This past fall break, I had the blessing to serve with seven other Cedarville University students and two staff members at the Makarios school in the Dominican Republic. The school was started by a Cedarville graduate, and it is this year’s SGA philanthropy project, a ministry our school has the opportunity to support. Throughout the days there, we planned to play with the kids, tour the school, and do some work projects in the local villages.
Initially, I felt more like a tourist than a missionary. The first day was fun; I loved running around with the kids, and it was fascinating to see the culture of the Dominican. But it felt like, if anything, they were serving me. I was tired, but I wasn’t giving everything I had. I wasn’t working, building, or creating.
But as the days passed, I learned something: Makarios served us as we served them. Loving the students was rewarding for me, as it was for them. We had a chance to be part of a lasting, sustainable ministry – and to learn God’s love from them even as we showed it. What does it matter if we build something or clean a park if Christ is not preached? This love is sustainable; this love will last. And that love is something I’ll never forget.
If you would like to give to Makarios, please visit our giving website and follow the cues. We appreciate your generosity, and please keep Makarios in your prayers.
