Dominican 2023

We will be partnering with John and Becky Shirley in their ministry with Love Goes Home ministry through They have hearts for the lost, desperate, and abandoned children living in the world’s most difficult places.

As Live Global missionaries, they work to empower national churches in Haiti and the Dominican Republic through their ministry “Love Goes Home”. They understand that the local church in each national setting knows best how to care for orphans in their own community and that believers in North America can play a vital role in those efforts. 


Love Goes Home assists churches in bringing Jesus, safety, hope, and love to the most desperate people on earth.
