Workers with One Kingdom, a mission supported by Churches of Christ, recently traveled to the Dominican Republic to check in with their longest-tenured minister, Prudencio Rodriguez.
Rodriguez has worked with the Lousiana-based ministry, formerly World Radio, for more than 40 years. In addition to church planting, he produces weekly gospel radio programs. During the pandemic, he recorded the programs on his cell phone in his bedroom.
In Mao, a small town in northwestern Dominican Republic, Rodriguez has helped to plant at least eight congregations — including churches of immigrants from neighboring Haiti. He has acquired land for the congregations but does not put the property in his name, workers with One Kingdom said. Instead, he deeds the land to the churches.
