Church Service and Final Dinner

We began our last day in a special way. We attended worship service at the church we have helped financially support as well as build this week.
Several team members participated in the service: Enrique preached the sermon , Linda, Todd and Charlie spoke and thanked the congregation, and Priscilla sang.
Our construction crew has spent many back breaking hours this week and were able to see the results of all that labor of love. Several community members were in attendance and overwhelmed with appreciation to be able to attend service in their own neighborhood.
Our construction crew wanted to give back to the local laborers who they worked so hard along side each day. They presented the men with tools and supplies they had purchased.
In the evening, the team was able to briefly see the historic parts of the city and all the ties to Christopher Columbus. We gathered together for our final team dinner with Pastor Gabriel at a very unique location. The restaurant was built in a beautiful cave with access down to the eating area by spiral staircase.
This day, just like the others this week was so very special. From worship service in our church to bonding together over dinner as a team.
