Our Team Vision and Mission

Vision

Our Team's vision is to take Jesus at His word and be his witnesses to Jerusalem, Judea and the ends of the earth (Acts 1:8). We believe we are called as followers of Christ to not just be witnesses here in Friesland but to go wherever God is calling us.

Mission

We are heading to Jarabacoa Dominican Republic.  Our mission partner, Mission of Hope, is working with local churches in Jarabacoa to help with the needs of the church there.  They help connect the North American Church with churches in the Caribbean and that the partnership will be facilitated by them but the connections from here on out will be long lasting.  We will be doing two main things while we are in the Dominican. 

  1. Going out into the community to share the good news of Jesus and also learn more abundantly the culture from local people so we can have a better relationship with the church in the Dominican Republic.  

  2. We will also be helping build the outside structure of a one story home for a local mentor of an areas pastor who has been trying to have this house built for years but for lack of funds has not been able to move forward on this project. The cost of this project will be $1,500 above what it will take to send our short term missionaries. Any funds that are raised above our goal will go towards this project. 

One of the local pastors, Pastor Darrin spoke with earlier this year, who we will be working with, shared that their church prayed that God would send folks to help them share the good news of Jesus both financially and in person. We are excited to be a partial answer to that prayer and cannot wait to partner with them and God to share the good news about Jesus in word and deed.  

We are asking for people to partner with us in prayer and finances so that we can make this trip a reality.  Your partnership not only is helping our team but is also answering prayers of those prayed by the church in the Dominican.  We would be very grateful  if you partnered with us.  

Our Summer 2024 Team
