My Spring Break - In the Dominican Republic
This past month I had the opportunity to go to the Dominican Republic with a team from my church to begin the construction of a new church building for a small congregation in the hills near the border with Haiti. We are replacing a structure that we built 5 years ago that is now way too small for the folks who worship and gather there. We spent a week in the remote village of Cana Segura (check out the Google map of the area... Here), where it was in the 90's every day, where farm animals roamed freely, and where our help was really appreciated. That said, our team of 11, assisted by a few locals, laid about 1500 concrete blocks. Lots of sweat. Lots of fun.
