Sister Olga Ramos Marcano reports about a recent short-term mission trip her team made to the Dominican Republic. Here is what she says “This short-term mission has made us more sensitive to the needs of others, including the people around us…. Our relationship with others cannot be the same. We will strive to be better human being; treat those around us with love, respect, better understanding, patience and be more tolerant.”
The proverb says, “love starts at home”. That is precisely how we started our missionary journey. // Dice el refrán que “el amor empieza por la casa”. Eso es precisamente como empezamos nuestra tarea misionera.
Al mirar nuestra nueva asignación a Colombia, nos emociona y alienta esta oportunidad que Dios nos da. // When we look at our new assignment to Colombia, we are excited and encouraged by the opportunity God is providing.
