It all started when…

Ever since we started dating, we had talked about our desire to serve abroad; though we weren't sure of the possibility of this due to the difference in our choice of career paths. We love experiencing different cultures. After college, we got married and took our honeymoon trip to the Dominican Republic. Once there, we met with a friend of ours from college who took a job teaching 2nd grade at Doulos Discovery School in the mountain town of Jarabacoa. We had been supporting her monthly in this ministry position and brought her some cliff bars and dollar store prizes for her class. We shared with her our desire to live abroad, but how we were unsure if it would ever happen. She informed us, with a smirk, of the need from the school for a high school social studies teacher and a school nurse. We applied for the position on the flight home, we saw a door open and figured we might as well walk through it. As the interview process begun, we stayed calm and continued to walk through the doors that were opening before us, knowing it must be God. We soon found through plenty of prayer that this is where we were called to go and serve. We will be moving to Jarabacoa July 14th, 2019.
