Home Sweet Home

By Leslie Valenzuela


On February 17th God allowed me to see His goodness and faithfulness in my life by making that day my official moving day to El Catey in Samana, to start the journey of my calling to serve alongside the Dorseys as a missionary doctor.  It has been 7 years since I first visited El Catey and  fell in love with the community. I was amazed at God’s peace and beauty in this place. Most importantly, it was then when I first heard Him say : ” This land is fruitful and it’s ready”.

Ever since, my desire to serve alongside the Dorsey’s has grown and strengthened in me, by God’s confirmations. He is showing me that now is the time to go and help reap that fruitful land for His kingdom. I have a heart  especially for the women in this community. Therefore, I will be serving in a womens health ministry. This ministry provides a women’s health care program to provide general Gynecological care. In addition,i will  also serve as a primary care provider for general medical patients seen in the clinic. Within the community, my goals are to develop a Women’s Bible study and together with our other Foursquare leaders, I will participate in planting a new Foursquare  church in El Catey.

My request to you is that you prayerfully consider being a part of this ministry. With and through prayer, God started this journey and I need your prayers to continue this calling. I have a commitment for a year to begin, for which I  also ask you to prayerfully consider being a financial supporter. My expenses are $600 per month. This includes my living expenses, transportation, health insurance, etc.

I am so exited and expectant of what God will do this year in El catey!.Thank you for your generosity and most importantly, your prayers.

Be blessed,
