Each February, members of the Eastwood Seventh-day Adventist Church, in a collaborate effort with Marantha Volunteers Internationl, join others in the unique opportunity of spreading the Gospel throughout the world by building much-needed church and school buildings in countries such as El Savador, Dominican Republic, Peru, Dominica West Indies, and Belize.
Every Sabbath, thousands of people gather to worship in a garage, shed or under a tree. Every day, five new churches are needed just to accommodate new members. In response to this urgent need for places to worship, Maranatha Volunteers International has begun the initiative to provide worship space for over 300,000 people all around the world. This program is an organized plan to build urgently needed houses of worship in places throughout the world where the Seventh-day Adventist Church is growing rapidly. These churches will be constructed in India, Peru, Cuba, Dominican Republic and other places where there are very urgent needs.
