Hello to our friends, family, and supporters at TBC! Our third day serving in the Dominican Republic was a blessing and encouragement to the Palo Blanco community as well as our entire team.
In the morning, we joined the children at Anija, a Kids Alive Pre-K—9th-grade school in “downtown” Jarabacoa. We joined them in a Spanish singing of “Stand up, Stand Up for Jesus”, and then the Dominican national anthem during the flag raising. Finally, we joined the children in a morning prayer before the school day.
During the day, we did another preschool workshop in which we did a story, craft, activity, and snack all centered around the Biblical story of Noah! We were blessed to interact with the children and simply have fun with them. The men painted a second coat in the sensory room and then began assembling the equipment, as shown below.
In the evening, we had a candlelit team dinner because the power was out! It created a beautiful bonding experience where we shared our challenges and highlights from the day.
We finished the night with our daily devotion on the back porch of the team home.
Again, thank you for your daily prayers for our team and for the people we are serving. We appreciate your support. We could not do this without you!
Blessings from the DR!
Dilo, Naomi, Brad, Glenn, Darlene, Christian, Becky, and Felicity
