Called Out Upon The Water
It’s night and I look across the bay from the dock where our borrowed sailboat is. A small town in the Dominican Republic that is our mission field sits unnaturally aglow, despite the complete darkness that surrounds it. It is a place filled with spiritual darkness, a place known as ‘Little Thailand’ due to the sex trade of men, women, boys and girls. I think this is what Sodom and Gomorrah must have resembled.

Boca Chica has a popular beach with the same name, located about 30 kilometers east of Santo Domingo de Guzmán in the south shore of the island of Hispaniola.
Boca Chica
April of 2013 began a 7 week long missions trip to Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. It was our first prolonged missions trip as a family. We lived on a friend's sailboat in the marina of this small Dominican town. We went out without a direct plan or mission, we only knew that we were to go and love the people of this town.
