Together in Mission & Ministry
Missions Spotlight: Dominican Republic

When you go on a mission trip you learn how to lay bricks and how thankful you are for having a house. During Spring Break, Lance Millsaps and Abbie Johnson, our Student Ministry leaders, took a group of high schoolers and middle schoolers to the Dominican Republic. One of the things I learned was that most people in the United States take having a house and eating for granted. During the trip I saw that the people in the Dominican Republic are thankful to have just one meal a day. They were so thankful that I couldn’t help feeling guilty for having three meals a day—every day!

 

During the trip, I became very connected to God. Every night, our group would meet together in this bigger room, and we reflected on the day and discussed what would happen tomorrow. During these meetings I thought about the material differences that the people in the Dominican Republic have compared to the things I have. I felt bad for not being very thankful. After these meetings, we went back to our rooms and even though my bed was not comfortable, it felt like the most relaxing thing in the world because I had worked hard all day.

 

We went into the villages almost every day of the week and laid bricks for the people that lived there. They were very thankful to have us work there. My job was to mix the cement in the street and fill the buckets. Then we would pass the buckets along a bucket line and pour the cement into a pillar. This job was very hard because it was very hot and mixing the cement was hard on my back.

 

It was also hard for me to see the living conditions the people. I never thought there were people living this way before seeing it with my own eyes. But, although they were very poor, they were so thankful for what they had. I felt like God was telling me to be more thankful for the things I have.

 

The mission trip involved a lot of hard work but there were plenty of times when we had fun. Close to where we stayed there was an ice cream store that we went to plenty of times. There was also a pool and a basketball court. I was surprised at how different this area was from the place where we worked each day. 

 

I already know that I want to go again next year for and I even chose Spanish as a subject for school this fall. I hope I become good at it so I can easily communicate with the people when I go back. God showed me how thankful these people are and how I should be more thankful for what I have. I need to use the things I have to spread the Word of God to other people.
