Final Full Day

Calgary HANDS Team:

Our time in the Dominican is coming to an end, and what an experience it has been.  On Monday and Tuesday this week we worked back at the Belen School.  Our construction addition project is truly coming along and taking shape.  During our time, we removed a holey tin roof, busted through concrete walls, framed up the forms for then new roof/ceiling and worked with rebar.  We are so happy with the progress we have made but are slightly disappointed that we won’t be able to view the finished project.

After our final work morning, we were invited into the Principal’s home to share lunch and tour both his and his mothers’ house.  Their contentment and joy with their situations are truly humbling.  We left with the knowledge that we are always welcome to return along with a few email addresses and Facebook friend requests.

We had the opportunity to visit three other Christian Reformed Schools run by the same organization this morning, along with a lunch visit at the Christian Association they are a part of.  We have been so blessed by this opportunity to serve in this capacity and thank you for your prayers and support while we were away.  We look forward to updating you this Sunday at Covenant with more stories, photos and videos from this amazing trip.

Please pray for our safe return home, as we travel and return home in the morning.
