The Americas (North, Central, and South America) Area Retreat will be held in the Dominican Republic, October 3–9, 2023. This is a time for missionaries and their families to step away from their daily routines for a time of refreshment for their souls through fellowship with other servants of the Lord.

Throughout the week, missionaries with families will need individuals to care for their children, specifically ages of infant through 9 years old. MTW's Member Care team is asking for volunteers who are gifted in childcare to serve for a week, providing programs and activities for various age groups.

What is required?
Each participant must complete a child protection training course or provide documentation that you have recently taken a course. You will be asked to raise your own finances to cover transportation to the Dominican Republic, food, and lodging for the week.

Where will we stay?
You will stay in the same resort as the missionaries: Dreams Macao Beach

Can I bring my family so we can serve together?
Yes, we encourage making this a family mission experience! However, please consider whether children can actively participate in the care of the missionaries' children, or if they will add to the number of children needing care.

Will there be free time to experience the area?
There will be plenty of time for you to enjoy the beauty of the area in between scheduled childcare times.

Project Cost:
$1,500 per person, plus airfare. This includes your lodging and food for the week, based on double occupancy. Single room requests will increase your cost. During your day off, as a way of saying thank you, MTW will cover the cost for you to participate in a planned excursion. It is recommended to bring $200 for your personal spending.

How many volunteers are needed?
Eight individuals will be needed.
