Hope Chapel's youth pastor, Bill Rose, his wife Whitney, and our friend Charles, are heading off to the beautiful country of the Dominican Republic (D.R.) on a mission trip with Foursquare Missions International (FMI)! This is the first mission trip for Bill - and his first time going outside the USA!
This will be a survey trip to discover how to better help the Haitian population in the D.R.
The Haitian community in the D.R. has been growing because of the affects of the recent earthquake. Haitian refugees enter the country looking for a new life but because they are the minority they experience a lot of discrimination.
We will be visiting some churches in the D.R. and assisting in a mission which helps the Haitian community by meeting practical needs and providing spiritual support to Haitian pastors and their churches.
Please keep us in prayer as we scout out the land for the work of missions! We return in 1 short week, on Thursday, October 6th.
