We will be working alongside members of a small Haitian Baptist church, La Iglesia Bautista Cristo Para Las Naciones, in San Pedro de Macoris. It is home to Dominicans as well as Haitians, many of whom are descended from laborers who worked in the sugar cane fields and who still occupy the workers' shacks even after the sugar industry declined. Our being there helps the church realize its vision of restoring its neighborhood by providing a vibrant church community and quality elementary through high school education. In addition to construction projects and building relationships, we have explored the Dominican culture further by visiting a U.S Embassy, exploring the capital city of Santo Domingo, and spending a day with a community organization called The Cercadillo Project.

The convergence of so many backgrounds, languages, and experiences is especially meaningful because Gordon College has established and maintained a relationship with La Iglesia Bautista Cristo Para Las Naciones over several years. Our time with the church is a time among friends. We are thrilled to be headed down with a team of 12 Gordon College students this March 3rd-13th, 2016 to serve God by furthering our knowledge of culture, serving in a global setting, and being in community with our brothers and sisters in the Dominican Republic!
