SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT: Grace H.
The joy of feeling the unconditional love and happiness from the people of the Dominican might be the greatest thing I’ve experienced, much like the beautiful and merciful love of our Jesus Christ. I’m so glad The Bruce Gilley Memorial Foundation helped me experience this again last summer (2013). As I write this I can’t help but smile and just long to be back there with those beautiful people.
While we were there we helped build a second story to the church and other random jobs in the village. Also, we had a teens and women’s ministry to really connect with those groups of people. We also had a VBS sort of thing, designated for younger kids but really all ages were welcome. What we mostly tried to focus on was just really loving these people and sharing the love of Jesus Christ, without the Bruce Gilley Memorial Foundation I would have never been able to do that. I really cannot thank you enough.
