PLEASE SHARE A FEW HIGHLIGHTS FROM YOUR GLOBAL EXPERIENCE.
Each day was filled with activities which kept me busy. I was able to experience Santiago, Puerto Plata, Villa Tapia, and Punta Cana. I was able to experience “The Dump,” where people sort through trash for recycling that they can then trade in for money. We handed out sandwiches and cold water to the people working. The house was a main component of our trip and was fun. I tried to prepare myself for how hot the Dominican is, but I was still so hot, and I was drenched everyday by the time we were done. I did not realize how much I appreciated air conditioning until I went on this trip. We also hosted a carnival for children while we were there. It was fun to see the children so excited. A main highlight for me personally was the church service. I do not know much Spanish, but I could get the gist of their prayers and music. The church was so lively and welcoming. Their music was beautiful. I could not help myself but to clap and dance along. Watching the people rejoice in the Lord and share the same passion for Him as me was beautiful to watch and experience.
