PTS Students on Mission 
to Dominican Republic

Photos and Text by Beth Godfrey

PTS students travel all over the world each summer-for field education, student exchanges, and mission or volunteer work. Last summer, after finishing our first M.Div. year, five of us joined 31 others (ages 10-65) from Presbyterian Church (USA) churches in New Jersey and Washington, D.C. on a two-week mission trip to the Dominican Republic. We worked with two local congregations in the capital city of Santo Domingo-Barrio Maria and Barrio Tres Brazos. The churches were social outreach-oriented Pentecostal churches located in poor communities that served the poor. Though our team came from a very different place and culture than the Dominicans, our faith in Christ brought us together as we worked side-by-side for long hours and worshiped together. And though we went to serve, we all left the island having been deeply ministered to.
