Softball Mission Trip

On June 29th we took a girls softball team (girls from the area) to the Dominican Republic to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, build relationships, grow spiritually, and yes play softball. The team was coached by Stacy Sharp, who did a great job of putting the team together, encouraging them, and leading them in a Godly way. The team was able to play games in the city of Santo Domingo and also in sugarcane villages like Los Montones. Which is a major contrast to what we are used to. After each game we were able to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we had the privilege of seeing many people come to know Jesus as Savior. The team also spent time at a girls orphanage, where they got to make a craft, put on a little softball clinic, and most importantly love and hug on the girls in Jesus name. Also one of the days the team went shopping and bought food for a hundred and twenty families for a village called La Laura. This is a very poor village that doesn’t have a church yet. We were able to share the Gospel with them, pass out the food, and pray with the families individually. Please pray that God would move in the heart of someone that would have the desire to plant a church in La Laura. And the resources to help that community. Praise the Lord for a great trip to the DR!!!
