Unleashing Compassion

“And he passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, “The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,” ~ Exodus 34:6


The upcoming mission trip to the Dominican Republic is a perfect opportunity to take action on this year’s theme of “Each One, Reach One” and our mission to “Unleash Compassion.” Canyon member, Theresa Killingsworth, is helping to lead this nine-day mission trip to help build a medical clinic in San Juan de la Maguana on March 9-17, 2018. This medical clinic is desperately needed and will serve more like a hospital, providing a wide range of care. The mission team will also participate in devotionals, worship at a local church, share God’s word with the people in the barrios, and more.
