  1. 1. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/5/2014 9:41:10 AM] Having trouble viewing this email?Click here Eastern Dominican Christian Mission Summer 2014 (Part #1) Ryan, Erin, Micah & Josiah VandeLinde "Connecta2" "Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God-this is your spiritual act of worship." Romans 12:1 What a summer! Just recently we held our very first annual youth camp here in the eastern part of the country. This has been a dream for many of us for a long time and finally God helped us make it a reality. The theme was "Connecta2," or "Connected," using the idea of challenging the teens to be more connected to Christ. Every year we take many of our teenagers to camp where they disconnect from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Television and the internet and Connect with Jesus. Our prayer is that during the few days we are together each teenager would open their hearts to Jesus Christ and hear His Word preached in a very interesting and unique way.

  2. 2. file:///C|/Users/Cheryl/Documents/Slide%20Share%20Documents/render.htm[8/5/2014 9:41:10 AM] This year we used Romans 12:1-2 as our theme and challenged the teenagers to become living sacrifices and not be "Cristianos de Carton," or fake Christians. The challenge was to be authentic Christians and to take their faith in Jesus seriously. Being a youth camp, we used many forms of preaching such as dramas, small groups, interactive workshops and videos. We had worship music, a hip-hop dance team, and several popular Christian rap artists who all helped us preach the Word of God in a relevant way. We thank God for making this dream of a youth camp here in the east a dream come true and we give Him all of the glory. We truly feel more "Connecta2" to Jesus after camp and we are trying to be living sacrifices for Him. "Short-Term Teams" --------------------------------------------- We thank the following American churches for their partnership with us and for their participation in "Connecta2." Each American team partnered with one of our Dominican Churches and held VBS activities in each of our Dominican Churches. They then all traveled to camp with the Dominican teenagers where they served and participated in every part of "Connecta2." Great job guys! I have had THE BEST SUMMER EVER! Our family came to the US for baby sister's birthday and we got to stay all summer. (Well, Daddy had to go back and forth to the DR but the rest of the family stayed.) I have played baseball, gone to camp, gone to VBS, gone swimming and all sorts of other really cool and fun things. But the best part has been getting to hang out with my family and American friends. I have gotten to seen my grandparents, aunts and uncles, and cousins many times this summer and it has been great! My brother, Poppy and I at "Touch-a-Truck" in Salem, VA. In just a couple weeks we will be headed home. I am excited to go back home but I am really going to miss my
