Day 3

Some of us woke up tired today, but once we arrived at La Vega Christian School and saw the kids waiting for us in their chapel service, our team sprang into action. This time, we sang songs in English and Spanish and performed two of our world-class skits (the choreography is amazing). Afterward, I shared a brief message on the narrow road vs. the wide road and we memorized Matthew 7:21 (Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven). Sorry the video clip is so brief, but the Internet here is too slow to upload big files.

After chapel, it was recess time and our team accepted the challenge to face the Dominicans in basketball and volleyball. Tim Hulse was very proud of the fact that he dunked the ball for the first time.

Our first day on the construction site worked out great, despite torrential rainfall. Our team worked hard building the foundation of an extension on a local church before the rain forced us inside. Many local village children visited us at the site and made the experience a memorable one.
