Dominican Republic (OHI/MNN) — The focus of many organizations nowadays is on community development and transformation. And there are some who not only want to transform communities but transform hearts as well.

Orphan’s Heart is one of these. Their Community Transformation Center in The Dominican Republic is nearly completed. Teams were at work this week continuing the progress made over the summer. Here is a report from Orphan’s Heart:

Our team from First Baptist Church of Lake Wales came to serve this week! And with a team of only 9 men, they are on pace to challenge our build record! We are so thankful for those individuals willing to sacrifice their time and resources to come be the hands and feet of Christ. 

Due to the hard work and long hours put in by our Dominican and American crews this summer, we have the walls up on almost 45 homes, and the Community Transformation Center is very close to being completed. Final touches will be done in the next several weeks in anticipation of the building’s dedication on November 6. As the heart of the community and the channel through which ministry will flow, we are excited to see this building become functional and lives impacted.

Please continue to be in prayer that God would be glorified by this project and that lives would continue to be radically transformed through the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
