Dominican Republic Mission


Thursday, March 7 through Monday, March 18

The 2013 mission trip marks the fifteenth trip to the Dominican Republic.

This year the group returned once again to the north side of the country, landing in Puerto Plata and Santiago and staying in and working in the region around Sosua.


Besides the intense work and rewards of helping people experience Christian love, there is time for some relaxation:  shopping, sightseeing at historical and nature sites, and being irradiated on the beach!

From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.
