Dominican Republic Missions Trip
February 1 - February 7
We are excited to offer an opportunity for the Trinity community to engage the people of the Dominican Republic – a nation with a rich history but one also filled with violence, tyranny, and oppressive poverty for many.
We will be working with Makarios (www.makariosinternational.org), a ministry that serves the poorest Dominicans – hoping to love, educate and empower particularly the children and families affected by immigration laws that inhibit easy access to educational opportunities. Makarios is primarily a school – but it also serves as a resource aiming to strengthen families and build up leaders in the neighborhoods where the kids attending the school live.
Our team will be hosting a retreat for the Makarios staff at a Young Life camp in the Dominican mountain town of Jarabacoa. The team will be serving as the cooking and cleaning staff for the retreat – while also engaging with the Makarios staff and children.
