Hello everyone! We made it safely to the Dominican Republic last night after a fairly smooth, uneventful day of travel. As I’ve said before, after flying 17 hours from South Africa to Atlanta, I can handle anything. These 2 hour flights are no problem! Play a couple games of Sudoku, take a quick nap, and before you know it, we’re landing! 

Customs were painless, as well… I think when someone sees a group of 30 people all wearing the same shirt, they just don’t want to deal with us. Although we appear incredibly tourist-y in our matching shirts, lanyards, and name tags, they’re incredibly effective.

More later! We are about to start our day – breakfast, team meeting, and then we head into Cotui to hold church with the community. I am beyond excited! Prayers for good weather would be much appreciated.
