2016 Dominican Republic Mission Trip Day #4

Another amazing day!

The eye clinic doubled its patients and saw 252. The medical clinic saw about 120, and the dental had 68--most needing tooth extractions.

The baseball camp was open for the first time and had 53 kids.

The Princesas outreach to girls has increased each day, with most groups having around 70 girls. Today, they had so many girls that they ran out of crafts and had to improvise. What a great problem to have!

Six of the seven houses are completed and will be dedicated Thursdy morning.

The last house will be completed this morning and is being celebrated as the 5,000th house built by Casas por Cristo! This house is also special for Northside because it is the all-women's build. 

The teams are all doing great and having an incredible week. Lots of tears will be shed today as we say goodbye to the families and kids at our projects. We give thanks to God continually as we experience his never-ending blessings!
