In June of 2014, Grace Community Church and Iglesia Gracia Soberana of Gaithersburg partnered to serve Fundacion Red de Misericordia (English, map, fb), a non-profit that cares for children who have been abused and neglected.
We also worked with Iglesia Bíblica de la Gracia (English) to shine the light of the gospel by ministering directly to the orphans of Red de Misericorida, and to members of the surrounding community. The team served in four ways:
- Working in the orphanage and with the children’s Bible school/summer school
- Helping to build a new property with larger capacity to house more children
- Doing street evangelism
- Providing dental care for children in the orphanage and surrounding area
The team lived with several families of Iglesia Biblica de la Gracia while they were there.
