Day 1 - Arrival!

Guido 2013 HANDS Team:

Hey everyone!

Well we're here!

Waking up early this morning, we all met at the Buffalo airport around 4:45am. We soon realized just how hectic march break was for vacations! A couple of us got delayed in baggage and caught our flight with just 5 minutes to spare! Thankfully, our stop over in Atlanta went very smoothly.

We made it to Santo Domingo, DR, safe and sound at around 2:30pm. We were treated to lunch and then arrived at the ministry center around 4:00. We explored a bit and were showed our rooms. Right now we're quite tired and still trying to process being here & prepare ourselves for this amazing expierence! :) We already met some amazing people and are excited for the days ahead!

Thanks be to God who gave us His traveling mercies and makes all these expierences possible!

So happy to hear that you all arrived safe and sound! We hope you have a good sleep tonight and are refreshed for an amazing time in the DR. May God continue to bless you and cause you to be a blessing to those around you. Love Kim's mom!

Great to hear you're all safe in DR!! Tell Kim DJ that her husband and sons are fed and well. It's great you have this concrete opportunity to reflect the love of Christ!
