The first Foreign Missionaries of Fullview were established and commissioned in June 2009 to their first assignment in the Dominican Republic. Sisters Verlinda Baity and Lisa Simmons spent six weeks of training to prepare themselves for their soul-saving mission. Fullview has continued the foreign missions by sending its first team of missionaries to the Dominican Republic in 2010. The missionaries spend a week in the remote mountains of Barahona, Dominican Republic evangelizing door-to-door, holding Christian Bible Study for the adults, Vacation Bible School for the children, and providing personal hygiene supplies to the women. In 2013, the first Medical Ministry was formed and served over 600 patients with various ailments. In 2014, that ministry was expanded to include dentistry and some vision. The number of patients seen were recorded at more than 800.
The purpose of this ministry is to spread the love and word of God to senior citizens residing in Nursing Home facilities.
