In just a few days, our first Sisters Village team of 11 members will gather in Puerto Plata (on the north coast above). Many hours of preparation, conference calls, fundraising, packing of supplies and of course LOTS of texts and emails have brought us to this week. Stay tuned for updates or follow our trip on Instagram or Facebook (links below). We love to hear your comments, so we know you are with us in spirit! Specific prayer requests include unity for the team, willingness to let go of our American biases, safety and strength for each day and that we shine the light of God to all we meet on the trip. We are so appreciative of all our supporters....muchas gracias and Dios te bendiga!

Such a special day in Centro de Salud! Many of these “Sisters” were part of the pregnancy workshop in April. They were so excited to be together again, comparing notes on their babies, discussing post-partum challenges and offering encouragement to the pregnant attendees this time. All of us enjoyed some baby cuddling time as well!
One of the ongoing projects for Sisters Village is providing high quality prenatal vitamins and baby clothes for the local women. Also included in these gift bundles are artisan soap and lotion from Barnyard Creations, https://barnyardcreations.org/ , created by my longtime friend Cathy Konkler. (Cathy was part of the 2016 health team in Sosua.)
More to come in the next blog....still sorting through the almost 500 pictures of our week! Dios te bendiga!
