Pastor’s Wives and Women in Ministry
Thank you for your heart to serve in the Dominican Republic!
For the last 5 years OMC has been working in partnership with a local church and the Dominican federal government to provide safe homes and stability for impoverished families and single mothers. With construction complete and families moved in, our ministry needs are now greater than ever as we strive to serve one more through feeding programs, educational training, and discipleship support for the local church plant. We are working to meet the tangible needs of individuals, but also the intellectual, nutritional and—most importantly—spiritual needs of those living in this community where resources are so scarce.
What you will be doing:
- Feeding Programs – Scientists believe that the most critical part of a child’s development happens within the first 1,000 days of their life. In order to develop properly, a child needs regular proper nutrition. Come participate in our daily feeding program where 100 children from birth to age 5 receive a hot, well-balanced meal that will help them as they grow and develop into tomorrow’s world-changers! We can use your help to serve plates, help little ones to eat, and create a safe and fun atmosphere for children to fill their tummies!
- Sponsorship Baskets – They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we need you to come join ours!! Work alongside our ministry partners to pack supplementary food baskets for children supported by our sponsorship program. Help fill bags will beans, rice, oils, and other vitamin and calorically rich items that will bless these families and help provide for their basic needs.
- Home Visits – In the afternoon, come deliver some of those food baskets and visit with some of the children and families where sponsorship has made life-changing impacts. See traces of the life they used to live, and learn how your regular monthly support can make a world of a difference!
