El Progreso is a church outside of Panama City. They have been serving the community for 30 years, and part of their ministry is to serve children. They have planted five churches from this location, and would like to expand part of their facility into a two story addition, to increase their ministry to the community, with similarities to our church’s prior project in Rancho Arriba, Dominican Republic.
Fairview is currently participating with El Progreso’s Child Development Center in Panama. Here the children come for a hot meal, tutoring, Christian education, and a bi-monthly health checkup. Renovations have been completed to stabilize and maintain the existing building, and construction on a two story addition has begun. Fairview Village has planned trips for August 2017, February and August 2018, and 2019.
Fairview will be taking teams to work on the construction of the project, to have classrooms, bathrooms, a kitchen, dining area, preschool care, office and meeting space for the children. These will be the second and third of at least six trips that Fairview will make in 2017 – 2019, with work on columns and walls of the first floor planned for these two trips.
A medical mission program is tentatively planned for the February 2018 trip.

Work & Witness Team • Spring 2015 Continued progress in Rancho Arriba, Dominican Republic:
Great progress has been made! A lot of physical work has been done on the site during the team’s stay. They spent some time watching the students learn in their classroom, and had a little extra time to play with the kids! Special recognition of 10 year old Nathan Fisher, who worked hard all day long, right alongside the team (he even outlasted some of the adults), and he did it all with a smile! He said that working on the building was the highlight of his day each day we were there! Seeing how The Village Church is impacting the lives of families in this community here in the Dominican Republic, is truly an amazing thing. It is a team effort on all fronts – Thank you for your continued efforts and support!

• Compassionate Ministry
The Village Norristown is located at 329 East Main Street, Norristown. The goal of our Compassionate Ministry Center is to bring the message of the Living Christ to the people of Norristown and equip them with the tools to build a better life. We are dedicated to building strong, positive relationships and working together with the community. One channel we use to implement a solid foundation at TVN is our After-School Program, which we launched in 2016. This program includes after school tutoring and various activities for underprivileged children. Another positive channel we use is our Celebrate the Journey recovery ministry. We also have a Single Mothers Ministry which offers a support network, parenting skills, a financial education program, continuing education information and much more! In the near future, we will also begin looking at other programs for children, youth and adults.
