In 1989, I began part­ner­ing with WIM Missionaries Jerry and Miok Morris in the Dominican Republic. They were church planters there for eight years.

No Turning Back

You could have heard a pin drop after Sergio made the announce­ment. Some of the par­ty guests appeared frozen with drinks raised half way to their gap­ing mouths, a few wept… but no one spoke. They were famil­iar faces to Sergio, fam­i­ly mem­bers and long time friends all gath­ered togeth­er to cel­e­brate his high school grad­u­a­tion, yet he had felt uneasy about how they would respond to his words. Now we were all star­ing at him…
