We are excited to share that construction at the worksite has ramped back up as the Dominican government has begun lifting regulations relating to COVID-19. We will keep the updates coming as the Dominican crew is hard and work keeping the project moving. For the time being, there will be no mission teams working onsite, but we look forward to the day when it will be safe to host teams again at the guesthouse!
In January 2020, a team from Illinois at the worksite learns about the project’s history.
The REVOLUTION Update Tour Wrap Up
The REVOLUTION Update Tour Presentations took place between the months of September 2019 and January 2020. REVOLUTION Financial Manager, Frank Beltre, and SRI Executive Director, Joe Zimmerman, travelled to provide updates on the campaign as well as answer questions relating to the project. Many past team members from SRI mission trips were in attendance and it was a great time of reunion for old friends! There were plans for two additional tour stops in Minneapolis, MN and Bryan, OH but they unfortunately had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. SRI would like to thank the following people and churches for graciously hosting the presentations:
- Northwoods Community Church, Peoria, IL
- First Presbyterian Church, Nashville, TN
- Southeast Christian Church, Crestwood, KY
- Crossroads Evangelical Church, Wauseon, OH
- Brookside Church, Fort Wayne, IN
- First Presbyterian Church, Spartanburg, SC
- Glorieta Baptist Church, Concord, NC
- Dr. Scot Stewart and Dr. Cathy Finch, Gainesville, GA
- Second Presbyterian Church, Roanoke, VA
- First Church of God, Newville, PA
Thank you again to all who attended a presentation and to all who continue to support the project!
We continue to feel extremely blessed by all who have contributed so far to make this project a reality. Please see the most current numbers below as of 5/31/20:
