Foundation for Peace Mission: Haiti and the Dominican Republic

Periodically, members of PCM go to the Dominican Republic (DR) and Haiti with the Foundation for Peace (FFP). We began by constructing a church and school near Santo Domingo in a community called Zumbon (see Building Pews).

We are also working on the border of the DR and Haiti, constructing a school in Pedernales, DR and a church across the border in Anse-a-pitre, Haiti.

2018 Mission to DR

Be the hands and feet of Christ and an encouraging companion to our Dominican brothers and sisters as they work to lift themselves from poverty.

We will join forces with a group of seminarians and undergraduates from The University of Dubuque! Working hand in hand with the community, we will help move forward their self-development goals: increasing economic opportunity, providing meals to school children, and increasing community connection and involvement. Our work will include a construction project, Bible school for children, worship and learning with the community, spiritual growth, and a whole lot of fun. We will find a manageable job for everyone!

Scholarship and fundraising opportunities are available through the Outreach Committee. We are committed to helping everyone participate, regardless of financial means. *This is a particularly good opportunity for college students before starting a summer job.

Building Pews for a Small Church in the DR

In 2007, PCM joined with FFP to rebuild a little church in the DR village of Zumbon. Upon returning to Morristown, Bob and Jan Harris recalled the church's unstable, splintered old pews and how sad for our brothers and sisters in Christ to have to sit on them. So they gathered fine wood and recruited skilled carpenters from PCM's beloved AAA group to create blessed new pews shown in the photos below.

The new Zumbon church was dedicated with a new school and medical clinic to follow. This little church has become a beacon of hope for the whole community!
