God has led us to a unique opportunity to serve with Makarios International in the Dominican Republic. This process started in 2007 when we began sponsoring two children who attended the Makarios school. Then, in 2010, we started praying intentionally about our future and seeking the Lord regarding how we could serve Him with our lives. We were willing to change our location and vocation if that’s what He was leading us to do.
In the summer of 2011, we went on a mission trip with our church to serve with Makarios in the Dominican Republic. After that trip, we knew we wanted to become more involved with their ministry in the D.R., but we had no idea that the Lord would move us there so quickly. In the Spring of 2012 we were contacted by Makarios and offered a position. After several weeks of praying, we said YES!
We are excited about serving together as a couple. Our roles will consist of being the host couple and staff shepherds. Makarios coordinates short-term work teams and interns throughout the year and we will be their guides during their time serving the ministry. We will also provide one-on -one and group discipleship of the Makarios staff living in the Dominican Republic.
