Posted February 12, 2023

Our staff in Barahona hosted a mission team of 11 members from January 7-14, 2023. The team, with members from Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, was our largest since Covid-19 invaded our lives. We were excited to welcome three first-time team members on this trip!

In addition to serving with the Food Distribution each day, the team focused on three main work projects: 1) Waterproofing sealer was applied to the new concrete roof on Pastor Ramón’s family’s apartment in Los Robles; 2) Exterior lighting was installed at our Ministry Hub; and 3) A concrete walkway was installed around the perimeter of the Ministry Hub.

The team also participated in children’s outreach activities in two communities. In Algodón, kids played games while boys received haircuts from local barbers, and girls were pampered by volunteers with a shampoo. In Los Robles, kids filled the church to sing, play games, and hear a bible story led by a member of the team. At the end of each of the activities, kids were treated to delicious ice cream!
