I've been back for just over a week.
(It feels so much longer than that.)
The trip itself was good. If I had to sum it up in one word, I would say "hot".
Mostly because it was constantly in the 90s and the only way to escape the heat was to take a few showers each day.
But there was so much more to the DR than just the heat. The landscape, the people, the food, the way God is moving in His church there...it all adds to the beauty that is the Dominican Republic.
I don't necessarily feel the need to unpack this trip the way I did with Africa. It was a different experience, being on the leadership side, mentoring students who were experiencing a third-world country for the first time.
