Sikeston First UMC Dominican mission team

$0 0

We are a team that has been lead to do mission work in the Dominican Republic. Our goal is to share God's love by being the hands and feet of Jesus in a very poor country.

We decided to start mission work in the DR after our team leader visited the country on vacation and saw the extreme poverty. The average salary is $12 a day. Families don't have money to provide adequate clothing and shoes for their children resulting in high numbers of children contracting parasites through their feet and becoming incredibly ill.
Although we are a construction team our goal is to educate the people on proper sanitation and the importance of education. Because of the lack of education due to families not having the money to send their children to school, the people of this country aren't taught the importance of having a sanitary environment. Decomposing trash is everywhere. Even their waterways are contaminated which is causing disease. Please help us continue our efforts in this country and help us spread God's love to a country that is in need.
