Plant A Church
// Jeanne DeTellis
On March 21, officially the first day of spring, a group of us stood with our contractor, Francesco Martin, to view the construction site of a church, school, and memorial garden in Los Castillos, Dominican Republic.
The eye is an amazing part of the body. Standing on the land where we want to see this campus built, our eyes imagine this land to be used for the glory of God. But, the mind can question our faith as to where will the finances come from, and whom has God called to be the spiritual leaders. We stand in faith and call upon God to lead us all the way.
We rejoice today, because we can write a check to begin construction—assured that God will speak to His people to participate in building the Kingdom of God in Los Castillos. We rejoice again, because we see young people with lives changed and with a call to preach the Word among the potential leadership for Los Castillos.
Today, we are taking things step by step— trusting and knowing God will lead us and provide. I want to express my grateful heart to each friend of God who has already sent in a financial gift to be part of the first payment. ~Jeanne DeTellis
