Team Welcome Dinner
Our team all arrived in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic today! For many team members, this was the first time we were meeting in person. After arriving at the airport, we traveled about 35 minutes to our hotel, Hotel Hodelpa Nicolas de Ovando in the Colonial part of the city. We enjoyed a team lunch and were able to spend a little time exploring the city. We met up again for our team welcome dinner and enjoyed fellowship by the pool. Tomorrow we will participate in a walking tour of the city before departing for a 3 hour drive to our project site, San Juan of la Maguana. We are excited to get started building and are thankful for this opportunity to serve the amazing people of the Dominican Republic!
