     Well, Im not in Africa anymore, but I did have something exciting to show a few pictures of. Bob and I are in the Dominican Republic. It has been 5 years since we have been here, after spending  many weeks, during15 years and nearly 40 trips coming here to do mission dentistry.  This time it is just to renew friendships and relax.
     Those of you that know Alfi, the Dominican boy who lived with us from age 9 to 18 (6 months with us in Wisconsin, and 6 months back in the Dominican)....well its been great to see that he has 2 business's going here. A Photography studio and a cafeteria snack shop, located on the school property for kids to purchase breakfasts and snacks.
     His father, Fidel, is currently President of the National Evangelical Association here in the Dominican Repbulic. He is also the National Leader of Operation Christmas Child here. He oversaw 28 ....40 foot containers of shoeboxes, that arrived here this January. Wow.
      We were able to go on a distribution once again. What a joy to see the faces of wonderment and delight in the children who receive the boxes.
      If you packed one this year............maybe we delivered it. Thanks. and God Bless.
