Although we didn’t send a team to the Dominican in 2017, our connection remains strong. After sending teams two years in row, we felt the Lord saying that we were to wait until 2018 to go again. That didn’t stop us from corresponding and receiving regular updates as to the ongoing work at lighthouse Projects. There has been lots of planning around the launch of the project in Villa Altagracias. 2017 began to see mobilization on the vision for Villa Altagracias. Consruction has begun and many teams have already been working onsite. There was a strong fundraising effort to gather funds for the new Water purification system that is needed. This is one of the poorer areas of the DR and access to clean water isn’t readily available.
Christian and Felix from the Lighthouse came to be with us for a day and partnered with our team’s donut fundraiser for our trip in 2018. There were many other fundraisers and Lighthouse is pleased to now have the funds to go ahead with the water purification system!
We look forward to the next team that is going, hear their stories, and to be able to continue supporting the amazing Lighthouse mission.
