Big Bear is Home!

Big Bear left on Friday the 25th with the Mission Team from our church to the Dominican Republic to help build a church.  He FINALLY got back late last night.  These are a few of the pictures from their experience.  They worked on building a new church during the day and walked the streets in the evening to show the Jesus film (which is the story of Jesus).  Most people in the area they were in do not have electricity, so they show the film with battery packs and ipods and projectors.  One night they were in a house the size of our living room and showed the film to around 20 people crammed into that space.  

Day 1
 Every day next to where they were building the church, people brought their goats to tie up to eat grass.  Then, came back to get them later. I asked Kevin if he still wanted goats after being around them so long and he said, "Yes, we are getting 4." Ha!

I am proud he has had the opportunity to go the Dominican with our missions team several times.  He loves it.  I did miss him more than usual this time though!  Usually it takes me a few days.  I must be getting soft in my old age. :)

What a wonderful experience for him - So nice to see a group of guys that dedicated (without women there to encourage them) Amazing to see your photos as well. It's so hard to grasp how some people truly live.
