DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (DR-Oct-03-2019)
Thank you for your heart to serve in the Dominican Republic!
Since 2010, One More Child has been working to provide care and tangible resources to children and families living in impoverished areas in the Dominican Republic. Our ministry work is primarily located near the city of Azua and is in partnership with the federal government of the Dominican Republic as well as a local church.
For the last five years, One More Child has partnered with Iglesia Fundamento Biblico to work on a large scale, comprehensive community development project to meet the physical, spiritual, emotional, and medical needs of the poorest children and families throughout the Dominican Republic. Through the generosity and skills of short term missionaries, we were able to construct 94 single family homes as well as a Community Development Center and church in a rural community just outside of Azua. With families now moved and active ministry happening – we need YOU to come and serve alongside our ministry partners to provide training, life skills classes, vacation Bible School, feed hungry children, provide tangible resources and disciple the next generation of believers in this amazing community.
We are excited to see how the Lord will work in your life and in your fellow team members’ lives not only leading up to your mission trip and while you are serving in the Dominican but also upon your return home. This is an exciting time to be the hands and feet of Christ and be able to serve some of the most amazing children and families in the world!

• Play a part in a comprehensive community development project that is helping to meet the spiritual, physical, educational, emotional and medical needs of the residents of El Carrizal.
