Next week Johnny and I will fly to Hispaniola, the second largest island in the Caribbean. I was pretty sure I knew the name of the island, but I looked it up to be sure because I never use its proper name. Instead, I talk about the two nations that share the land — Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
The first part of our time will be a too-short trip to Haiti, where we will visit a couple of the ministries I’ve blogged about since the earthquake–Real Hope for Haiti Rescue Center and Heartline Ministries.
We’ll also visit a church that Bethlehem Baptist is partnering with to provide local homes and support for orphans. I hope you’ll visit Bethlehem’s Global Diaconate blog to read about the partnership program. And then I pray you’ll pray about how you and your church might be involved.
The second part of the trip will be in the Dominican Republic, climaxing with the Back to the Cross conference in Santo Domingo.
Please pray for us as we go–that we will have God’s eyes and heart and words for the people and situations we meet.
