Hi friends and family,
Today we returned to the community Mata de Cadillo to continue our work for our CAP project. We continued to build the walls of the kitchen and finished building and painting the table as a personalized gift to the community. in order to get as much done as possible, we all split up based on our personal abilities. People were working on the walls, while others helped design and paint the table. After a hard day of work, we came together with the community to share our gratitude. They were extremely thankful for all our work and dedication even to the point of tears. They reminded us that we always had a home there. Once we returned to our accommodation we had three hours of explore time where most of us walked downtown and experienced our first storm with rain sprinkles in Jarabacoa. The air is fresh and the lightning is bright. Now everyone is starting to settle down and get ready for bed. As we end our trip in the DR, we are so excited to share our experiences with our friends and family.
See you in two days!!
