From July 29 to August 5, 2016, six people from the Oklahoma Region went on a mission trip to visit the mission of Caminante in Boca Chica, Dominican Republic. To support the mission of Caminante and the health and well-being of the children and adolescents they serve, we took over 500 toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste, two large suitcases filled with clothing, $500 for school supplies and baseballs.
The Oklahoma Region has visited Caminante since 2008. The last visit to Caminante was in the summer of 2014. The purposes of this 2016 trip were:
See how the mission of Caminante has grown and changed
Set specific dates for mission trips in 2017
See how the Oklahoma Region could help Caminante with their mission
See how Caminante could help the Oklahoma Region with our ministries
The staff at Caminante also have helped us set dates for two mission trips in 2017 – late January and the second week of July. If you are interested in going on a mission trip, contact Don Johnson 580-02-2612.
