Over the last few years, some great friends and brothers from First New Testament Church in Baton Rouge have been ministering in the Dominican Republic. We met and prayed about how we might work with them in this area. The poverty and spiritual darkness are beyond what you can imagine. There was a great need to bring running water to this village as they have never had it before. For years the government has been breaking promises to do this for them. We thought it would be such a great gift and witness if we could bring it in the name of Jesus Christ.
Word and Spirit provided the funds to purchase 2.1 miles of pipe and food for the outreaches. We went to the Dominican Republic with a team of 9 great men who love the Lord. Three churches were represented by these men. There, we worked with the villagers to dig the trench and lay most of the pipe. We had two nights of open-air meetings where the Gospel of Jesus Christ was preached and we saw a great amount of encouraging done with the pastors and local believers who are few in number.
This water project was a great witness of the Love of God for them and it was amazing to see so many who do not know God as their father give Him praise. Even the government officials gave thanks to God. The seed was watered, sown, and we were blessed to see a small harvest. We already have plans to go back as the Lord wills in the future. To God and our salvation, Jesus Christ, be all the glory. Amen. Please pray for the people in this area and thanks to all who support the ministry.
