Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

DAY 1 | Dominican Republic

DAY 1 | Dominican Republic 2012

Our team of students, teachers, and parents traveled many hours yesterday to reach the Dominican Republic for their week long service project. Over the next few days our team will be working alongside the Manny Mota Foundation to deliver uniforms and toys to children in the area and even prepare a traditional, American Thanksgiving dinner to hundreds of people. We will be following them closely and updating our blog with the latest pictures and video of their adventures. Please check back often! 

Today was truly an eye-opening experience.  It was a shock to see how many kids needed food and clothing whereas, we were full from breakfast and had closets full of clothes. It made us realize just how blessed we were and how many gifts God has given America.

It was great to see our group come together and help the needs of the people no matter the circumstance.  Like Spencer, Nick, Tyler, and Chase for example; despite the humidity and the heat they cleared away a pile of rocks without any complaining. Ryan was cheerfully handed a group of boys items even after they were physically tackling him.  All the others did great things in Gods eyes.  It was truly great to see God work through them.
