Mission Trip - Dominican Republic
Come on, CCV. Let's go to Dominican Republic and see the impact that's being made long term through New Missions. We can contribute for a week, but making a lasting impression on the lives of men and women and families in material poverty - and they'll teach us something powerful. New Missions has served Haiti and Dominican Republic for over 30 years and are seeing incredible fruit and growth for two countries on the rise!
