Day 3

Burlington 2014 HANDS Team:

Wakeup call at 7:00am today! Breakfast was served at 7:30am and then Daniel picked us up at 8:00am. It was a very interesting drive through the busy city of Santo Domingo. We got to the school at 8:45 and put our work gloves on and continued our work on the walls.

The school was open today so we got to meet some of the children and teachers. After lunch we went for a short walk around the village by the school. The children of the village love to walk along with us and show us around and go in pictures with us. We worked till 4:00pm and came back to the center and showered and then we were served once again a delicious supper. After dinner we did devotions and had a team discussion. Later that night we went to town to Carrefour (the mall) and looked around and had ice cream. We came back to the mission center and relaxed and chatted and then we went to bed.

Hi all, It's great to hear that you're all doing well. Must have been a bit of a nerve wracking first day!

You're missing record cold temps here! Should be warmer when you get back.

Special hello to Jeannie and Diane, and to John also, though I shouldn't skip Bill either. We're thinking about you all, and praying that it will go well with you.

Enjoy, and it's great hearing from you.

love, Al and Janet

Hi all and especially niece Jeannie sounds like a good venture, no sleeping in and no golf! Keeping busy all day enjoy it and proud of all of you for taking time from your schedules at home to help make things better for the kids over there. Pictures and updates appreciated. Aunt C.
