Mission Possible XVI: Day 5: Thank You God!!

Day #5 Thank You GOD!! One of the locals, who helps us, has some facility in English.  One of his phrases is, “Thank you God.”  It’s somewhat engaging to hear him use this broken English phrase.  It is one that I have heard him say often.  For example, tonight it rained (literally on our picnic).  It has

Open the Doors to Christ

Just a quick update from the DR.  We are working hard to finish up the Church for dedication on Thursday morning at 10:00 am.  Tonight the lights were turned on!  It's actually easier to install the electric by night as they have no power during the day....so tonight the lights are going in and coming
