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.

We've had an action packed summer here at FCS! There have been over 45 field trips taken since June 2nd and we still have two and half weeks left! Over the past week Mrs. Robinson, drama director/teacher, has been in New York at a Broadway teacher's workshop. Her training included seeing four shows and being taught by actors currently on Broadway. What a unique learning experience that she will get to incorporate into her teaching at FCS! Photos: (1) pictured with headpiece from the original Lion King, (2) Q&A with cast from Come From Away, and (3) backstage with Chad Kimball, Tony award winner and star of Come From Away. #comefromaway Shop AmazonSmile (link in profile) today on Prime Day so that 0.5% of your purchase price is donated to the FCS Educational Foundation, which supports the school and important campus improvement projects like the new gym floor! #amazonsmile #primeday
