Day 7

Well, our last day of ministry in the DR was a great one. We woke up early and went to the Reformatorio, a detention center for boys ages 14 to 17. We sang, performed our skits, and preached the Word of God to them, and they just drank it in. Most of them prayed to receive Christ at the end of the service.

From there, we went to a high school and ministered to the 9th grade class, and returned again after lunch to minister to a different group in the same school.

Our day was far from over, however. We then visited a small school for deaf children, and ministered to them in sign language. From there, we went to a television studio, and put on a live one-hour TV show that is hosted by a local evangelist. Boy, did our kids get a kick out of that!
After that, we returned to the poor village called Los Rieles (The Rails) to say goodbye to some of the children we are sponsoring and give them toys and presents before we leave.

Tomorrow, we plan to leave La Vega and travel to the capital city in the morning, and stay at the Dominican Fiesta Hotel tomorrow night. Our flight leaves Santo Domingo on Thursday at 12:20 pm.
