Dominican Republic Mission

We’re in our sixth year of partnering with Camp Pico Escondido, a Young Life Camp that has been reaching Dominican teenagers for Jesus since 2003. We will serve by doing work projects to help improve the camp, worship with local teens and stay two nights in homes in the community. This team is already full, but you can pray for our high school students as they go!
