It is so wonderful to be back in the Dominican Republic! This morning we attended worship at the Community Transformation Center in El Carrizal. Pastor Jose spoke a powerful and passionate message about not blaming others for our own sin. After worship I was able to find several children and teens that I met last summer. I was surprised that they remembered me and seemed genuinely glad to see me. I was even able to pull up pictures of them on my phone. It was the highlight of my day to see all their smiling faces. Later, we drove to the beautiful Playazul Resort. After an amazing lunch we walked down to the crystal blue water and collected stones to take home. I took a rest in a hammock and enjoyed the breeze. I’m excited to get back tomorrow and minister to the sweet children of El Carrizal!
