Missions - Dominican Republic

In partnership with Orphan's Heart, a ministry of the Florida Baptist Children's Homes, the Apalachee Baptist Association and the First Baptist Church of Blountstown have sent funds to build two new homes for two homeless families in the Dominican Republic. Through the leadership of Pastor Tim Rhoads, churches of our association have come together to buy the building materials for the construction teams of Orphan's Heart to build these two homes. Pastor Rhoads had hoped to take a group from our association to join in with one of these teams. When that didn't happen, Pastor Rhoads continued to lead his church and the Apalachee Baptist Association to give to this very worthwhile project. We hope that in the future, a group from our association will have the opportunity to go and participate with Orphan's Heart to build homes for the needy.
