Global Partner Update from the DR

By May 23, 2019 Uncategorized

Partner: The Garcías – La Misión – D.R.
What are 1 or 2 areas of celebration within your ministry?
We are very grateful for many things. Among those is that after all our time
serving in D.R., the church finally has a place to congregate outside of a house.
This location allows for more people to congregate together and allows for
multiple services to be implemented as the Lord leads.
In addition, we recently received the news that a pastor/friend in Florida will
donate his church’s radio station equipment to La Misión so we can implement
a Christian radio station in Dominican Republic. That is an amazing response
from God to prayer about precisely that! We pray that our small, yet passionate
congregation will continue to make a positive impact in this nation for the
glory of Jesus Christ.
We are so grateful for you…we share every achievement with you.
What are 1 or 2 areas of concern or uncertainty within your ministry?
For the past months the Lord opened doors for Camilo to have 1-2 hours a day
of consulting/translation opportunities with a U.S.-based firm. Although it’s
only a few hours, those opportunities have helped us meet our financial
obligations. Unfortunately those hours are gone now that the project has
ended. We pray and trust the Lord will open new doors as He considers best.
What are you excited about in this next season of ministry?
The development of new disciples and home-based Bible study groups
throughout different areas. There are more people opening their homes to
host these Bible studies and engaging their friends, family, and neighbors.

How can Sanctuary better bless, encourage, and equip you in this next season?
Thank you for asking! We are so blessed by this great congregation of
believers who don’t stand by, but instead acts. You’re family to us.
We appreciate your prayers, talking about our ministry with others, sending
ministry/discipleship material, and sending teams to this mission field to
serve with us.
How can we pray for you? (Please send to Mary for Global & Prayer Team)
– We will need to travel to Miami, FL. for Karla’s final appointment with
USCIS. Please pray for Karla’s citizenship process to be done swiftly and
successfully as we enter the final stage of that process and that her
interview goes well. We also appreciate your prayers so that we can find
a place to stay and transportation.
– Please pray for the church at La Misión. That the Lord continues to raise
them up as passionate and committed disciples within His body and
that their trust in the Lord continues to grow stronger as they follow
– We are getting ready to host the annual team from Sanctuary in
September. We pray that many people sign up and that all their
resources are provided by the Lord so they can come and experience
everything God has for them in the D.R.
– Please pray for our family…that we continue to seek God more and more
each day, for strength and direction always in every decision, that His
will remains always above our own desires, for direction with Marcelo’s
education as he enters High School, and for Karla’s continued
improvement with her health.
