A Note from Pastor Rafe

Well the school year is winding down and many transitions are getting ready to take place. It seems as soon as school is over people begin to move around. People change jobs, move, take trips and everything can seem to be in flux.

Many of you have been asking me about my plans and my family. My youngest graduates, my wife Amy is leaving her job and coming south to stay and we have a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. My June will be in great flux. Today I leave for two weeks of vacation that will include the graduation and a friend's wedding. Then I will be at our Florida Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church for 5 days. After being back here for a week, we will be off on the mission trip. Just before the mission trip we move my youngest to Tallahassee and just after the mission we finish the move here.

I know we have others in our congregation who are moving away too, and we have staff that are transitioning. This Sunday we will take time to thank all of these friends and pray for God's blessings to go with them.

The temptation when people are transitioning and when the pastor is away, is to subconsciously believe things are not happening or slowing down. Nothing could be further from the truth. Things are gearing up, more is happening, there are great ministries for you to be part of and support with your service. This is our chance to do more not less!

Dominican Mission News

Have you ever wanted to be part of a mission trip, wanted to reach out and help others but not able to travel with a team! Our DR Team has a opportunity for you! We are looking for mission minded people who would like to be part of our mission trip by sponsoring activities that we do with the boys at the orphanage in the Dominican Republic. Our team does daily crafts with the boys which they love as well as play games, read books, color and do puzzles. They love the interaction and time we spend with them. We also provide a daily healthy snack for all the boys. At the end of the week we have a pizza party and a cake and ice cream party and give each boy a little goody bag. We also give a small gift to the workers who care for these boys all year round. Usually it is body wash and lotion for the women and a shaving kit for the men. These are all small things that mean so much to these boys and workers. Would you consider sponsoring:

A snack for a day-$20
A special snack of apples and chocolate milk-$50
Crafts for a day-$30
Goody Bags-$15 each child (40-50 boys)
Gift for a Worker-$15 (10-12 workers)

If you would like to help sponsor any of these things you can put a check marked "DR Mission" in the offering plate or drop it by the church office. We are so thankful for the support and prayers of our church family who enable us to be part of this great mission and share the love of Jesus Christ with the boys and girls of Hogar de Ninos in the Dominican Republic. Thanks for your support, Amy Vigil
