Journey without Borders

Hi! Thank you for taking the time to hear my heart for this opportunity to serve in Dominican Republic this year! 

[Please watch the video provided for more information.]

I am so excited about this opportunity to serve the women and community of Barahona and surrounding villages, your support is absolutely appreciated. 

(All proceeds will be tax deductable)

With Love,
Jessica 



Thank you in advance for your support!

I am excited to share with you about my opportunity to serve abroad. I have been requested to go on a mission trip to Dominican Republic, and I would love for you to partner with me!

I will be traveling with an awesome ministry (from PA) The Underground Skatepark as a representative from my organization The Lamp to Barahona, Dominican Republic, December 2017.

The purpose of the trip is to share Jesus in word and action.  I am honored to join The Underground Skatepark as my assistance has been requested in ministering to a community of women. This particular trip is very special to me as it will be their first time ministering to the women in the form of a women’s conference.

We will also be providing free basic medical clinics in communities and villages within Barahona and Pedernales (serving close to 200 patients a day); Sponsoring and building a home ($4000); and raising ($1000) to provide shoes as we wash the feet of women and children. We also have been given the opportunity to sponsor a children’s festival that they call “Thanksgiving Christmas.” The church buses in approximately 600 children and feeds them a
meal they would never be able to have.

I appreciate your support through prayer and financial donation towards my ability to serve within the various communities.  Together, we can both be a small part of what God is doing to uplift the community in Barahona, DR, especially in the lives of the women and children.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the trip or how you can partner with me. The Lamp is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization; donation letters will be mailed at the end of the year.

 
With Love,

Jessica Jemmott
Founder, The Lamp
