Martes

Tuesday (Martes en Espanol) we continued construction progress on the church, working alongside the Hatitian people and doing our best to break down the communication barriers that exist.  The local women made us a lunch of rice, noodles, avacaodos, and some meat (pretty sure it was chicken and it was quite tasty).  We did a lot of concrete work at the end of the day and managed to fit in a few games of futbol with the local children as well.  The reception from the people here has been amazing and it is very rewarding to see the impact a few people from Sioux Falls can have on our brothers and sisters in the Dominican.

Erich Schaffhauser did a great piece on the language gap, which ran tonight on KELO. Rather than trying to share our day in text, check it out below and watch for more photos to come!

Putting Their Money Where Their Mouth Is

Sending this team to the Dominican Republic would not be possible without the support of some great organizations. We hope to make this an annual trip, so give some thought so sending yourself or one of your employees next year!

A big thanks to the following organizations who have stepped up financially as well as by sending staff:

Blend Interactive
Click Rain
KELO-TV
First Bank & Trust
First PREMIER Bank
Lynn, Jackson, Shultz & Lebrun
Sunshine Foods
University of Sioux Falls

SO, WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?

Dispatch is a couple of guys who hope to inspire and equip those in the Sioux Falls business community to answer Christ’s call to serve those in need. Our first project is a week-long mission project designed to get the Sioux Falls business community involved in overseas service work and by doing so, touch the lives of others and create a spirit of service at home. Dispatch is focused towards business owners who want to serve and empower their employees to join them.
