In February, a team visited the Dominican to help a local church put up a new building. The team members helped with block work, cement work and putting up a roof.  But when they left La Romana, the building wasn’t quite complete.

However, we’ve received an update and the progress with the building is moving right along! The note and pictures below document what’s happened since the Dispatch team returned home.

The floor, front stage, shudders, doors, and stuccoing was all finished.  It was interesting to see the detail they had included in the entrance of the church and the stage area in front of church which showed the pride they take in their new facility.   The group inspired the community not only with their presence but also with their dirt moving, concrete hauling, forming of columns, roof building, and interacting with the children.  – Duane, contact with CRWM
