Registration is full, we'll see you in July!
In the northern city of Santiago, Dominican Republic, there is a place where One Child Matters children gather to hear about the Word of God and are transformed by its message of salvation. These children live in a community where poverty and a need for God has left most inhabitants hopeless about their future. Passionate about sharing the gospel and the hope found in Jesus, a local pastor and his small congregation is working hard alongside One Child Matters to bring change to the community. The journey however, has not been easy.
Dwindling funds, unfinished construction, and tropical rains have forced the congregation (as well as the One Child Matters children’s ministry) to meet in whatever location they can find. Without proper shelter, families of the children are beginning to show signs of concern and even impatience. As a response, One Child Matters has agreed to provide temporary shelters while two teams are recruited to repair and complete permanent facilities in June and July mission trips. And that is where you come in.
We need you and 39 fellow believers to join us on July 26th as we travel to the Caribbean to strengthen this ministry and encourage this little church. The leaders and staff at this project have prayed for years for completion of their facilities -- YOU are going to be the answer to their prayers!
Along the way we will worship together, spend a day at the beach, meet some lifelong friends, and have lots of fun. As we do every year, One Child Matters is teaming up with WPFF, WNLI, and Positive 89.3 to bring you this opportunity. Don’t let this be the year you let another excuse get in the way. Now is the time!
Be the arms and feet of Jesus and join us as we help this community in need.
