A church in RSJ.

20 06 2010

The week after Evan and I got here, another family joined our mission team in the DR; Ronald and Rosi Mena, and their son Kevin. They are from Costa Rica, and their ministry focus is on the adults in RSJ. I hope that all of you get the chance to meet them at some point, because they are just pretty stinkin’ awesome. They are incredibly hard workers, and have been such a great support for us, even though they have only been here about the same amount of time as we have. We have been, and will continue to be, working with them a lot, since we are ministering to the children in RSJ, and them to the adults.

All that is to say that the Lord has put it on the hearts of the missionaries here to start a church in Rio San Juan. I believe it has been a long time coming, but it has been difficult because of a lack of missionaries available for the job. Ronald and Rosi and us, along with a lot of help from the interns and groups, have been out in the community of RSJ getting to know the people, and spreading the God’s word and the news about the new congregation. Finally the time has come, and next Sunday will be the first service of the church.

I wanted to share this with you so that you can all keep this huge job on your hearts and in your prayers. There are also quite a lot of important decisions to be made, as far as what the congregation of believers should look like here. It will be an especially stressful time for the Mena’s, I would think, and I appreciate all of your support! I will keep you updated on how it goes 🙂
