Welcome to UponThousands.org! The Hartsfield family currently serves as full-time missionaries in the Dominican Republic. We are excited to share with you what God is doing in and through our lives. Please feel free to browse our site, sign up for our newsletter, or even contact us with any questions you might have.
Our Story: On a short-term missions trip to the Dominican Republic, in February 2014, we felt God beginning to call us into full time ministry. You can read about that trip here. After returning home, spending time in prayer, and seeking His will it quickly became undeniable that God wanted the Hartsfield family to respond to this call by moving to the Dominican Republic to work with the precious people who live in this beautiful country. In September of 2014 we did exactly that. You can follow along with our journey by visiting this site regularly and following us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
The Organization: We work with a ministry called Commission To Every Nation (CTEN). Commission To Every Nation is a non-denominational missionary sending agency helping “Ordinary People Partner with God to Accomplish the Extraordinary”. Their goal is to advance the Gospel to every nation. More than 555 missionaries serve in over 58 countries to improve the spiritual, educational, and physical, conditions of people worldwide. The prime focus of CTEN is to provide encouragement, mentoring, counsel, resources and prayerful insight as needed for each servant and their families.
Get Involved: Please know that thriving in the field as a missionary involves building and maintaining a team of vested people who will support us prayerfully, emotionally, and financially. We are always looking for those that are willing to partner with us in doing God’s will. Please visit our support page to learn more or contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
