We thank God for those of you who are praying for us and with us. You are a blessing.
DR trip – We praise God for a fruitful trip to the DR! Edify’s Tiger Dawson visited earlier this month with a group who visited various Edify schools, an Esperanza water project, the CURE International Hospital and learned more about HOPE International’s work in the DR by visiting an Esperanza bank.
Education System and government- The educational system in the Dominican Republic is in poor condition and has been for years, partially due to the minimal amount of government spending in this area. As we await the presidential elections on May 20, we pray that God would instill wisdom and integrity in the future leaders, and give them the desire and the means to improve the education system. We also pray for peace and well being for the Dominican people, especially for the youth who will grow up to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Travis and Cristen – We praise God for the opportunity to live and work in a foreign country. The Dominican cultural is extremely relational which we greatly appreciate. We are learning so much from the relationships we have here. We ask that God would continue to help us develop and strengthen relationships with friends, field partners, and each other and that He would be glorified in the process.
