The Dominican Republic is a country of almost 9 million people and relatively few churches. During my week there I worked with churches in and around Santo Domingo, the capital. 4 days I worked on the East side of the city, with churches ranging in attendance from 20 to 75. The other 3 days I worked on the North side, where between 65-75 were present. They came from as far away as Bonao (an hour's bus trip) and several points in between.
People here are beginning to have more time for spiritual things--most have the necessities of life, so now they can think about other things. Yet there are few full time preachers to take advantage of these opportunities. Please pray that God will send laborers.
