I have two big trips coming up this year.  Next month Liz & I head to Idaho for 12 days, and in July, the whole family heads to Ireland for an extended vacation/sabbatical.

All that to say that this short little 2-day trip to Santo Domingo has kind of snuck up on me.  Earlier this week I set Liz an email about an open house for us to look at and she asked how this would work with our trip on Sunday.  I had no idea what she was talking about.

Anyways, tomorrow afternoon, Liz & I are flying down to the DR after church to meet up with a bunch of US & DR Vineyard pastors. The main goal is for everyone to get to meet each other, and to come up with some plans/goals for the next 5 years.

In 2001 a few Vineyard pastors from NY went down for a week, to meet some people and begin praying about planting churches in the DR.  In the past 9 years, we have made some great connections and are excited about where God leads things from here.

Please be praying for our trip, that God would do some amazing things over the next 3 days.
