Hasta Luego - High School Dominican Trip

Posted by Laura Mueller on

A team of 12 will be in the Dominican Republic June 2-11.

This year will mark the 6th year for our High School Ministry to serve in the Dominican Republic in partnership with YL Expeditions. Since our partnership began, we have been able to see how God continues to use Pico Escondido, the only Young Life camp in the Caribbean, to introduce youth to Christ and His love for them. We have done everything from digging a hole to put in a pool to painting railings and buildings, building a gazebo and even carrying rocks! This year we'll help to make a strong foundation for a future dining hall and dorm rooms.

This trip will be an incredible opportunity for our high school students to get out of their comfort zones, build relationships with God’s people from another part of the world, form friendships with their own team members and see the incredible ways that God is moving and transforming the people in the Dominican.
