I received this email below tonight from a friend of mine from the D.R. (who has just moved back to the US…). This was the church we attended when we were down there, International Baptist Church in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. I pray we may be able to do SOMETHING this week while we’re down there to help them or just to be a blessing to them!!
Dear family and friends:
Please be in special pray right now. Our home church’s meeting place just went up in flames. We’ve been members of the International Baptist Church for 8 years, and just this week in the midst of an expansion project, the whole auditorium was consumed. Here’s a link which show the photos:
The church is clinging to the verse in Job:
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the name of the LORD be praised.”
They are trusting God in this hour of testing, but I’m sure that the leadership especially would be blessed by encouragement, so I’m sending you all our senior pastor’s email. He’s bi-lingual, so please feel free to send him your messages of consolation, encouragement and assurances of your prayer support.
Pastor Miguel Nunez <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Your words of encouragement will be a blessing to him, and he can pass them on to the rest of the leadership there.
Here’s the church’s website if you’d like to know more about it: www.laibi.org
