I did not take near as many pictures as I should have on this trip, but I am sure that I will get some from the other people on the trip. We had a very successful trip and saw God working in so many lives. It was great for me to visit and catch up with people that I have met on trips in the past, both Dominicans and Americans and see how well they are doing. I painted some but the murals were beyond my talents. I am not a people painter. I was able to help out and do some lettering on projects. There are always so many stories to tell and I never know where to begin....or end. Part of our group did Vacation Bible Schools and part built a house for a family. Our church was able to fund an addition on the Compassion school that is located there and we were also to deliver bags of food for 75 families in a Haitian Village.
We had a baptism service in the river near the center where we stayed and it was an amazing moment to be a part of. I have never seen a baptism anywhere except inside a church and am so glad that I was able to be a part of that.
I was up yesterday AM at 4 and did not get home until 3 this morning, slept for four hours, then went to church this morning and my granddaughter's birthday party this afternoon. I am so ready to sleep!!!!
