Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

DR Trip 2 | Day 2

Hello, this is Zachary Reid, Riley, and Dayton. Today was our first day at the foundation and we were greeted with quite the welcoming. Today we saw a home run derby and handed out awards to the winners. There were about 200 Dominican teens who were there to watch the derby and cheer on the players. But the really big show came before the events started with a huge helicopter on the baseball field at the foundation. Manny called his friends from the Dominican Air Force to show up and they flew up in the sky and had 6 people sky dive down into the stadium. The last person to land had a parachute that was the Dominican flag. Everyone was cheering. It was so cool!

Next we sorted donations for our trip to Azua tomorrow. We made about 300 bags full of shirts, pants, toys, candy, and hygiene products for each person we meet tomorrow. It took a while to sort everything, but we had a really good system down between parents and students.

We had a delicious lunch and Ms. Rychen, Ms. Dow, and Izzy’s grandpa went to the supermarket and bought a ton of food for 15 families in the community. They bought rice, chicken, vinegar, oil, pasta, salt, beans, bread, and so much more! We walked around El Tamarindo where we passed out bags of groceries. During the walk a student, Cassie Martinez, performed a moving prayer in Spanish. The people truly appreciated the groceries and the prayers. More people asked for items, so we told them that we will pass out donations on Monday.

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!
