The vision of Children of the Nations is to raise children that transform nations. COTN sees itself as a “movement of people” gathered by God to provide quality care to children under His guidance. He has created a worldwide body of people with a common passion to care for children. Children of the Nations is not a “missionary sending” agency but utilizes individuals from around the globe, tapping into their talents in a professional manner, which strategically assists in accomplishing the goals of the overall mission.
The Gathering fell in love with COTN (Children of the Nations) in the fall of 2012 and wanted to build a relationship through them with the children they help in the Dominican Republic. We began sponsoring children, hosting food and hygiene packing parties and growing in our love for people we had never met.
In the summer of 2013, we traveled to a place we had never been, to serve people we had never met in our adopted batey of Algodon near the Haiti border.
In the summer of 2015, we traveled once again to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus to our friends and children in Algodon.
