WHAT TO EXPECT
A typical mission trip consists of four full days of ministry. The team will attend a local church service on Sunday and have some time for sightseeing. Ministry days will include ministry at a school, sugar cane villages, distributing food, and most importantly sharing the gospel in various formats. The team will fly Delta from Denver through JFK (New York) and on to Santo Domingo and back through Atlanta. The total travel time each way is roughly ten to fifteen hours. The team will stay at a hotel (similar to an Embassy Suites) with a pool for use during down time. Two or three team members will share a room. Married couples will have their own room and families up to four people will have their own room.
