Branch of Church
Your housing is in the boundaries of the Dangriga Branch. The Church meets in a rented house about 1/2 mile walk away. Covid took a toll on the branch attendance because there was no Zoom option. Previous Sacrament attendance was roughly 60-75 and the Church had purchased a parcel to build a chapel. Current attendance is meeting about 10-15 and the Church has put the chapel parcel up for sale.

Handling of Expenses
The cost information about each location includes an estimated monthly budget as well as one-time expenses like airfare. Depending on your own lifestyle choices your expenses may be more or less. You will directly pay for all of your own expenses except for lodging. AEA has contracted for long-term leases for the housing locations and you will make monthly rent payments to AEA while serving as a volunteer. The monthly lodging rates shown in the budget above are current and fixed. When you apply and reserve an AEA location you will be charged the first month's rent in advance as a refundable deposit. Subsequent rent will be paid monthly, one month in advance. The AEA Local Coordinator will show you how to pay any other local expenses.
