Sunday, May 3rd

We went to church in Munoz again this Sunday. There was a lot of very enthusiastic music. Terry read out some scriptures and a letter sent from Pastor Scott to the congregation. It was a real blessing for the congregation to hear from their friends in Canada.

We hung around talking and playing and getting to know people; you can see that they truly enjoy spending time with us. We met some of the children's families. One mom has a bad heart and there is nothing to be done. It is sad to see very young children mostly taking care of themselves. When we were in one of the villages with Karen, we met a family whose mom had died and the 7 year old daughter is now the chief cook. Lots of prayer is needed! One of today's scriptures was about hope - truly a lifeline here.

Saturday, May 2nd

The last two days have been rest days for our group. On Friday, we went to Sosua public beach which has gorgeous deep golden sand, aqua water and snorkeling. We celebrated my birthday, and I can truly say it was one of the best ever (aside from bonking my head on coral while trying to follow Brian through an underwater cavern)! In the photo, we are having lunch (Brian's treat) with a pineapple with a singing birthday candle Deanna brought along. On Saturday, Tim and Nicole rode into Puerto Plata with our interpreter, Paul, to purchase supplies for the church and school with some of the money from their fundraising. They got to take motorcycle taxis! In the photo, they are with Patrick, the school Director, and some toys, guitar strings, microphone and other much-needed items.
