|Brandon and Jules- The Group Leaders|
Fellowship Round Rock didn't waste any time and they jumped right in and started off their week visiting Chichigua, which is one of the villages that Makarios serves. They played with the kids and spent time visiting with some of the adults in this community. It was a great way to begin their week
This group was a blessing to have in our home. The theme they chose for the week was "Grace" and it was evident that they were applying this concept to areas of their life as well as to different aspects of the

|Working and Playing at Makarios|
On the last day, we took the team to the beach to process what God had taught them and prepare them for their re-entry into the States. It was also a nice chance to get some R&R after a week of blood, sweat, and tears. (Literally!) God had been at work among us-
At the end of the day, there were 2 people who asked to be baptized. So, we gathered as a team- worshipped and prayed- and then witnessed God's Grace as one student and one adult were baptized in the ocean.
As I stood on the beach watching God at work, I was reminded of the conversation Doug and I had at the end of our 1st trip to the DR in 2011. I was standing almost in the exact spot where we first began talking about feeling called to work with Makarios in the DR. As I watched and heard the roar of the ocean waves, I couldn't help but think about God's creation, His power, and His glory. It was a perfect ending to a perfect week. Thank You, Fellowship Round Rock for being the hands and feet of Christ...
Love from the DR,
