3/26/23 Christ Venice Week in Mission


This morning we had a more leisurely morning before church. Most days we are up with sandwich making at 7am, devotions at 730am, breakfast at 8am, and out the door by 8:30am. Since I didn’t do a great job blogging throughout the week, here is a summary of the week. The team arrived in Santo Domingo on Tuesday and we drove back to Santiago. Wednesday we were in Cuesta Arena all day. The guys painted the outside of the school “Amarillo Sol” (Yellow Sun). Medically they saw 73 patients. Thursday we headed to Cuesta Arena in the morning and then Villa Liberacion in the afternoon. We saw 52 people in both locations. Friday we spend the entire day in Los Cocos. They saw 82 people and we painted two houses for community members. Both houses didn’t even have concrete floors. After Los Cocos we came back to eat dinner and drop some team members off at the hotel. The rest met church members in Cuesta Arena for an astronomical experience. All week we have had two astronomers with us painting a mural on the second floor of the school. On Friday they set up their telescope and we saw the moon, some constellations, and mars. The kids in community were so excited. It was also the first time I saw a lot of the kids because they were in school all week. On Saturday we headed back to Cuesta Arena for our last work day. We started the morning by taking a walk around the community (more on this later). We saw more patients and the guys painted the inside of the school. Kendys had asked for a grey color. So when we went to buy paint and saw one called Gris Arena (grey sand) we knew it was the right color for the school. In the afternoon, the kids came back to play volleyball. All in all it was a great week of work. Today we will head to church, head back to Sairy’s for lunch, then do some sight seeing and shopping. Monday we head to the beach and then Tuesday we all head home.
