are committed in taking this mission trip, but have had a couple of people drop out due to the change in the date. If you are interested in going to learn about a different culture and to meet the lovely people of Tamayo, Dominican Republic, to see what God is doing there, please talk to Lisa Crismore. 

    The Mission and Education Teams are planning a Bingo/Silent Auction on October 5th from 6:30-8:30pm to raise funds for our partnership in the Dominican Republic.  There will also be a dining fundraiser at Chipotle later in October.  Save the date and look for more details later on!
