Peace and Blessings,
I am excited to share with you about my opportunity to serve abroad. I have been selected to go on my 2nd medical mission trip- this time to the Dominican Republic, and I would love for you to partner with me!
I will be traveling with an awesome ministry from PA called The Underground Skatepark to Barahona, Dominican Republic, December 2017.
The purpose of the trip is to share Jesus in both word and action. I am honored to join The Underground Skatepark and their medical team, in treating and serving the surrounding communities. 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 and I am certain it is sure to be powerful.
We will be running 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 funds ($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 Underground Skatepark is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization; donation letters will be mailed at the end of the year.
Thank you in advance for your support!
Alexis Smith, BSN RN
