Here is the latest update from the Perrotto family and their ministry in the Dominican Republic.
In the past few updates, we told you that there were going to be some changes here within our mission team. Up until a recent announcement, our assignment was still yet to be determined, but we remained confident that God has us here for a purpose. Our former site leaders are moving out of the leadership of the Envision Mission and into a different branch of ministry. Brandon and Bethany Nutter are now the site leaders and our role will be to work in support of them, and along the C&MA church in the DR to help them grow their ministry to reach more people with the Gospel.
Through these past few months, we learned more than ever what it means to wait on the Lord. I can’t say it is easy, but I trust the He knows more about what we need than we do. I am thankful for the people he has put in our lives during that time who encouraged us and walked alongside us. I also want to thank all of you for your prayerful support and messages of encouragement. We needed it these past few months more than ever.
Our upcoming schedule
We are in the preparation stages for hosting 19 short term mission teams in Santiago this summer. These teams are coming from all over the U.S. and they will be helping the DR churches with projects that they would have a difficult time getting accomplished otherwise. Through this process, the churches who come and serve will not only have a tremendous impact in the DR, but will return to serve in a new way in their home churches. As for our responsibility, it will still be to facilitate the work that the teams do when they come, with a few more added responsibilities.
Please pray with us…
Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for your faithfulness, your kindness, your gentleness and your willingness to be involved with all the little details of our lives. We praise and thank you for the plan that you have in mind for each one of us and how your grasp around us cannot be shaken. Please bless all the missionaries here and around the world in the ways that only You know they need. Please guide us as we prepare to host mission teams to do your work here in the DR. We pray that your work will be accomplished in and through all who come here to serve. In Jesus’ name Amen.
Thank you all so much for your faithful support!
Matt, Teri, Alec, Marcus, Ellah, Madelyn and Isaac
