Congratulations to our new Missionary!

We are so proud of Kaitlin Thompson as she received her
commission to work with the mission, Cominante, in the
Dominican Republic. During a special ceremony at our
General Assembly in Des Moines, Iowa last week, Kaitlin
was one of twelve missionaries commissioned to serve
throughout the world. They are being sent to Kenya,
Thailand, Japan, Greece, Morocco, Haiti, Jamaica,
Cayman Islands, Zambia, Republic of Korea, Dominican
Republic and Palestine. It is God’s plan that we share His
Word. What a blessing it is to have a member of our
congregation, our community, our region, and our
Country volunteer and say, “Here am I, Send me!” May
God’s blessings and our prayers be with Kaitlin
throughout her service.
