Brianna Bloodworth, Christ's Church of the Valley
"Too many highlights to mention in writing, because it would take forever:1.The kids. Meeting the children of Monte Cristi was certainly a highlight. We loved meeting them, talking with them, teaching, playing, and singing songs. What a great experience! 2. The hospitality of the Outreach360 Team. I can't say enough about how accommodating the Outreach360 team was for our group! Their instructions were clear. They were patient as we adjusted to our new surroundings and our teaching assignments. They were attentive to the 'needs' of our group, and were concerned about how we were doing. They were an encouragement to us. They offered great insight to our group about the Dominican people & culture. 3. Our Boat Excursion. Definitely an awesome experience_I highly recommend this for other groups! A HUGE THANKS for pulling this off and making it happen! 4. Our group. My final highlight was watching how our group 'bonded' throughout the experience. We weren't all from the same church or campus, and had people in almost every life phase, yet we grew closer together as the week progressed. Many have called the trip 'unforgettable', 'the best mission trip I've ever been on', etc. For me, I'll never forget THIS team and the relationships we made. All in all, through the memories we made and the friendships we forged, it made for a completely priceless experience. "
Dennis Bloodworth, Christ's Church of the Valley
"So many amazing highlights: *Working with the kids was so inspiring. *Going to the island to hike to the Lighthouse & swim *The market and bridge was unforgettable *The early morning hike and swim *The Salt Flat tour and town tour *The Ice cream shop *The amazing Volunteer Leaders- Apryl, Amanda, Blair and of course Tomas! "DO IT!" Outreach 360 was very organized, we had amazing food and our "extra" activities made the tough (sticky) weather worth it."
Mindy Coronado, Christ's Church of the Valley
"The highlight was seeing positive results in the English learning experience with the kids. Join up. The experience with underprivileged kids seeing them grow and become more literate in English and other social skills is awesome. "
Sally Davis, Christ's Church of the Valley

Translating the church service, connecting and building relationships with the locals and my group.The beach, island, hiking, Dajabon, dancing class,everything was a great experience in Monte Cristi.

"Highlights were working with the kids, obviously. Seeing the greater vision of what you guys are doing and knowing that we were a part of something bigger than ourselves. The constant communication through teaching tips, cultural talks, etc. really kept us connected to the program throughout. Benefits of Outreach360 - great experience, very life on life with the kids and leaders, cost effective because it's close to the US. It is an experience that is mutually beneficial for the trip participants and the children in the community."

Krista Jones, Christ's Church of the Valley
"The biggest highlight for me was the relationships built with our CCV team. I appreciated the diversity of events included during the week such as the dancing lesson, cultural night and short trips through out the week. Apryl did an excellent job leading us and keeping us organized. I appreciated the structure combined with free time every day. Be prepared to work hard, maintain a high energy level and understand this mission is not about evangelizing but about serving; serving each other and serving the poverty inflicted children of Monte Cristi. "
KIRSTEN MASHNI, Christ's Church of the Valley
"It was truly an amazing trip! The highlights were meeting the staff and watching the students interact with them!! Truly amazed by the gift they show week in and week out.

"This is an excellent opportunity for personal growth and cultural learning as you share your skills to work with children in Nicaragua."
Jessica Price, First Church of Nashua
"If someone I knew told me they wanted to join Outreach360, I would tell them that it is an opportunity through which they can change, not only their life, but the lives of the children they will be teaching and mentoring, and thereby the community as a whole. I would tell them that they will gain first-hand knowledge of what life in the developing world is. It is an experience I wish I had the been able to participate in when I was of a younger age (high school) and a tremendous loss to anyone who does not take advantage of the chance to participate in an Outreach360 program, if they can."
Jordan Price, First Church of Nashua
"Absolutely do it. Without a doubt one if the best decisions you will ever make, so inspiring and life changing!"
Hannah Shuman , First Church of Nashua
"The whole experience was exceptional: the outreach staff was well organized, enthusiastic, gracious, and appropriately directive, the accommodations surpassed our expectations, the historical/cultural education (nightly by staff along with documentaries and quizzes) was a valuable addition as well as the well conceived field trips (Pe̱a de la Cruz hike, pottery cooperative, coffee plantation, local church service etc.) and time in the community was also important. Our chefs were outstanding, the children amazing. I have already recommended this to others and anticipate returning if possible."
Heather Tallman Ruhm, First Church of Nashua
"It is a wonderful organization. Educating the children for the future. Giving them a chance to make changes in their community. Not taking care of them, but providing them the means to take care of themselves and their community."
D. Patricia Bridgman, Church of the Word
"Highlights included watching the kids faces completely light up when they saw us walk by or show up at camp. I also really just loved how much energy that they had. They were so willing to get up and learn new dances and songs, and just so eager to learn in general. Absolutely, go do it. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and it will most definitely change yours. The kids are wonderful, the Outreach 360 staff and volunteers are amazing, and you will honestly have the time of your life."
Hannah Fakoury, Church of the Word
"While Outreach 360 is not a Christian organization, it offers a wonderful experience for church people who want to honor Christ through service to others. You do not really preach to anyone. But even better, you get to share the love of God through hands on service. I was thoroughly impressed with how well prepared Outreach360 was. Everything works like clockwork... from the terrific meals three times a day, to the work scheduling and down time. Anyone going to an Outreach 360 base has nothing to fear in a foreign country. All the support is in place for a meaningful and positive service experience. Thanks!"
Peter Fakoury, Church of the Word
"Working at the camp and getting to know some of the local kids was absolutely one of my favorite things about my trip. I also liked getting to know the other volunteers at our site."
Dylan Ramirez, Church of the Word
"It is a wonderful program and the experience is great."
