Orfanato Ninos y Ninas de Cristo, Dominican Republic

Just returned late last night. The trip was very productive and was nonstop Friday through Sunday. Bottom line is that we really made a difference in the lives of 172 children - ranging from food security (health), holiday gift giving (child welfare), Lisa's acquisition of water heaters (infrastructure), electrical components to install the air conditioners that Lisa bought last summer (infrastructure), stocking their library with purchased Spanish books and encyclopedias (education) and so much more.

Someone in the group said it well in that many go in with an expectation of trying to endure through all the strife they see but in reality meet the most loving group of 172 children anyone would have ever imagined.
