Truth Connect was in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to present a Leadership Training Conference to Haitian leaders in March, 2017. While I was there an old friend contacted me. Jim Sweeney and I worked together at Mission Discovery over 10 years ago. I left Mission Discovery in 2010; Jim left before that. Since then he has become the Executive Director of Mission Emanuel in Santo Domingo. When he saw I was in town, he invited me to visit their ministry and have lunch. I was very impressed with the work that Mission Emanuel is doing to serve the people of Santo Domingo. The ministry has a church and school, evangelistic mission outreach, medical and dental clinic, purified water supply depot, a women's empowerment ministry and a community building construction program. Jim & Cindy Sweeney are good people and are doing a great work in the D.R. I would encourage you to visit Mission Emanuel's web site (missionemanuel.org) and if possible, visit their campus in Santo Domingo. Thank you Jim for sharing your ministry; it was a great visit!
