Community Center CONSTRUCTION BEGINS! 

Thank you to all of the faithful community center donors and supporters! After more than 6 months of fundraising, planning, negotiating a land donation, begging the mayor’s office for free sand and organizing our work crew we finally broke ground! 

Today ~20 people showed up to mark and dig the footer which is nearly complete. The sun got too high and everyone (including me) wanted their rice and beans so we broke until next Saturday. 

More photos to come. 

Es pa’ lante que vamos. (We are moving ahead. Dominican saying.)
