Cutupu Project Update
The COVID-19 saga took a toll on our Cutupu project here in the DR. We had all our teams cancel and lost our project funds also. We are still praying for the $9,000.00 needed to complete the school facility for the 130 children attending in Cutupu.
Updates on Covid-19 Curfew in The Dominican Republic
We are going into the fourth month of the government imposed curfew here in La Vega. Businesses are beginning to open with some restrictions. Our students at La Vega Christian School finished the year online. Churches opened their doors for controlled fellowship and worship June 7th. The Rose of Sharon Church where we are active in ministry saw a good renewed attendance in spite of the obstacles of the last three months.
The Bridge English fellowship will continue meeting via Zoom until July. It is hoped that the University across the street will open up later this summer and the El Cafe Coffeehouse Ministry can start reaching out to the students again. Every one is still required to wear masks out in public, though not everyone is following these rules. Word of businesses closing down are starting to circulate. Certainly, it is not a time for the church to stop praying!
We hosted 12 stranded Guatemalan Missionaries for two months. The Guatemalan ambassador paid us a visit to check on them (in black suit).
