"A local Monte Cristi person told me "??What you all are doing is really good for the town of Monte Cristi"?"
"A truly excellent family experience. The OO program is unlike any vacation you've ever taken, and much more memorable because you are permitted to interact one-on-one with the children of the community."
"I think that an excellent balance was acheived between time with the children and down time. Without that time for reflection, my experience would not have beem as rich as it was."
"My experience with [Outreach360] is unlike any other mission trip or volunteer experience that I've ever been on. To say the least, it was the most humbling experience that I will forever hold in my heart. This trip has helped me to put my life and the things that truly matter into perspective. The children at the Orphanage are all beautiful and talented people with so much love in their hearts, it's contagious! They have all given me so much more from this experience than I had ever hoped or imagined giving to them. One of the most important lessons I learned from the Dominican lifestyle is to 'live in the moment' and not get so wrapped up in what is yet to come in the future, or even dwell on events from the past, which is so easy to do with the fast paced lifestyle the US. I am blessed beyond words to have been given the opportunity to experience life in Monte Cristi and I cannot wait to go back! I highly recommend everyone to volunteer with [Outreach360], even if it's just for one week! I promise you will not be disappointed! This is the opportunity of a lifetime and one that you will never forget!"
"At [Outreach360], I got to not only experience a different culture but take away the feeling that I had made an impact in the lives of others."
"It can be a life changing experience! It is an opportunity to not only experience a very different culture first hand, but to actually feel that you are making a difference -- however small -- in the lives of the children."
"It's a great experience, you need to be ready to serve others and know that you need to be very flexible"
"If you want a life changing experience go to [Outreach360] and be blessed by serving others. You will never have a better chance to open your heart, mind and soul to serving others. If you remember "It's not about you", but it is "Your responsibility" and your outlook towards life will never be the same.""
"This is not a vacation. Be ready to stretch yourself, dig in and look for ways to serve others."
"You have to go to experience it words, video and pictures won't get close enough to the experience."
"you had to be there or you have to go."
"DO IT! its a once and a live time opportunity, and once you go once youll want to go and go again. Its a great experience."
"If your heart is in into helping children and getting the experience of a lifetime, then there is no limit at this orphanage. That the only limit there is is the one that you set for yourself."
"The highlights of my trip were when the kids and I were able to reach across the language barrier and share stories of their lives, faith, and dreams for a better future. I was touched by how close these kids felt God in their heart, calling them to make a difference in the future. Even though these kids surroundings look meager to us, they have giant dreams and it was great to see them taking small steps to achieve them. Working and living with the other volunteers was also a highlight."
"I loved teaching in the schools! These children are happy that we are there, and we are facilitating, not helping, so our service is more useful to everyone who lives in the area. I think that that is why [Outreach360] is so great."

We will never be able to make a difference until we allow know what differences need to be made. This was a great program that really opened my eyes. I think it was well organized, had GREAT food, and the staff was very involved. I think Erick and Coco did a fantastic job. I really appreciated the movie, Coco's speech and Erick's talk on the history of Dominican Republic. The interns there are also VERY helpful. Overall GREAT experience."

I felt stretched the first few days there but after you see the children and how excited they are to spend time with you, it is very rewarding and awesome to see the unity that the community has surrounding the orphanage. I would recommend anyone go, whether it be a family, a group of friends, church, or just going alone. It is eye-opening and a very enjoyable blessed experience."

"I was able to change the way I see the world, and serve it's people all in the same week."
Daniel Lewan, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"So many of us are striving to welcome God into our hearts claiming to be Christians in hopes of eternal life. Quickly in our materialistic, fast-paced, success driven American lives, we forget the words in Matthew 18:3-5 which state, "I tell you the truth, unless, you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me." While serving as a part of [Outreach360], I seen the ways in which children were perfect and precious in God's sight and all the parts of my life that simply were not. My time spent at the orphanage and in Monte Cristi was a rejuvenation, a reminder of innocence and humility, and a peaceful escape from "reality". Let these children change your lives the way they have mine.""
Jessica Metcalf, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU

Matthew Monroe, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"Do it! Wow, I never thought I'd have the opportunity to serve in the Dominican and as soon as I put my "yes" on the table God provided the way to get there and it resulted in a week's worth of learning, loving, and serving that I have been forever changed from. Every single person from the US should take a trip like this and have the opportunity to learn about the Dominican culture and to spend time with children there to understand what it means to have pure joy in the midst of hardship.""

"My trip to Jaibon with [Outreach360] was a real eye opener for me. I have to admit that I experienced a bit of culture shock at first but I got over that really fast and had a great time. The kids were so willing and eager to learn everything we had to teach them but I really think I learned more than what I taught. I had so much fun just spending time with them and getting to know them and I can't wait to go back!"

