Joanna's Missions Trip to the Dominican Republic

Dear Friends & Family,

I would like to share with you about the opportunity the Lord has given me to serve in the Dominican Republic this summer on a short term mission trip! I will be part of a Word of Life Missions team called Student Fusion. Through Student Fusion young people from around the US have the opportunity to minister on various fields for a couple of weeks!

Our trip will be from July 5th - 25th. The first several days will be spent at the Word of Life Bible Institute for training. We will be taught and equipped with resources such as: adapting to a different culture, sharing the Gospel, effectively sharing personal testimonies, and preparing for ministry. This will also be a great opportunity for our team to grow together and prepare for the opportunities that the Lord will provide.

On July 11th we will fly to the Dominican Republic for two weeks of ministry. We will work with a team of missionaries from the Dominican, ministering in a variety of ways in order to share the Gospel with the people of this very needy country. We will have the opportunity to help run a week of camp, work with local Bible Clubs, visit an orphanage, partner with Compassion International, and serve in a needy Haitian village! We will use sports, drama, music and open-air evangelism to present the Gospel. The door is wide open to share Christ!

I am writing to invite you to be a part of what God is going to do through this team in the Dominican Republic. I am currently putting together a team of people who will support the work financially as well as through prayer. I am looking to raise $2123 for the flight and trip expenses (food, lodging, travel insurance, transportation, ministry funds, etc.).

Will you consider joining my financial team by giving a special tax-deductable gift toward my goal? Please know that your investment will be used to advance the Gospel among young people in the Dominican Republic!

I have posted a link below to the site to give on or to download a support slip to mail in if your heart feels led to be apart of my team to reach youth in the Dominican Republic. I would love to share more, if you have any other questions that I can answer. Thank you for your consideration. I’m excited to see how the Lord will lead me through this experience and opportunity!
