Dominican Republic Discipleship Trip 2014 - Day 6 in Santo Domingo ready to go to Jarabacoa (July 28)

Day 6 is today, Monday, and I am posting it now, because I will be unable to do so later.

Now, this is a shorter post because I don't have a lot of time today, we've all been packing and well...we played Mao. (it's the evil version of Uno) The unfortunate news is that now we will be going up into the mountains where we shall not have internet for something like a week. So, if I or your kids don't email for a week, know that they aren't ignoring you, rather we just don't have contact with the outside world.

We were supposed to leave at 9:30...but it's AFTER noon and our ride is not here yet.

The plan was for someone to go to Bravo market to pick up food then come pick us up, but so far we are just hanging out. Everyone is journaling, checking email one last time, napping, reading their Bibles, or just chilling for a bit.

Update...remember that chicken from yesterday that I said I would come back too? Here it is...

Pollo (Chicken) is the only meat that Mr. Raimundo was very adamant that we do NOT eat in the DR. But yesterday for lunch it was served to us, and most of us gathered it up and set it in a place where no one would eat it. Unfortuately, a couple people were more adventurous and had a go taking on the hormonal chicken. DRians pretty much raise their chickens on hormones, which is why it is unsafe to eat.

This morning, those couple of people woke up sick. Both Andrew and Knepps (Emily) Knepper are sick and they are the only one of us seven to have tried the chicken. So, pray they get better because it's not at all fun being sick in the DR.

Please pray for:
- Andrew and Knepps to get better.
- No one else to get sick.
- Safe drive to Jarabacoa.

In Summary:
Time means nothing.
Stop eating chicken...unless it's American Chick Fil A (in that case, please take me!!!)
Pray for people not to eat the chicken...just nooooooo....
I love you all, and will talk to you in a week-ish...

I Timothy 2:5-6
“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.”
