It’s a week of mission–I should say, particular intentionality of mission. Hopefully we are missioners wherever whenever we are.
Two years after I first hoped to travel on mission to the Dominican Republic, I am finally on my way here. Consequences due to the Tax Day Flood and then Harvey postponed those trips until now. I was delayed an additional two days because of commitment to teach at Iona School for Ministry this weekend. Our other DR missioners are serving in the bateys as I fly to join them.
A prayer journal for all on mission was prepared to remind us that we journey with Christ for Christ.
I was able to pray Facebook Live Prayers from IAH. We heard the Scripture for the third day of mission:
I’ve been listening to the playlist of music chosen for the trip:
I’m knitting stars to share with the friends I’ll meet in the bateys.
I’ve been working on pastoral Spanish, though the folks we will serve will most likely speak a form of Creole French.
Uncion de los Enferrmos.
Que Dios lo/la bendiga.
Puedo rezar con Ud?
And me. Madre Beth. Sacerdote.
And now I’m now at the Casa Pastorale.
I can’t wait to see what God has in store.
