All are invited to the next meeting for any interested in the 2017 DR Mission Team – Sunday, April 30, 2017, 2pm, at First Baptist Church, 114 N. Main Street, Wallingford. At this meeting, we will discuss very important cultural issues we need to be aware of as related to Haitians and Dominicans. Also, we will begin to organize around our various work projects, as well as recap our big fundraiser held on April 21.
The 2017 Dominican Republic Mission Team will once again be serving the Lord in La Romana from June 30 - July 15, 2017. Here are the different trips:
- Week 1: Friday, June 30 to Sunday, July 9, 2017
- Week 2: Friday, July 7 to Saturday, July 15, 2017
- DRMT Lite: Friday, July 7 to Wednesday, July 12, 2017

(Full Lite trip at Casa de Campo then last few days at Casa Pastoral)

While serving in the DR, different teams will be working each day to help the very poor, including groups providing medical clinics, construction at the Joe Hartman School (kitchen project), educational programs, construction in a batey (build houses, etc.), evangelism, food distribution, and much more. This past year in 2016, we had 147 volunteers serving over 16 days. During that time, the DR Mission Team 2016 celebrated the completion of the "Fifty for 50" project in Batey 50 on July 9, where all shacks have been replaced with new homes, a sustainable garden has been developed, a new school is built and running, a new church was constructed, and biosand water filters have been installed in all homes.
