Hello, friends! I’m faced with the attempt to summarize our 2020 global mission efforts in a world turned upside down……. may you truly feel our thanks radiating off the page as you read!
We are so encouraged by your support of our trip, virtual events, and campaigns during 2020. In addition, our Board of Directors completed a Strategic Planning process and will continue to think creatively about serving remotely until we are able to return to Sosua with a team. Your prayers are a priceless component of that encouragement- prayers for a return to health and peace for the planet, and wisdom for Sisters Village regarding our future — on-the-ground or from the US.
We are participating in #GivingTuesday again this year. Watch for more details for “Coffee from the Caribbean” on Dec 1st at 8:00 am. Join us for for an update from Ángelica Castillo, from her physical therapy office. Door prizes and incentives for bringing a friend! Please enjoy these pictures along with our deep gratitude. Dios te bendiga! #Godsloveinaction
Sisters Village is officially 1 year old this week! It’s been a year of lots of learning for me (mostly learning how to use Weebly, and I’m sure I’ve only scratched the surface). The Board meetings have been part of the learning.....sharing my experience in the DR and brainstorming ways to spread awareness. In October, I was able to meet with our partners in person, presenting to 24 Dominican therapists on treatment of urinary incontinence, and firming up a plan to provide sewing machines to local women with skills in garment design.
We have a regular presence on Facebook and Instagram, some initial fundraising success, and in the planning stages for our first community event this Spring. November 3-11, 2018 will be our first official trip to Sosua. Potential team members are being recruited and planning for a PT seminar on Osteoporosis is in motion. We appreciate any and all support....sharing our website, prayers, joining the November team or donations of any amount. Stay tuned for specific details regarding our inaugural event coming in a few months. Muchas gracias and Dios te bendiga!
