This past Tuesday Kelly Campbell and Amanda Pennington left for La Canita. Today, they are working alongside the women of La Canita to create the pieces of the new Te Veo jewelry line that we saw at Day of Beauty.
Tonight Angie Ham, our Accord, Inc President and volunteer on the US Centro Te Veo Build Team, flies overnight to join our Dominican Centro Te Veo Build Team. She will work alongside them in stewarding our next steps in the building of this women’s empowerment center on the border of La Victoria and La Canita.
On Monday, June 6th Angie Johnston and Mercy Tucker will lead a mother/daughter trip with 7 women and 7 teens, in a week of bonding, working, laughing, cooking and sweating. They will be joined by Project I See You’s first interns: Jordan Tisdall and Johannah Johnston, who will be staying for a month of leadership development and learning about material poverty with spiritual growth. We are so delighted and prayerful for these two young leaders!
The following week starts ten days of two youth groups, one from Denver and one from Kansas City, joining the work of Project I See You in La Victoria and La Canita! We are overjoyed to be connecting these 30 people with Dominican life and God’s work in these communities. There will be youth rallies, volleyball games, working on Centro Te Veo, and a focus on a relationship with God that transcends culture and language. Telly DeBoart, Susy Newman, Tammy Breeser, and Dan Wagner will be leading these teams.
We can’t believe all that has come together for this summer! Our Dominican community is more than hospitable and we are honored to be with them in the journey of seeing and being seen by the Living God.
Will you join us in prayer for this packed full month? And prayerfully consider being a regular giver to Project I See You as we launch this month of ministry in the Dominican Republic?
