Ben Arnold attended a Dispatch trip to the Dominican Republic this past February. We had a chance to ask him a few questions about his experience, takeaways and ways he is paying it forward. His story is shared with you below!
If you’re interested in next year’s trip to the Dominican, just send us an email and we can get you more information!
What did you take away from your Dispatch trip?
I think there were three key take-away’s for me:
First; The trip leader (Duane) talked with us Saturday night (our first night in the DR) to give some context around how shockingly different it might be for us attending church with the Dominicans with respect to cultural, language and socio-economic differences. Any differences that might have been noticeable completely became irrelevant the second we started worshipping with the congregation. We sang, “Gloria a Su Nombre…” (Glory to Your Name) and were instantly united under the same God.
