Construction Crew Gives a New Floor to a Family
Todays highlight was the Construction Team pouring a floor for a local family consisting of a Mom and five children. This was a really practical work today providing a very basic need for this family as the home had a dirt floor. The guys had joy doing it in spite of the hot sun. The medical team continued to see patients and had wonderful stories which I will save some for them to share with you. I will share one as an elderly gentlemen named Juan came in to the clinic holding his tattered Bible. His blood pressure was very high so the team had him wait for about 10-15 minutes before they took it again. While Juan was waiting Linda saw the man squinting to read his Bible. With that, she grabbed a pair of the glasses we brought to bring to him. He can SEE! He started praising God and thanking him for his provision. Tomorrow we visit San Pedro de Macoris and our sponsored children from Compassion International. Hard to believe the week is almost over but God has given us many opportunities to love and serve here in the Dominican Republic.
