The OH Work and Witness team worked on the North Coast District Center and held evangelism activities at several churches in Santo Domingo. Even though it rained almost every day and almost all night long some nights, they were able to get accomplished what needed to be done.
The team started off with a pretty rough start with three of their team members not being able to come and discovering it just days ahead and on the same day of their travels.
The first day one of the men fell and hurt his ankle/foot and was not able to work at construction at all. God lead us to an American Doctor that had been practicing in the clinic for over 20 years. It was hard for Ken to not be able to work, but through the week God revealed some things to him.
The team worked hard at putting inner walls on the bottom floor of the District Center and the evangelism team visited several churches and loved on the children.
One day while the the children were working on their craft of creating their faces to show that they were wonderfully made, one girl put a sad face on her craft. Missionary Shirley Fischer talked with Yulie to find out why she was sad. Yulie had heart surgery when she was younger and now that she is 14 she still worries at night that she might die. The team surrounded her and prayed for her to ask Jesus into her heart and to give her peace.
This is beautiful Yulie with Matt. Yulie is almost 15
and has a heart problem.
The children from the team's church made a banner with their names on it for the children. The children put their names on a banner for the children at the OH church.
