Friday was a half day of clinic at the same location as Thursday. We had a line of patients waiting for us when we arrived. It was great to see some of the same faces two days in a row. In the afternoon, we ventured to Santo Domingo, the capitol city. We saw the worldâ€™s largest cross and the Western hemisphereâ€™s oldest church. We were let loose on the supermercado and all came back with treasures that were much cheaper than asking price. We fed pigeons, ate ice cream, and jammed with a local street band. It was a great change of scenery and much needed break.
Saturday was a free day! We slept in and then the majority of us loaded up for a day on Catalina Island. We took some dramamine and a double-decker boat out on the high seas for some snorkeling. We spent the afternoon on the beach just soaking in the island life.
We are so thankful for a weekend of relaxation and rejuvenation. Please pray that we would rest well so we can have energy for a full week of clinic ahead of us and that the Lord would be glorified in our Sabbath rest.
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."
