Family in the Dominican Republic

District Superintendent Sam Royappa and Rev. Maribel Celiz will co-lead a Volunteer-in-Mission trip to Dominican Republic, September 23 - 30, 2013, with a total of 19 volunteers, clergy and lay, 16 from WI representing 8 UM churches and 3 from Puerto Rico. The mission includes renovation of a Free Methodist Church building, training two clergy gatherings with Live The Fruit of the Spirit bible study in Spanish, multicultural events with Spanish-speaking families, and a day of sight-seeing. The team will appreciate your prayers for their travel, safety, mission work and relationship building locally and globally. The primary missional purpose of this VIM trip is to continue to strengthen the Latino/Hispanic Ministries here in WI.
