Dear Friends of our ENCUENTRO ministry,
God is at work in the Dominican Republic.
More than 220 local pastors, youth and church leaders and their families recently attended a retreat in the Dominican Republic where Ernesto and Marina encouraged them to keep reaching their communities for Christ.
"It was a blessing for us to serve our Dominican brothers and sisters. I had the opportunity to minister in private to at least five women who needed to talk about their struggles. A young mother felt that it was God who brought her to this place. Because in every session God spoke to her and she knows now that God has a plan for her life," says Marina.
Since many of the pastors don't have formal training, these retreats are a way for them to learn more about the Bible and develop messages they can preach in their churches.
Many people renewed their commitment to Jesus, some accepted Him for the first time and many others came for healing.
Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic; especially for the women and young girls. Many of them have few options and end up in prostitution.
Thank you for your support so we can minister to those in need!
