Safe Arrival

Posted by:Devyn Horsley and Andrea Bonorandi

We arrived in Puerto Plata safely. We immediately noticed the difference in culture when we walked out of the airplane. Mrs. B had some fun dancing with a bunch of Dominican musicians at the airport. The lush green and forestry in the country is absolutely stunning. We also made a new friend right away. He came walking up to us and followed us around. Our new friend's name is Stephen, the puppy :). We met our cook, Norma, who prepared a delicious dinner for our team. We had rice, beans, chicken, and veggies, followed by chocolate peanut butter brownies. She also made us a native juice using fresh fruit from the area. The mission house where we are staying is walking distance from the beach, and we get a gorgeous view of the ocean from our bedroom window. Tommorow we are going to the Mustard Seed orphanage for mentally disabled kids and MetroWest Caribbean School.

Glad to hear you guys arrived safely! This brings back great memories; it feels like it was just yesterday that we were at the MetroWest mission house. I'm looking forward to hearing what the Lord is going to do this week. Surrender yourselves and this trip to Him and He will do great things through you!

P.S. - Mrs. B. has a tendency to dance with random Dominicans. Get used to it. :)
