Here’s what we’re up to this year…
This summer’s mission project will take place June 16-23, 2018 in the communities of Mosovi and San Simón.
We have built long-lasting relationships with our Dominican brothers and sisters as well as with our fellow missioners from the three lower peninsula dioceses.
Over the past several years, we have been able to assist with construction of a new church, repair on existing structures, painting, a Vacation Bible School, and work on the water project.
San Simón Project
Over the course of 4-5 years, we were able to work with the community to build La Iglesia Episcopal San Simon Apostol in Puerto Plata. The dedication of the new building took place on July 18, 2015.
This year we will continue work in repairing the building and other structures from flood damage.
The approximate cost for each team member is $1,800-2,000.
Here’s how this breaks down (All numbers approximate):
FLIGHT: $750-800 with group rate discount
LODGING w/MEALS: $500
ON-SITE MEALS: $70
TRAVEL VISA: $10
While there are general funds being raised for this multi-year project, as a team member you are required to solicit funds for your trip. This is not easy for some, but remember, you are not asking for funds for yourself but for support of the DR project and relationship building.
