Back in the Dominican Republic

Chritmas2012After 16 days of visiting family and friends in SC and VA for Christmas, I returned home with only a week to get ready for my trip back to Sosua in the Dominican Republic.
The last few days were really hectic trying to pack and remember everything that needed to be done before leaving the US for 2 months.
With only 30-45 minutes sleep, Clay, my step-son, got me to the airport in time for package checks, security, and 30 minutes to relax before boarding. I left Tampa at 7:00 a.m. for Miami where I had a 4 hour layover and then it was on to Puerto Plata where I was welcomed by my friends and co-worker in the Kingdom, Rick, Julia, and Lauren.
After a few stops, I arrived at my apartment and proceeded to unpack until I could stay up no longer. Praise the Lord for a wonderful night of good sleep.
Yesterday, Barbara Sucher (Rick’s wife)┬ácame home from the hospital, so I walked up to visit her for a while. Later Rick, Julia and I went to the dedication of the new and only pregnancy crisis center in this area. The Lord had laid it on the hearts of Melissa and Tony Luther who are also missionaries in this area. Melissa had shared this at our lady’s Bible study when I was here this past summer. What a privilege it was to be at the birth of this new ministry. Praise the Lord for the people He sent to help them remodel the place and for those who supported the work financially.
Today, I am going to a lady’s Bible study with a group from OceanSide Christian Fellowship that was just established a couple of months ago. There will be some ladies there that I know and a few that I don’t know.
Please continue to pray that the Lord will work through me to do His will.
