Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

DAY 3 | Dominican Republic

DAY 3 | Dominican Republic 2012

Our team of 22 students, 3 teachers, and 13 parents are spending their Thanksgiving break ministering to those in the Dominican Republic. Working alongside the Manny Mota Foundation they have been delivering uniforms and toys to children in the area and will even prepare a traditional, American Thanksgiving dinner to hundreds of people. We will be following them closely and updating our blog with the latest pictures and video of their adventures. Please check back often! 

Today, all the guys with Destinee and Tahna went down to an orphanage in Santo Domingo. The orphanage had about 13 boys in it. We played football, soccer, and baseball down at a field. Joe DeFina gave all the kids hats that he had in his bag. Afterwards, we took everyone in the bus to get ice cream. The kids were loving the ice cream and the playground that the ice cream shop had. Finally, we went back to the orphanage and gave all the kids gift bags and sang a song. The kids were really happy and I had an absolute blast!

Today at the foundation we had all of the girls except for Destinee and Tahna who were at the orphanage. While at the foundation we set up a store for the mothers with babies and we held a luncheon for the older women of the community. The store went well and we fulfilled the needs of the mothers. The luncheon also went well, we blessed them by feeding them, giving them gift bags, painting their nails and sharing about how we look up and respect our grandmas.

One of the auction items at last year’s golf tournament was ‘Lunch with Mr. G’, which the students cashed in today. Save the date and plan to join us for this year’s tournament on May 14th at South Hills Country Club! Yesterday our team was able to provide 50 moms with diapers/wipes/baby clothes and over 100 families with groceries and over 150 people with medical care at the clinic. Our team is soaking it all in and debriefing every night to discuss what they’re feeling and learning. #drtrip2018 Our medical clinic saw 98 patients today! Our students served food, distributes shoes, played with kids, painted nails, and ultimately shared the love of Christ with children at the Manny Mota Foundation today. Read more... link in profile. FCS alumni, Sophia Lorey, was so impacted by her 8th grade trip to the DR that she returned this year, her senior year of high school, with our team! Read about her experience today on the blog!
