Batey Santoni

Posted by Paul Field on Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Today we took a bus out to the bateys, we installed about 20 water filters. I liked putting the water filters together being able to help people makes me feel really good about myself. seeing the smiles on these peoples faces after we installed them was very inspirational. after we finished with the water filters we handed out bubbles and many of different things, most of the kids didn't know how to blow bubbles and i enjoyed showing little kids how and making them happy. I wish these people had a better place to live, going inside their homes and seeing how they live is really sad. They have animals that they can’t even feed, because they almost cant feed themselves. We also took pictures of the teenage girls and grown woman and then showed them the pictures, they thought that it was awesome and seeing huge smiles on their faces gives me the best feeling in the world. This is totally eye opening and i would do it again in a heartbeat. -Jurnee Larsen

Ah, the good ol' days in the Portland airport. Here, Marie and Page share their excitement. Here in the D.R., they continue to be excited. They are wonderful people.