Jamie Zumbro, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"I honestly enjoyed every single aspect of my trip to the DR. I loved building relationships with the kids and seeing just how much of an impact a simple hug and smile had on them. I also loved the relationships I got to build with the other interns-we became one big family throughout our stay there and I will never forget our time together. Our trips to the beach, Dajabon, Santiago, and Santo Dominigo were great opportunities to see other parts of the DR, to experience the culture, and to interact with the people. I'm extremely grateful for every experience, every opportunity, every relationship, and every memory that I've taken with me from the DR."
Amanda Lyons, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU

Erica Lake, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"[Outreach360] allows you to become the serving hands and feet of an organization from the moment you step foot into the program. With this approach and encouragement to completely submerge yourself but allow for flexibility so quickly in a new environment will allow volunteers to see service in a new light, and recognize skills in themselves they did not necessarily realize were hidden in their hearts that now beat to serve the children and people of the Dominican Republic."
Taylor Galmarini, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"Orphange Outreach is GREAT! It is LOVE. Love is a reflection, because love is learned! Love reflects who loves you (GOD), how you've been loved (FAMILY AND FRIENDS), and how you love yourself (YOU). One then expresses that reflection by the love they give to others (THE WORLD)! OnE lOvE..."
Stacey Bush, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"The children were so happy and beautiful! I loved being able to teach and see their understanding and improvement in just a weeks time. Learning about the culture was an awesome opportunity in itself, by allowing me to feel and think through another cultures way of life. The moments that stood out most to me was the childrens excitement as we played with me and how proud they were of the place they lived. I was only with OO for two weeks, but I truly feel like I made a difference."
Michelle Hunt, His House Christian Fellowship - CMU
"Before my [Outreach360] trip, I had been to the resort areas of the Dominican Republic three times on vacations. I loved being at the resorts, but was always fascinated by the country itself... the way people lived and what they were like, the history... I would literally sit glued to the windows on the bus rides from the airport to hotels, trying to observe and take in as much as I could. [Outreach360] allowed me to satisfy my curiosity about the country. I actually had no idea I would learn as much as I did. I got more out of this trip than I could have ever imagined when signing up. It was tough to meet the kids and then leave them so quickly and I have doubts about the impact I personally made, but I know that as an organization [Outreach360] is definately doing something positive for the people of Monte Cristi. I came home shocked, proud, refreshed, in awe and wanting to find more opportunities to volunteer. Unfortunately, people in the United States are not as friendly as people in Monte Cristi and one thing that I will always miss is being able to smile and say hello to every person I pass. I have tried it at home and it is just not the same. The people in Monte Cristi were the friendliest, most gracious group of people that I have ever met. I may not have personally left a lasting impact, but [Outreach360] has left one on me and I know they are doing the same for others."
"This experience has been incredible. The trip challenged me in ways I never imagined and left me with a new sense of reality. I consider myself lucky for having the opportunity to be part of [Outreach360]."

Brittney Hauck, Hope Community Church
"There is such great need in the orphanages in the DR, and[Outreach360]is playing a life-changing role in the lives of each child. By participating with OO, I had a chance to help fight for those who cannot fight for themselves. I had a chance to love those in need, AND.... I had the chance to RECEIVE love from those children in a deep, life-changing way. I am thankful that my path was allowed to cross with theirs....and look forward to the next time!"

Kara-Lee Dell, Humber College
"The highlight of my trip was playing with the children at the orphanage. One moment in particular was when I was playing baseball with the children. The pastor came out and began to play with us, and it was amazing to see how involved he is in all the children's lives. I loved how easy it was to communicate love with others through sport and play. I made friends with a lot of the children, and I only realized at the end of the trip how little Spanish I knew and how little English they knew. It was amazing how close I felt to these children despite the fact that we didn't share a lot of long conversations. Communication was purely done through body language and love."
Sarah Folk, Humber College
"The highlights of the trip for me was teaching the children at JFK elementary school. It was so much fun to do activities with them to help them learn their colours, fruits, etc. Seeing their faces get excited about learning english was really inpiring. It was also great to just let loose and play with the children at the orphanage, they really made the trip so much fun for me."
Nicole Phillips, Humber College

"One highlight of my trip was first accomplishing meaningful interaction with the boys. Timid at first, I was able to find common ground and really enjoy playing games or teaching English. Another highlight was the intense learning experience provided by John and Bryson. Because of the excellent talks on culture, poverty and history, the group got so much more from this trip. Everyone walked away pleased not only with the service they did but the things they learned as well."
Matt Simms, Illinois State University
"I have been on five service trips so far in college, and none of them have effected me like my week and a half working with Orphange Outreach did. I not only developed relationships with the boys on site and the OO staff, but I have never felt so connected to the people in my group as I did after working in the Dominican Republic."
