About Our Cross Connect Mission Trip
Our group of dedicated FUMCCG missionaries, now including Youth members, will once again joined with local Methodist partners and others to lead a significant expansion of the Methodist Church-created school Evangelico Dominicano Colegio Mixto (Colegio). Our efforts lead up to facilitating the first-ever Christian graduating class in this neighborhood in 2020!
The Colegio brings vitally important, affordable, Christian-based education to the local community for children in grades Kinder-8 but now finds itself in serious disrepair.
This year’s plans included:
- Building two additional classrooms on the 2nd floor adjacent to the new classrooms constructed last summer.
- Building three new classrooms for toddlers on the lower level.
- Constructing a cistern and pump to bring the water supply up to necessary levels.
- Completing buildout and equipping of the new Science Lab Refurnishing existing classrooms.
- Enclosing the basketball court with chain link fence.
