Dear Brothers and Sisters in Albany Diocese,

Praise God! We have returned from our mission trip to the Dominican Republic—safe and sound. By God’s grace, we worked hard, praised hard, and shared the love of the Lord with our brothers and sisters in the DR. The construction team worked on a safety wall around the school that we earlier had helped build. It was a joy to see it filled with students. Vacation Bible School saw over 100 students a day. The children’s smiles lit up the sky. The women’s sewing group of about 35 a day brought women together who did not speak the same language, but who new the same Lord. The medical team taught CPR and first aid to students and teachers at the Episcopal Church. We met a team of doctors and students who every year work at the clinic that we built on one of our previous trips. We had lunch with our favorite three nuns and laughed a lot with them. It is a pleasure to serve the Lord in the DR. It is hard to believe we are home again. We pray that God will continue to bless these very dear people, our friends in the DR.

God Bless,
Deacons Polly and Charlie Bailey
