It is a time of great hope, joy and faith when volunteers come to the Dominican Republic and Cuba! Madeline serves as mission coordinator for volunteers from the U.S. and Puerto Rico. She helps identify teams’ strengths and passions and then matches them with service opportunities in which they can make an impact while also learning from the experience and growing in their own faith. Much of the mission work that Madeline organizes takes place in the severely impoverished bateyes (bah-tays) communities. Teams meet local needs by bringing supplies such as food, clothes and bedding; setting up medical clinics; or offering training in hygiene, birth control or domestic violence prevention. Some teams lead Vacation Bible School programs for children or do evangelistic work with families. In Cuba, Madeline works directly with the Eastern Cuba Baptist Convention and the churches in the Jiguani district in Granma. Vacation Bible Schools and pastoral care training are two of the most requested local needs.
