is sending a mission team to the Dominican Republic in March of 2019. The Cheyne Team will be partnering with two other experienced teams from Knox Presbyterian Church Waterdown and Trinity Presbyterian Church Hamilton.
A short term mission is an opportunity to share the gospel and provide practical assistance to those who are in need. Jesus tells his disciples to “go and make disciples” in the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20. As followers of Jesus, members of a short term mission team will have the opportunity to “go” and share the good news of Jesus for a week-long trip. A short term mission team not only allows members of the team to share God’s love with others, but it is also an opportunity for members to experience God’s work in their own lives. A short term mission provides both an opportunity for evangelism as well as discipleship and equipping.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
The mission field is Dominican Republic. This Caribbean nation shares an island with the nation of Haiti' Many of the people in the Dominican Republic live without adequate housing and other amenities.
The host organization is called The Samaritan Foundation http://www.thesamaritanfoundationdr.com (not to be confused with Samaritan’s Purse). The purpose of The Samaritan Foundation is to build housing for people who are poor in the Dominican Republic.The team members will work on building 1-2 homes for 1-2 families in need. The team will take part in helping local ministries in the community (ie. Sports activities, schools, orphanages, feeding programs, and hospitals) as well.
As mentioned at the top, The Cheyne Team will be partnering with two other experienced teams from Knox Presbyterian Church Waterdown and Trinity Presbyterian Church Hamilton.
The total cost of the trip as a team is $6,862.50. This cost will be shared by Cheyne Missions, Fundraisers and the team member's individual cost.
