Our most recent trip to DR was for the annual update of interview information and pictures of participants in the Kingsview Sponsorship Program. A small team of four, Lowell & Lois Brown, Program Directors, and Pastor Darrin & Sharon Lindsay worked diligently in very hot conditions for April, to make sure all of the contact information we need and pictures that sponsors want were up-to-date.
We had lots of fun on the trip, too, spending a day in Santiago with a group of university students (some of the group pictured, right) as they celebrated the end of exams in the big city. It was a pleasure and a privilege to have a whole day with this wonderful group of young leaders.
There was lots to celebrate, too, as the Manantial de Vida Free Methodist Church in Esperanza marked 5 years with their new building and in Jaibon, a family whose house had burned down moved into a brand new house that was built in part through contributions from Canada, and in part with local skilled labour and volunteers.
2015 also marks the 10th Anniversary of the Kingsview Sponsorship Program! And we intend to celebrate — the first weekend in October — stay tuned for more details!
