Living conditions have become poorer with time and programs to help the community other than the public schools are minimal.

Projected Date: June 8th to June 14th, 2013 Haiti: Surrender Trip
Synopsis: Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere and the 11th poorest nation in the world. After the devastating earthquake that killed scores of people, orphans have been left to try to survive in the midst of great tragedy.

Dominican Republic: Destiny Missions

Synopsis: The Dominican Republic is the other nation that shares the island “The Hispaniola” with Haiti. Although it may not be as poor as Haiti, many people have fled from Haiti into the Dominican Republic, creating an increasing impoverishment of the people there. The nation has not been able to recover from a dictatorship that ruled the country for decades before being dismantled in the 1960s. Children, from ages 11 and up, are welcome to come as long as one of their parents is present.

Objectives: We will work in the community of San Cristobal and will provide medical clinics, education support to orphans, various construction projects, water filtration systems, widespread evangelism, and local church equipping.

Projected Date: May 28th – June 4th, 2013

 

Nepal: Destiny Missions – Human Traffic Focus

Synopsis: Nepal is right between India and China. It hosts the magnificent Himalayan mountains, but it is also the home of 29 million people, most of which live in extreme poverty. It is, in fact, one of the poorest and least developed nations in the world. One of the worst tragedies of late is the rapid increase of child sex traffic from Nepal into big cities in India such as Delhi, Bombay, and Mumbai.

Objectives: We will work with local missionaries in medical, evangelism, and emotional support to victims who have been rescued from human traffic and returned to Nepal. There will also be evangelism to the nearby communities of the nation’s capital, Kathmandu.

Projected Date: October 15th -October 27th, 2013
