MADELINE serves as mission coordinator for volunteers from the U.S. and Puerto Rico. She identifies teams’ strengths and matches them with service opportunities that empower, educate, and help them grow in their own faith. Much of Madeline’s mission work takes placein the severely impoverished bateyes (bah-tays) communities, which are villages of sugar workers. Teams meet local needs by bringing supplies such as food, clothes, and bedding. They also set up medical clinics; offer training in hygiene, birth control, and domestic violence prevention; and lead Vacation Bible School programs. In Cuba, Madeline works with the Eastern Cuba Baptist Convention and the churches in the Jiguaní district in Granma.
