Dominican Republic

Opportunity Overview

The Dominican Republic trip is from Feb. 24-Mar. 3, Saturday to Saturday. We are working with Freedom International Ministries which is building and operates a Christian school to serve the children whose parents work in the sugar cane fields in the Dominican. The sugar cane workers  are the very poorest people in the Dominican and many are from Haiti. The school has been adding a grade each year and is now teaching K through 4. We need missionaries to work with the children at the school, to prayer walk the sugar cane villages, to go out with evangelism teams to the villages and towns near the school and to do light construction work ( skilled and unskilled) in the continued construction of the school building. This will be Carmel’s 6th trip to work with Freedom International.
