Team: West Florida Baptist Association
Written by: Forrest S.
God expresses His love to us in many ways. Sometimes, it’s how the mission team serves the people of Carrizal. Other times, it can be how the kids respond to teams returning year after year to invest Christ into the people here. One of our team members has made several trips to the Dominican Republic, and this week has been somewhat of a family reunion for him. Years ago, he connected with a young boy, and he was hopeful to see him again this week. Today, one of the teenagers showed up on site with a great surprise for him… it was his buddy! The joy of reconnecting was such a blessing. Discussing what God has been doing in their lives was even better.
We often wonder what impact we make through short term mission trips. Seeing the pure joy of two friends, connected by a common love for Christ, share a few moments together after 2 years of not seeing each other was proof enough that an eternal difference is being made and God is at the center of it all!
