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.
