Thank you to everyone who prayed for Jim Britt's trip to the Dominican Republic earlier this month. Although the churches he visited are not formally associated with Sovereign Grace Ministries, they are dear partners in the gospel and we count it a privilege to come alongside them in their ministry.
These are some highlights Jim shared with us upon returning from his trip:
- Several meetings with Tomás Martinez and other leaders from Iglesia Cristiana Oasis (ICO), the church that hosted him on this trip, to discuss gospel-centered ministry, outreach to Haiti, leadership training, and other aspects of ministry
- Preaching twice at ICO and once at its sister church in Santiago
- Teaching Sunday School instructors at ICO about infusing every lesson with the gospel
- Leading a marriage seminar at ICO for 100 couples about the gospel and reoccurring marriage issues
- Speaking about grace-motivated service to faculty at King's Christian School, a 400-student day school operated by ICO
- Meeting with Miguel Núñez, pastor of Iglesia Bautista Internacional, to talk about plans for a conference that C.J. Mahaney, Dave Harvey, and Jeff Purswell will speak at this summer
If you give to our Mission Fund, please know that your support plays a significant part in our ability to train and equip pastors internationally. Jim received significant gratitude from the churches he was able to care for during his trip, and that gratitude extends to you as well.
