Last Moments in the DR
The past week has been spent updating sponsorship information for COTN. We were able to get to know the principles at each school in the bateys and interact with the children one on one. We have estimated that we’ve interviewed about 300 kids! At times it was very chaotic but also very rewarding.
Andrea decided to sponsor a child and got the opportunity to meet her and tell her that she has been sponsored! Her name Greici, she’s 16 and wants to be a pediatrician.
In other news, we have developed an addiction to an ice cream store called Bon, where we went for the fifth time last week :) The last 4 days we are here, we are going back to Los Robles where we placed the ProVectors to do a two week check up. We will ask the families if they have noticed a smaller population of mosquitoes in their home in the last few weeks. We are excited to see the results of this, hoping that the ProVectors have already started doing their job, infecting and killing mosquitoes.
It will be difficult to say goodbye to some of the staff members here – especially our translator Pepe and our bodyguards Oval, Willy, and Renzo.
We return on Saturday and would love to talk more about our trip and share more stories and photos with you!! Thanks for all your prayers and support!
Andrea, Lily, Millie, Natalie, Nichole <3
