We are happy to report that spring teams have been going very well. We started out with a team from Jupiter Christian School. This group has been such a huge blessing to us here in the DR over the past 7-8 years. When they come they bring so many donations we can hardly transport everything from the airport to Jarabacoa.
We have hosted teams from JMU, Ferris State, and Taylor University, just to mention a few. Since Feb. 5th we have had about 169 outreach participants with us here in the DR. We have also been able to host a group from Wintonbury Baptist Church in Wintonbury, CT. While they were here we had 13 people working in Dentistry. We have six portable chairs and all were being used at the same time. We had three dentists pulling teeth for five days. We also had three hygienists working at the same time doing cleanings. There were people who assisted and others sharing the gospel. Thank you Wintonbury and everyone who helped make this possible.
During this same week Dr. Fernando Gonzales took a group to La Vega to a very poor neighborhood to help some other missionaries in a medical outreach. That day Dr. Fernando and his two students saw over 100 patients. They came back to the base exhausted. Praise God for touching the hearts of students to come to the DR to be apart of what God is doing here.
