What's Included


Maranatha volunteers have been actively working to build churches in the suburbs of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Many congregations were meeting in rented buildings or churches on the verge of collapse. Now the congregations have churches that are fully blocked and stuccoed, but the buildings still need a final coat of paint and the finishing details that will make the church truly shine out as a beacon of hope in these communities. This September, join Maranatha volunteers as we paint for of these recently completed churches. Be a part of the final touches that will bring smiles to the faces and hearts of each and every church member. There will also be opportunities to join several community outreach projects including children’s ministry programs.
