Holiday Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic!

The holiday season can be a lonely time for our widows. This is a great opportunity to bring hope and the love of our King Jesus to widows in need, as well as their families and neighbors. Join For the Widow Ministries for a mission trip to Barahona, Dominican Republic to spread some holiday cheer and share the story of Jesus’s birth.

Trip Lead: Meredith Chase
Dates: November 30 – December 7, 2024
Location: Barahona, Dominican Republic
Cost: $800/person + flight cost (The total cost of the trip is approximately $1,600 to $1,700 per person depending on where you are flying from.)

The $800/person paid to For the Widow Ministries includes ground transportation, food, lodging, and translators. The only additional money you will need to bring is for souvenirs and a tip for the staff. You may tip whatever you feel led to give but this amount is typically $25-35 per person.

Lodging and Food Details:

The For the Widow Mission House in Barahona is a secure, gated, two-story home where we will stay during the trip. It is owned by a local family and managed by a pastor. For many years, the home has been used to host missionaries. The mission house is air conditioned with 6 bedrooms for comfortable sleeping. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are cooked and provided by the For the Widow team daily. The food is a combination of local cuisine with some American options. Bottled and filtered water is provided as the water is unsafe to drink.

Flight Details:

You have a choice between having For the Widow book your flight and secure travel insurance or booking yourself. If you choose to book flights yourself, all flights must arrive in Santo Domingo (SDQ), Dominican Republic by 2:00 pm on the day of arrival. Returning flights to the U.S. must depart no earlier than 2:00 pm. You will be responsible for any additional expenses incurred if you are unable to arrive and leave by these times.

Schedule Details:

On day 1, we will fly into Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. We will be greeted by our local program director at the airport. We will board an air-conditioned tour bus and travel 4 hours to Barahona, Dominican Republic where we will remain for the duration of the trip. We will have one scheduled stop for a restroom and snack break.

For the next 6 days, we will visit each of the widows in the program and will focus on building relationships, prayer, sharing the gospel, and encouraging them in their faith. The afternoon activities will vary depending on the mission team and the time of year we are in the DR. We may complete projects needed to support the widows or host bible study and kids VBS. We will have many opportunities to share the gospel and minister to the people in the community. In the middle of the week, we will take a morning to enjoy local scenery, like the beach or river, and shop for souvenirs. On Sunday, we will enjoy two different church services!

On day 8, we will return to the airport in Santo Domingo and fly home.

Signing Up to Participate:

If you have multiple people from your family joining the trip, we need you to complete the form for each member of your family or team. Once this form is completed, we will reach out to you with more details and will send an invoice for the cost of the trip.
