About the Country
When Columbus first stepped foot on the Dominican Republic, colonization began. Although this Carribean nation now stands as a democratic republic, they first gained independence from the U.S. in 1924 and ended a dictatorship in 1961. The Dominican Republic shares the Hispaniola island with neighboring Haiti. In recent years 800,000 Haitian immigrants and refugees have poured into the country to escape poverty.
With the church rapidly growing in the Dominican Republic, Afro-Spiritism often mixes with Christianity, so we pray for God’s true gospel to be heard. We also pray for the Dominicans and Haitian immigrants facing poverty and political corruption. We pray that God’s Kingdom prevails in this nation.
