Global Ministries invites you to join in a transformational pilgrimage to visit partners in Jamaica, Haiti, and the Dominican Republic this fall. From October 3rd to the 13th participants will experience the life giving work of three of the child sponsorship sites - Mt. Olivet Boys' Home, Pringle Children’s Home, and House of Hope, as well as witnessing the work of four partners – CONASPEH, the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, Caminante, and CECAF.
