Summer is a busy time at Makarios! We have 7 different teams arriving in the Dominican Republic for group ministry trips, and our interns have been working hard serving our students and staff. We want to be in a continual state of prayer, relying on the Lord for strength and guidance in each and every endeavor that we may face. For the month of July, we would like to invite you to be praying for our specific group ministry teams arriving, as well as a few other things we believe would be great to be praying for. We are excited for all the Lord is doing in the DR and cannot wait to hear how these prayers will be answered.
"Rejoice in hope, patient in affliction, and persistent in prayer." Romans 12:12
