JOURNEY CHURCH 2020 Missions Trip
Location: Dominican Republic
Organization: Casas por Cristo
About Casas por Cristo:
Driven by a desire to provide tangible expressions of God's love and provision Casas por Cristo to date, has provided over 4,500 families with homes. Casas por Cristo goes beyond building. Casas is dedicated to growing Christ's church one home at a time by helping meet the physical and spiritual needs of their neighbours.
What will we be doing:
Our team will set out to show the love of Christ to a family in need in the Dominican Republic (DR) by building them a 3 room home.
You ask….What do a bunch of random people know about building a house?
Great question. The answer is, potentially not a lot. But thats ok! A Casas por Cristo missionary will be with our team, leading and teaching everything that is required to complete the project. Any group with a willingness to serve can complete a home. Remember, Casas por Cristo has successfully done this 4500 times with teams of all ages and last year we took a team of 25 students and made it happen!
