Just a short little post to fill you in… I arrived safely on Thursday night in Santo Domingo. Thank the Lord that I made it through customs alright with my 3 checked suitcases, carry-on (containing four laptops,) and backpack! A friend picked me up from the airport and drove me to the house where I am staying with friends. I am more grateful than words can express for the amazing friends I have here and how wonderful they have been to me. I went in to the Compassion office yesterday to bring all the gifties and to visit with everyone there. It is very hot here, but perhaps not quite as bad as I imagined. It’s nice to be on vacation.
