Cotui

 

So many have started seeing pics from our Dominican Missions trip and know we worked with Endeavor, El Circulo, & ICC. Our first project was working with our friends from El Circulo at a Church/School they support in the Mountains on the Dominican Republic located in the city of Cotui. One way to Cotui was 2 hours, so needless to say we pulled some very long days. But as a result had some spectacular views in the heart of the DR.

So our main job over the 4 days was to strip down and repaint the entire church/school for the upcoming school year. And what I learned from this is I SO CAN’T PAINT! Haha…But in all seriousness it was awesome to work hand in hand with our El Circulo brothers and sisters. God is good!

The two things that struck me the most over the 4 days was the pure happiness of the kids from just playing with us & how my view of poverty is WAY skewed. Living in the US and realizing truly how many #FirstWorldProbz I had (not even trying) was definitely an eye opener.

And…yes I so got to bust out my beach volleyball the last day. And even though this is a baseball country…there are some serious athletes down there. So much fun…

Lastly…I purposely left out Nicole and Sandia from this post since I want to make individual posts on both of them.
