About the Trip
We will be serving children, the community and the church as we seek to join the mission of GO as we Redeem, Renew, and Restore the island of Hispanola specifically in Hato De Yaqui, a church that we have partnered with for 16 years. We have seen God at work as he is transforming this community through the children's feeding center, work projects in the community, and interacting with locals there.
