Wake Alternative Break

I know I’m kind of late, but my birthday was on the 17th and I just wanted to thank all the Dominican Deacons and Mission Emanuel for making it so special!  Y’all are the greatest people ever, and I love y’all so much.
Love, 
Allie :)

Today was muy heavy

Today we went to the leprosiarum again.  It was so cool seeing all the people there again.  They are so cool and just full of life despite their conditions. I feel like this interactions is the most valuable kind of service.  When you bring joy to people by just spending time with them, it is the most powerful kind of service.  Memories and relationships are going to have the most impact on the people that we are here to serve. GO DEACS.

Love,

Allie :)

Every once in a while, you meet someone who has such an impact on you, that they bring you to tears. In a world, which we run from pain, these beautiful souls in the Dominican Republic’s sole Leprosarium cherish it. For they would rather feel something than nothing at all. These women and men devote their kindness, love, and loyalty to any visitor, even when they face insurmountable odds themselves. This young woman touched my heart and my soul and I can never thank her enough for that. God Bless all of these men and women and may we walk in their footsteps.

Yesterday was our tour of the old town of Santo Domingo! There is so much history here and we found that out through from our enthusiastic and passionate guide, Angel. Pictures from above were taken at the moratorium, a handmade cigars shop, in front of the sign for the first street in the Americas, calle las damas (ladies street), and the first cathedral built in the Americas. We are so blessed to be able to partake in all these experiences, along with eating the most amazing Dominican food!

It was wonderful to have the opportunity to meet this very inspirational man. Raynato, hopefully I spelled his name correctly, is pictured with me above and honestly, before I arrived at the leprosarium, I was terribly nervous. However, talking with him and receiving his kind words and passion helped me understand that doing God’s work is oftentimes scary or mysterious however you always grow from it in the end. #DR2014

"Have compassion for everyone you meet.. Even if they don’t want it. What appears as bad manners, ill-temper, or criticism is always a sign of things no ears have heard, no eyes have seen. You do not know what wars are going on down there where the spirit meets the bone"
