Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

D.R. Trip 1 – Day 1, We’ve Arrived

Monday was a day full of blessings. When our two buses arrived at the compound, an estimated 210 children were on hand to welcome our kids with a loving embrace.   Once the team was settled in, the students took to the field to play games and forge new friendships. Caleb Robles, Tifanny Hall, and Seth Broussard were just a few to comment about the sheer joy they experienced by offering piggy-back rides, and playing soccer.

While these kids are all attempting to use some dimension of their Spanish, the common agreement is that they’re all communicating beautifully with the universal language of smiles and laughter.

It was a busy day for adults, as well, as they unpackaged boxes filled with uniforms, used clothing and shoes, medicines, and other needed items.

It’s Tuesday in the DR. Students and parents are preparing for another day of ministry at Manny Mota’s compound in El Tamarindo, about a 45 minute drive from the capital city, Santo Domingo. Today begins the process of community distribution and school visits.
