A precious memory from 2016's Dominican Republic team: Dr Beverly Byrd & Elizabeth Sablon praying with their patient. 19 of us are still grieved not to be ministering with dra Silvia Ricardo Martinez, Luke Society staff & local pastors this week because of Hurricane Maria. Colleagues there reported much flooding in the north, the east & in the capital of Santo Domingo in the south. Many homes were destroyed; power outages occurred... sadly with little U.S. news coverage. Major storm damage prevented safe, even possible, travel in-country, so wisdom 3 days ago called for cancellation of this year's mission. Dominicano friends request prayers in their ministry, clean up & rebuilding. Thank you, readers... until He returns or calls.
