Well, this was the last day and we are flying out tomorrow. I hope you know from the previous posts that we had such a blessed time serving the kids in this way. Today we went back to Valla Hondito and played with the children and passed out more candy. Then we went to Las Canoas to administer a food program. It brings so much joy to our hearts to share Jesus with them and to providde much needed food for their little tummies. Without the food they cannot concentrate at school and they have no energy to play when their stomachs are hurting with hunger pains. It is because of our donors and the grace of God that we are able to help these poor villages. We pray to expand our mission here in the Dominican so please forward this to people you know for prayer and support.
As a small reward for a hard working team, we went to a small beach to swim and play. My 6 years daughter loved it as she was asking about it for the years since she was here last. It was also a great time of fun together with our Dominican leadership team. They enjoyed the short break and we told great stories from the week. On mission trips you not only form strong, lasting friendships, but memories that last forever. That is all in addition to the blessing you receive by kneeling down to help a child.
We are already talking about next years dental trip and all the up coming trips this year. God is moving here and we would like you all to be a part of it. We are so thankful that He wants us here: "I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that he consider me trustworthy, appointing me to His service." 1 Timothy 1:12
