Here’s an idea of some activities you may be doing on your trip. Please note that we may not be able to particiapte in all of these activities. We will do a variation of these with the potential for a few additions
Mountain Village Hike
Join us on a steep hike up to a remote mountain village called Alto de la Jagua. There, we will have an adult bible study, a kids mini Bible Camp, worship, and share a community meal with the people who live there!
Most of the homes in our villages are made of concrete brick. However, paint is expensive and most families can’t afford to decorate their home in this way. As a mission, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make these communities visually bright and colorful, while encouraging the homeowners to take ownership of the appearance of their homes.
In the afternoons, we will serve hundreds of kids at a time through Bible camps. During this time, you’ll dance with the kids, perform your character sketches, share your testimony, and pray over children as they hear a Bible lesson.
Worship & Missionary Story
Join us for a time of worship with your team members, as well as some Dominican friends. You’ll be able to hear from one of our missionary families as they tell their testimonies or how the Lord led them to serve with CUPS!
Village Movie Night
This is a wonderful time to get to know the kids in our villages! Join us as we gather with children and families to worship the Lord, dance, sing, and enjoy an outdoor movie together!
We’ll go door-to-door in different communities to speak with families and learn how we can pray for them. Then, on their front porch or in their living room, we will pray with them (with the help of a translator). We will also give these families a small gift of rice and oil.
We will bring the toys and we hope you’ll bring the energy. We’ll spend a few hours playing with the children and hosting a mini Bible camp for them.
Use this time to have some fun! The beaches in the Dominican are gorgeous, and we want you to be able to experience them. You’ll have the option to go on a snorkeling cruise (additional fee) or you’ll have free time to relax by the hotel pool!
Worship & Debrief
This will be a wonderful time of reflection on what the Lord has taught you over the past week. We will worship together, share our “snapshot” moments, and reflect over the time spent serving the Lord.
