Going to the Dominican for Missions

Posted in Tina | No Comments »

Dear Family and Friends,

I am excited to tell you that I have been given a great opportunity to join our church’s first mission trip in going to the Dominican Republic this summer! (June 15-22)I will be working with Crosspoint’s children ministry team to teach and present the Gospel to hundreds of children. I will also have the opportunity to visit an orphanage that our church has sponsored and love on the girls that are dwelling there.

As I prepare my heart and mind to go on this trip, I ask that you would consider partnering with me in a couple of different ways:

1) Prayer support: As we know the power of prayer is mighty. I need many to keep us in prayer before our Great God for safety, health, wisdom, and spiritual regard for the needs of all we encounter. Also, on a personal level, this will be the first time both Wayne and I are leaving Emmalee and traveling internationally. We know she is in good hands, but emotionally this will be difficult for us to not being with her. Prayers for comfort and peace during our time away will be greatly appreciated, too.

2) Financial Support: I have to raise $1,500 to attend this trip. I have already placed a deposit of $150 down. I know times are tough right now, but a small amount from each of you will add up quickly and will help me to make a huge impact on our world in a mighty way! A convenient way to give is online! Go to and click on the “Giving” tab and include my name in the notes section.

3) Encouraging Support: My team and I will be battling with a lot of doubt, fear, and trepidation about attending this trip. We know these things are not of God, but they do seem to cloud our view of the greater things God has in store for us. If you could write notes of encouragement to me personally or to my team, this would greatly help. Please consider words that will keep us focused on God and others. I would like to have these letters so we can read them during the trip or before as we prepare to go. When you send them, please mark when they are to be read (i.e. “Before” or “During”) and address to me (“Tina”) or to the “Team”. I think this will be a great blessing to all involved, God’s word will not return void.

I am extremely excited to see what God has in store for the mission’s trip team. I know we will have our work cut out for us, but God promises to be the very strength we need. Thank you in advance for your support and love. Please take some time to pray and consider how you and your family could best support and fill out the form below and return it in the included envelope.

Wayne and Tina at the gameAfter hitting the Hockey game last week, Tina and I have been discussing the finer points of the game. She says that she would love to go to some games AND that’s it’s probably the most action packed sport she’s seen… so who’s in for a Lightning game?

The iPhone Photoshop App is great!
