Playa Dorada

During my vacation time this week Chelsea, Anna and I decided to go to the beach for the day. We took the bus for about 3 hours to Playa Dorada, on the north shore. It was an amazing day. The beach there was so beautiful and the water was so calm and warm. Eventhough we ended up spending more time traveling than actually at the beach, it was all worth it. Despite the sun burn that I came home with.


Since I have been here I have acquired quite a reputation as a haircutter. I think the official count now is about 15 haircuts so far. Here are some cute pictures of my newest customer, Mia Marcela, the daughter of the dentist, Vanessa.

My Day as a Dentist

The school is on vacation for a few weeks so I have had some time to relax and visit some of the other SI sites. Here are some pictures from the day that I spent at the Dentistry office, assisting Vanessa.

It was fun to get to do something different for a day, but I don't think that sucking spit out of people's mouths is exactly my calling. :-)

Praise God for Dr. Vanessa, who is helping so many people with her dental ministry!

love, love, love

A few weeks ago I was blessed to have my friend, Marissa, come for a quick visit. Here are a few pictures of her helping out at the school.
It was so fun for me to have her here to share in this experience with me. The kids fell in love with her too. We had a great week together loving on those precious kids, touring my new home town and sharing a little Dominican culture.
