Mount Zion Christian Schools’ 8th grade class every year travels to San Pedro de Macoris to spend a week at the Centro Integral Maternal Infantil VIDA, which is a facility run by Dr. Enerio Mercedes and his family. Located there is his office, a Christian school and housing for short-term mission groups. While in San Pedro we help Dr. Enerio with projects such as teaching English lessons, painting, odds and ends projects, and bringing much needed food to the impoverished Haitian communities working and living in the sugar cane fields, and will participate in outreaches spreading the love of Christ with His people in partnership with the local churches.
