Merry Christmas!
Christ is born! 


“The angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.’ And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
‘Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace amonth those with whom He is pleased!'”
Luke 2:10-14

Our final newsletter for 2021 contains a mission story, our home service schedule and prayer requests as we move into the new year! We are thankful for another year of service, doing our part in God’s mission here in the Dominican Republic and throughout Latin America. This is made possible only by the grace of God and supporters like you in both prayer and gifts.

In our Savior Jesus’ name,
Rafael and Jamielynn



Hallaca Time!
We made hallacas for the second year in a row at our house in Santiago. Hallacas are a Venezuelan Christmas tradition and are VERY delicious. The prep is pretty intense, but they store very well in the fridge and freezer to grab for meals the whole week following Christmas (and beyond!). You can read our friend Erin’s blog post about her hallaca-making experience with us this year (
