Welcome to the 2011 Onalaska Church of Christ Dominican Republic Missions Ministry web log. This site is to keep you informed about our mission, preparations for our trips and communications with the missionaries in the Dominican Republic.

2011 Visit to the DR
The team for the 2011 visit occurred between February 16 and February 22. Reports are being provided in new posts, one post for each day of the trip. We will soon be making plans for our next visit to the Dominican Republic, tentatively scheduled for the summer of 2012.

Anticipate :: Devo #4

Read 1 Peter 1:17. What does it mean to live in “reverent fear” of God and in reverence for the mission of his kingdom? Can an attitude of reverence make a difference in our work for the mission in the Dominican Republic?

The lesson this week suggests this for understanding and practicing reverence: Be still and listen. Find a time when you can be alone with the word and read Psalm 23. This beautiful chapter tells us in several ways that God is in control in all circumstances. Prepare now for quiet times on the trip. Bring a devotional, develop a scripture reading plan, make a prayer list. Whatever will help you maintain that feeling of reverence.

Ask God to prepare our hearts for times on the trip when we will be still and wait and for those times that we will sit and listen to those who have something to teach us.

Pray for Karen and Sandi as they prepare the December 20 meeting. And pray for the March group as we listen and learn from their leading.
