This summer teens and adults from HNOJ travel to the Casa Santa Ana, in the Dominican Republic, a home in the Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos system of orphanages.
While at the house, we put on a VBS experience for 6-8 year-olds during the day and spend our afternoons and evenings giving attention to children who desperately need it. Each night we take some time to reflect on our day's activities and how we experienced God in the most vulnerable and marginalized. There are a limited number of spots on the trip.
