Minesterio de Gracia

Here are a few pictures from the school: Melani, one of the younger sisters, often comes to the school to hang around with the "big kids". She is hilarious; she never says anything, but she just watches everything that everyone does with a serious look on her face.


Besos de Esmeralda. Here in the DR it is customary to kiss on the cheek as a common greeting. It is something that I've come to really like, especially from the kids. :-)


Johanna and the kids.



Correcting work....




Playing marbles with the kids.





Here are both of the classes at the school in Mata Gorda. Johanna (left) is the teacher who I work with. Alberto is the other teacher who works with the younger kids. The woman on the right was here for a week as a volunteer.
