Dominican Republic (Freedom International)

- Carmel Baptist Church
Come join us as we serve alongside Freedom International Ministries who operates a Christian school ministering the children whose parents work in the sugar cane fields of the Dominican Republic. Freedom International uses its programs to reach children and families with the life-giving gospel of Jesus Christ. Our team will work with the children at the school, prayer walk, participate with evangelism teams in nearby villages and towns, and help with light construction work (skilled and unskilled) at the school building. Come play a part in helping Freedom realize their vision to see people walking in relationship with the Lord, developing wholesome relationships with others, and using their God-given uniqueness to live for Him.
