This past quarter has been incredible! I'm excited to report on so many wonderful things going on in the Dominican Republic.
In addition to our regular ministry with children and weekly discipleship classes, here are just a few of the special things we've been up to:
- In January we had our annual team retreat - a time of reflection, goal-setting, team-bonding, celebrating accomplishments & great learning.
- We celebrated three weddings with members of our team: Yahson & Yela, Lisiana & Richy, Kenia & Roberto. Congratulations to all three couples!
- A neighborhood clean-up day in our newest community: Don Juan. We spent the afternoon cleaning up garbage, washing, cutting and braiding hair, and sharing joy with friends and neighbors.
- Putting the mortar and paint on our first Ramas Vivas house and celebrating the way God brought this all together for Yolanda and her family. It was the first house built entirely by our team, construction sponsored by Cherry Grove Church, and Rita from Pennsylvania covered the cost of the mortar and paint. Truly a team effort and a joy to be a part of this gift.
